Poet's Notes
(Show)

"A solitary star had gone astray, yawning before the dark,
hiding; straight ward, waver the wink of light, slowly fading.

By my window I shed a tear; I farm the fields of my soul."

 

Above the winter masses, buried, I wait for the sun.

Sweet smelling kitchen, the hunger rise, within, my tongue swings...

Rise away from the table...noisily I yell for my bike.

 

Downhill of Mount Olympus, everything feels real.

In the orchard of my dreams, I am structure as a statue.

Mr. Sandman made a fool, of my midnight summer dream.

"A solitary star had gone astray, yawning before the dark, 
hiding; straight ward, waver the wink of light, slowly fading. 
By my window I shed a tear; I farm the fields of my soul."


#2~"Down-under"
"Above the winter masses, buried, I wait for the sun. 
Sweet smelling kitchen, the hunger rise, within, my tongue swings... 
Rise away from the table... noisily I yell for my bike."


#3~"Dreaming with the God's"
"Downhill of Mount Olympus, everything felt real.
In the orchard of my dreams, I am structured as a statue. 
Mr. Sandman made a fool, of my midnight summer dream."

should read: ...oh what has the poet done to me to keep me chained to such beauty? You plant in that field of your soul seeds of beautiful emotions put into words for we here to enjoy in meditation. A way to say it that makes us see life in a different context, to farm the fields of my soul, Oh yes!
