All Dream Among The Flowers

 

 

 

 

I want to know God’s thoughts… all the rest are details.
— Albert Einstein

All dream among the flowers,

 

I grow misty thoughts

 

Beside the pond.

I feel blue spells

 

Under a steelish sky.

 

I divine glowing diamonds within the flowers.

The lust is coming,

 

Shadowed, tired.

 

I be watchful.

 

p1060782.jpg

 

The clouds have come.

 

Dark, ripe,

 

Shifting.

 

 

p1060784.jpg

 

I take comfort

 

Trying to remember

 

Those electric faces.

 

p1060786.jpg

 

Unsure, defiant,

 

Trying to remember

 

The next life waiting.

 

p1060779.jpg

 

 

Where in the end

 

The lovers seek

 

The road back, lost

 

 

p1060636.jpg

 

And wander

 

Aimlessly

 

While the rain fell,

 

p1060585.jpg

 

 

Not knowing why

 

The dire remorse

 

Should hurt them so.

And to some early Tangerine Dream:

(Warning: This is exemplary early 70s prog stuff… practically endless! So take your time – and indulge…)

  1. “Wenn ein Mann die Hälfte eines Tages in den Wäldern aus Liebe zu ihnen umhergeht, so ist er in Gefahr, als Bummler angesehen zu werden; aber wenn er seinen ganzen Tag als Spekulant ausnützt, jene Wälder abschert und die Erde vor der Zeit kahl macht, so wird er als fleißiger und unternehmender Bürger geschätzt. Als wenn eine Gemeinde kein anderes Interesse an ihren Wäldern hätte, als sie abzuhauen!” – H.D. Thoreau. Die Welt und ich. Aus den Tagebüchern, Schriften und Briefen.

  2. Aber hallo!

    “Talk of mysteries! — Think of our life in nature, — daily to be shown matter, to come in contact with it, — rocks, trees, wind on our cheeks! The solid earth! the actual world! the common sense! Contact! Contact! Who are we? where are we?”

    H.D. Thoreau
