Tiger Striped Timbre

Postby Jakob » Wed Oct 11, 2017 12:03 am

In the morning light
they say things are different
but I find, differently,
that there are no things
in the morning, just light

Come with me and fly
I tell to my little song
it has been enclosed in my heart
where it terrorized and hid
from the terror outside

The song now grows a yelping
strangely I no longer hear
any melody or rhythm
except in the breathing between
that sometimes sounds hoarse

As a side comment
I should like to note
that the sky is blue
that the leaves are green
and the reservoir is replenished
For behold, all acts of love and pleasure are my rituals

I quite like this.
"Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don't bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: 'It's not where you take things from - it's where you take them to.'" - Jim Jarmusch
