Longing

I fell in love with this vintage hat at an antique shop and I had to have it...

 

“There is a space between man’s imagination and man’s attainment that may only be traversed by his longing”

Kahlil Gibran

A feeling of sadness and longing that is not akin to pain, and resembles sorrow only as the mist resembles the rain.”

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“There is an immense, painful longing for a broader, more flexible, fuller, more coherent, more comprehensive account of what we human beings are, who we are and what this life is for.”

Saul Bellow


Somewhere Out There


Iced

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Robert Frost


Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man’s desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing’s as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love…

Secrets

 

“If you reveal your secrets to the wind you should not blame the wind for revealing them to the trees.”

Kahlil Gibran


Midsummer Night’s Dream

It’s not midsummer, but I am a dreamer…
