The stream is dry…

“Thou art gone from my gaze like a beautiful dream.
And I seek thee in vain by the meadow and stream.”

vintage rose….

“They are not long, the days of wine and roses:
Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes
Within a dream.”

Ernest Dowson (sad life)

Half Light of Dusk…

‘in the half-light of dusk’

“…in the half-light of dusk…before the night has plunged
things back into themselves there is a settlement in which
the external and the internal are continuous with the evening air
if you are alone at the edge of shadows you are not alone
the hours of light shine in you with a compacted energy that
also burns in tree and stone partly revealed and partly veiled..”

Falling for you……..

“Say, care-worn man,
Whom Duty chains within the city walls,
Amid the toiling crowd, how grateful plays
The fresh wind o’er thy sickly brow, when free
To tread the springy turf,— to hear the trees
Communing with the gales,—to catch the voice
Of waters, gushing from their rocky womb,
And singing as they wander…
Spring-hours will come again, and feelings rise
With dewy freshness o’er thy wither’d heart.”

Robert Montgomery, Beautiful Influences,  A Vision of Heaven; and A Vision of Hell; 1829

At one with……..

The river gets into my being
As I sit here alone in the dawn
It’s wonderful, beautiful feeling
I feel like I’m being reborn
Oh what a sweet combination
All this morning, and nature, and me
I’m in love on this wonderful morning
Just me and this sweet mystery.

Peter Duggan, Oh, what a feeling in me

Chasing tail…..

‘…Here, hot and cold, fingers thick with
thinking, I try to tie the fly and look
for the net, loosening the philosophical
knot of why I came here today…’

Visual Addictions……..

“A visual experience is vitalizing. Whereas to write great poetry, to draw continuously on one’s inner life, is not merely exhausting, it is to keep alight a consuming fire.” Kenneth Clark

No offense intended to the poetically inclined………
