{tumblr} Johanna Streich ~ Stranded

tumblr_n3lkrgSAF11rdey8zo1_1280.jpg

Originally published April 6, 2014, on Tumblr.

The storm made bliss of my sea-borne awakenings.
Lighter than a cork, I danced on the waves
Which men call eternal rollers of victims,
For ten nights, without once missing the foolish eye of the harbor lights!

Sweeter than the flesh of sour apples to children,
The green water penetrated my pinewood hull
And washed me clean of the bluish wine-stains and the splashes of vomit,
Carrying away both rudder and anchor.

And from that time on I bathed in the Poem
Of the Sea, star-infused and churned into milk,
Devouring the green azures; where, entranced in pallid flotsam,
A dreaming drowned man sometimes goes down;

Where, suddenly dyeing the bluenesses, deliriums
And slow rhythms under the gleams of the daylight,
Stronger than alcohol, vaster than music
Ferment the bitter rednesses of love!

The Drunken Boat (excerpt) by Arthur Rimbaud

Sunset by Roxy Music

Oh, look at the sun, it’s all a-glow
Slow burning star, sinking low
Heaven knows where you go
Out of sight, out of minds eye, no

Aw, such a shame, you must leave
All day long you were a friend to me
Still, the moon’s company
Until morning when larks will sing

Horizon’s appointment you’ll keep
For sun swept flamingos must sleep
Scenes like these from my dreams
Cover cutting-room floors all over

Warm heart, we spin slowly from view
Why are you sad, do you disapprove?
How we’ve wasted our time
Sunset, end of my day, my decline

Postscript, you trace colors the sky
Red-letter light fades is filed away
Sunburst fingers you raise
One last sigh of farewell, goodbye

David Schuster ~ a sky so full of stars it will blind you

David Schuster ~ a sky so full of stars it will blind you

This was a daily pic from December, 2014. I had forgotten what a great piece of music this. Also the picture & poem! Thought I would share again.

Not vinegar. Not acid. Not
sugarcane pressed to mortar by
fist, but salt: salt, the home taste; salt,
the tide; salt, the blood. Not Holy

Ghost, but a saint of coral come
to life in the night crossing a
field of brambles and thorns, the camps
of pirates beat back to the bay

with hornets. Not Santo Niño.
And not a belt of storms, but this:
girls singing, an avocado
in each open palm, courting doves;

a moth drawn to the light of our
room you take to be your father.

Archipelagic by R. A. Villanueva

Happy Sunday.
