WE ARE WHITE FLAMES IN BLACK
and we are silver candles,
smiles on roses,
and night shades.
We are ghostly shades
and the shapes of black
bonfires that melt through consciousness.
Perceptions are candles
and we are babes
who imagine the thorns of roses.
The petals of roses
make pink and blue shades
and scents over babes
who fear no black
in the hugeness of consciousness.
We are the autumn of consciousness
giving birth to spring roses
by the silverware next to the candles.
Not all of the shades
nor all of the purple and black
convinces us we are other than babes.
You know we are babes.
Each thing is our consciousness.
The cave is black
but it is filled with roses
–and though we draw the shades
we light the candles.
The bright glow is from the candles
in the hands of babes
who outline the shades
of perception in consciousness.
See there are roses!
They stand in the black.
Those are candles of consciousness
that show we are babes and floating roses.
We are shades of flesh turning on black.
Michael McClure ~ SESTINA
Roger and Brian Eno ~ Mixing Colors (full album)
This album was just released and it’s wonderful.
From the YouTube page:
Brian Eno and Chilvers have worked together on videos for the album Mixing Colours that distil the album’s essence, marrying the simplicity and contemplative qualities of its soundscapes with suitably uncomplicated, mesmerising imagery of slowly-changing, dreamlike panoramas. Whether or not these settings are familiar, their impressionistic character lends them an enigmatic anonymity, encouraging the mind to wander into worlds both real and imagined. “The more you listen to this,” says Roger, “particularly with the fabulous worlds that Brian has created, you can really walk into this enormous landscape and stay.”
Have a cup of coffee, tea, or something stronger, and have a listen.
For a Sunday project, please make a picture of yourself or your home or whatever is nearby for Pixels.
Here is the first video off the album.
Kinda reminds me of this one from two years ago. :)
