MASTERPIECE: David Bowie with Queen, video of “Under Pressure”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gpn8MANhdLU&noredirect=1

The link is right above this. I hope it works. There’s no commercials or anything. I will thank the youtube person tomorrow. My time is running out.

Please watch this, if only for the sake of the blogger whose site you are viewing.

Much, though I have long appreciated this song, I would pray for it to become outdated.

When you think of 2013, controlling your thoughts for positive karma, giving thanks for blessings, remember those who didn’t fare so well this year. Let their pain find your heart for a moment. How far can our innocence carry us if ever we couldn’t choose to look away. I know this paragraph is grim, much more grim than the song. The song is very good to dance to, in case you didn’t know.

It will be a perfect warm up for an energetic celebration. By the time the song and later the year comes to an end, you will be relieved to have a chance to continue in another dance another year.  The music sings, “This is our last dance.”

What a lovely way to look at it.

The Foundering Wake of
a Shanghai-ed Monogamist

No sleep no move
one man where mid
night has happened
already doesn’t care
as the sun pierces
through my yawning pupils
clear to my memory
and another year is almost gone.

The anguish is fading too.

Opinions Life is so
much easier as
long as we have those

eventually
not having an opinion…. IS
having an opinion that’s
a relief…..as

I said–so much easier.

Poem for Daily Prompt, Metamorphosis

How we Middle-agers Earn Our Wings

The un-remembered

tension:

butterfly

with

pick and shovel

mines

to find the diamond

sky.

Without question,

Born to fly.

Not

so for

the writhing

Human–

born of

breath’s

determination;

born

to gravity,

finds the gavel,

sure of nothing

nor

of why.

Till

in hard-

blood

sequestration,

quinquagenarian

muscle

dies;

to show us

life

among

the wise.

To Zeus. Please Don’t Go.

I have grief.

My friend lost his life

which hung him by his neck

I forgive the ones

who say it was for show

I forgive myself

for not being more alert

(I’m punished enough)

What dare I say

to answer any who didn’t know him

who would say it wasn’t justified

To defend him now

and now

and now

will become my greatest cause

I can’t imagine

life without him.

But it can imagine me.

I write this to him

as I miss him every moment

I might possibly have laughed

or been encouraged

or held tightly as we caught

each other’s tears.

Supernatural currents

obscured his necessity

from registering sufficiently

with my spirit.

He had cursed God

(hasn’t every saint)

but he trusted me.

Nothing now

for myself to do

but learn,

and mourn,

and make a difference

before it’s too late

for the rest of us.

Temple of Isis

Temple of Isis

This is an ancient Egyptian history site. I saw a lovely photo of the Temple of Isis that was reblogged from here. I saw so much poetry in the photograph of those ruins, I wanted to make sure I could access the original web site for further inspirations.
