Happy birthday Sun Ra and Gerard de Nerval
Thank you. Something new to me.
My favorite line, and something I need to remember often: "Often in the meanest being a God is hidden." I love that you introduce new-to-me poems and poets who write in French. My second language is French, and I can go search out the originals to blow my mind even more. So awesome.
I am catching up and listening to this on my own birthday. I love Nerval and am honored to have a birthday near to his. Thank you for this reading.
How very beautiful - Sun Ra and de Nerval. Exactly the morning muses for today. I am discovering and uncovering newness and beauty every day. C.
This really spoke to me.
de Nerval's influence is everywhere in theatre, poetry and fiction. Thank you for posting this.
Sun Ra and His Arkestra, spirit craves this soul music,
Each flower is a soul open to Nature;
I will keep this in mind on my next Nature walk.
All things are sentient!” And mold your being. 🌹
to the point. Something needed today. Patti, how do you do it? Some times, your words are juts so right in the very moment! merci xo
Safe travels to Scandinavia. LONG LONG white nights ahead, this will be really something x
playing the two together is awesome. the law of chance. a dadist cut up perhaps.
I think Nerval's poem is a bit too open-minded about everything in the universe,
A little bit painful .
I am moved by the soft metaphor
as the eyelid covers the nascent eye,
The thinness of existence and the softness.
I saw Sun Ra live once. He was so kind and seemed to love music with all his heart.
He was a creator with a depth of knowledge of the darkness of the universe.
My answer to the first question is no, all things have reason etc....Still this maybe why we pick up stones as objects of interest, but why oh why do some then throw them? Ever since my childhood we have been passing stones as gifts of friendship. Have you still got the amazing grey stone you shared with us last year Patti? And Thank you for this post it was most welcome 🙏 🤗
Wow - thank you Patti. Im 64, and didnt know of Gerard de Nerval! (Though I know Sun Ra...) So exciting that there are always incredible writers out there waiting for us...
LOVING the Smithposiums (Smithposia?!)
loved Gerard’s poem. 🌹
