Thinking of you, Patti, and Fred Sonic Smith, on your wedding anniversary. Here is a little poem by W.S. Merwin.
ANNIVERSARY ON THE ISLAND
The long waves glide in through the afternoon
while we watch from the island
from the cool shadow under the trees where the long ridge
a fold in the skirt of the mountain
runs down to the end of the headland
day after day we wake to the island
the light rises through the drops on the leaves
and we remember like birds where we are
night after night we touch the dark island
that once we set out for
and lie still at last with the island in our arms
hearing the leaves and the breathing shore
there are no years any more
only the one mountain
and on all sides the sea that brought us
Once again, lovely...perfect. And thanks for that beautiful rendering of Emily Dickinson's poem on Marginalian. That was the most - intimately- that I have ever felt her poetry. Its very interesting and inspiring to me how you encapsulate both the delicately peaceful and the rebel warrior. https://www.themarginalian.org/2020/08/06/patti-smith-reads-emily-dickinson/?mc_cid=75e5b74ccc&mc_eid=2bde8a7110.

Beautifully recited. Thank you Patti!
Accidentally deleted my previous post but just want to express my awe and respect for the brave citizens of Ukraine for their resistance and the brave protestors in Russia for their refusal to accept the lies and the madness. And thank you, Patti, for sharing that beautiful poem. So timely. ✌️
Sleep safe till tomorrow.
When my son was very young I showed him how I find solace in nature. How I gain balance in nature among loving beings great and small. We are natural beings needing a natural world in order to thrive. The Machines are pulling us away from our Natural World. The Machines that slither in this world need to be seen. Our senses are being dampened. The media is assaulting our minds from all directions. It takes great effort to escape exposure to the media. News of the war is part of the plan to keep us in fear. When children act like they are not paying attention, it's time to pay more attention.
my boots are on
i am a peaceful warrior
above the fear frequency
write on, Patti donna in vt
What beauty. Please keep my brothers and sisters in the Ukrain safe. My they find a safe place to sleep. May sisters arms be intertwined and their babies, brothers, fathers and husbands come home to their loving arms.
