A love so deep…(poetry)


A love so deep…

I wonder not: I understand,

as love is what you are –

A chalice of gold with nectar, sweet,

That bees and man adore.

A kiss, a stare of a millionth a second,

a shiver o, so powerful and an enchanting prayer.

A love that lasted long enough so to become encrusted,

as name, as bone and blood and dust, a universe evolved,

a name, a bone, blood and dust, new universe…enchanting.

(By George)

It feels like poetry tonight, it feels like this all nights: Leonard Cohen – A Thousand Kisses Deep (Spoken Poem Live @ London 2009) An encore, by popular request



“You came to me this morning
And you handled me like meat
You’d have to be a man to know
How good that feels, how sweet

My mirrored twin, my next of kin
Id know you in my sleep
And who but you would take me in
A thousand kisses deep

I loved you when you opened
Like a lily to the heat
You see I’m just another snowman
Standing in the rain and sleet

Who loved you with his frozen love
His secondhand physique
With all he is and all he was
A thousand kisses deep

I know you had to lie to me
I know you had to cheat
To pose all hot and high
Behind the veils of sheer deceit

Our perfect porn aristocrat
So elegant and cheap
I’m old but I’m still into that
A thousand kisses deep

I’m good at love, I’m good at hate
It’s in between I freeze
Been working out but it’s too late
(Its been too late for years)

But you look good, you really do
They love you on the street
If you were here Id kneel for you
A thousand kisses deep

The autumn moved across your skin
Got something in my eye
A light that doesn’t need to live
And doesn’t need to die

A riddle in the book of love
Obscure and obsolete
And witnessed here in time and blood
A thousand kisses deep

But I’m still working with the wine
Still dancing cheek to cheek
The band is playing Auld Lang Syne
But the heart will not retreat

I ran with Diz, I sang with Ray
I never had their sweet
But once or twice they let me play
A thousand kisses deep

I loved you when you opened
Like a lily to the heat
You see I’m just another snowman
Standing in the rain and sleet

Who loved you with his frozen love
His secondhand physique
With all he is and all he was
A thousand kisses deep

But you don’t need to hear me now
And every word I speak
It counts against me anyhow
A thousand kisses deep”

An indigenous leader in western Brazil has been shot dead in front of his community, officials say.

Nisio Gomes, 59, was part of a Guarani Kaiowa group that returned to their ancestral land at the start of this month after being evicted by ranchers.

He was killed by a group of around 40 masked gunmen who burst into the camp. (Source: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-15799712)
