sphere of power, poetic thought by George-B (©always) (the smudge and other poems)

sphere of power, poetic thought by George-B 

(the smudge and other poems)

the sphere of power was robbed of one dimension.
the reminding circle is shivering
in confusing memory
of the once well adjusted  object of perfection – idolatry-
the circle’s shadowy plane hovers – like a Frisbee thrown and caught again and again –  until  dizzy and a little thirty…

Should the circle loose yet another dimension…well,  something like
a belt
neck tie
dead snake,
will be all that’s left,
from the sphere of power…

Today’s Birthday: CHRISTINA ROSSETTI (1830)

Christina Rossetti (1830)

Christina Rossetti was one of England‘s most important female poets of the Victorian era. It is little wonder that she became a poet, given her lineage. Her great-grandfather was a poet, her grandfather was a writer and scholar, and her father was the famous poet and scholar Gabriele Rossetti. Her three siblings followed similar paths. Religious themes dominate her poems, which run the gamut from romantic to devotional to children’s poetry. What popular Christmas carol did she pen? More… Discuss


Today’s Birthday: ARTHUR RIMBAUD (1854)

Arthur Rimbaud (1854)

Rimbaud may have put down his pen when he was just 19 to lead an international vagabond life as a merchant and trader, but in his few years as a poet, the precocious young Frenchman managed to create a literary legacy that would have a lasting influence on the symbolists and subsequent modern poets. He put his verbal virtuosity on display in works like “The Drunken Boat,” A Season in Hell, and Illuminations. Who shot and wounded Rimbaud during one of their many lovers’ quarrels? More…Discuss


A comment, (poetic thought by George-B)

A comment, (poetic thought by George-B)

Pain unscaleable,
unquantifiable on a scale from 1-10
with faces drawn 
more or less happy,
and some sad,

pain that hides in its own shadow,
become its shadow,

cut the branch we’ve landed on, to rest for a while…
While… all you can do
is imagine being painless for a quantum of an eternal moment:  
a note may be, or an entire song,
a rhyme, or even an entire poem,
While… letting go and sharing pain free,
glamourless, natural,
denuded of inhumanity,
hoping that you may be understood, taken seriously,
at face value,
as an immortal soul – in the making,
a mortal – body in the making,
as a star  – in the making,
a universe – in the making,
as a molecule – in the making,
a Rigs Boson – in the making ,
God in the making,
as an…!

Cyrano de Bergerac

Cyrano de Bergerac is an 1897 play by Edmond Rostand whose title character was inspired by a 17th-century writer with an exceptionally large nose. Rostand’s play, written entirely in rhymed couplets, relates the tale of Cyrano, a soldier and poet, who falls in love with the beautiful Roxane. Rather than woo Roxane himself, the large-nosed Cyrano provides his handsome friend, Christian, with the dialogue to win her heart. What word did this play introduce into the English languageMore… Discuss

Today’s Birthday: Luis de Góngora y Argote (1561)

Luis de Góngora y Argote (1561)

Góngora was a poet of the Spanish Golden Age who successfully wove Renaissance and popular poetry into an original and elegant form. Very influential in his era, he developed the difficult, complex poetic style that became known as Gongorism. It provoked enmity from many of his contemporaries and was so exaggerated by less gifted imitators that his reputation suffered until the 20th century. He has since been called Spain’s greatest poet. What is his most famous work? More… Discuss

The Sea: My Ultra-Short Poetical Movie

What better place for creative than ever changing interface between  land and water, continent and ocean:

The Sea’s perpetual movement, and the natural speed of the birds in search for the crustacea at the very edge of the water, intrigued me, and inspired an ever so short thought, about the brevity while still larger than life symbolism of the moments, few moments, that repeat: one of a lifeless nature, the other full with life.
