The Great Event, impresions

I don't know if anyone has noted this before but does any body else see a connection with this song and the Theosophist composer Scriabin? "Scriabin devised a quartal synthetic chord, often called his "mystic" chord, and before his death Scriabin planned a multimedia work to be performed in the Hima...

Re: speechless

I like this, it spoke to me of the subjugation of the self in longing for another. Very good.

Re: Hello, I'm new to this forum... (introducing yourselves)

hi Vicomtesse, thanks for the welcome. When I look at what some of my contemporaries are listening to I do just wonder "why" I admit, but I try not to be toojudgemental, everyone has their own tastes I suppose, but really now x factor?

Adolescence in Napkin Poems

Adolescence In Napkin Poems You see the mirror outside your bedroom window in it your face young and handsome (laughing perhaps). You never wanted to change the world nor to be the poet of the age: (Which was lucky because you’re not) On a desk, some waiting to be burnt lie your adolescence in napki...

An Interpretation of "The Faith"

The subject of the poem, who it is addressed to is G-d himself in the emanation of Hesed, or love, this same emanation also encapsulates Abraham, who is acknowledged as the progenitor of Jews, Christians and Muslims, those who fight for every hill, who is also referred to in Issiah as "Abraham my lo...

The Master's Tools

Just a poem of mine The Master’s Tools There is the poem I long to write forsaking all other poems, all other arts. It was to be hauntingly beautiful so much so that people would shiver or even weep to read it, and when it was read aloud from raised pulpits or soapboxes people would fall to the grou...
