About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Completing first poetry book.

ABOUT ME

A poet. Day dreamer. Nature and art lover.

PHILOSOPHY

Dance with the moon.

'But we insist there are
other voices
other ways of creating
other ways of living the
life'
(Charles Bukowsky)
-----------------------------------
-Luxorian Dawn-

Down a dusted alley an old
Toothless lady sells
Green leaves who saw
Better times yet still
That smile surpassing
Her face is the most beautiful of any
World wonder
While children of the alleys
Are convinced I’m lost
Directing me to where I must be
In need of main road temple train
Nearby grave
Cannot comprehend
Such a strange possibility
There is no place no time
Where I’d want to be more

(Mine, translated from Hebrew)
-------------------------------------------
Be drunk- Charles Baudelaire-

You have to be always drunk. That's all there is to it—it's the only way. So as not to feel the horrible burden of time that breaks your back and bends you to the earth, you have to be continually drunk.

But on what? Wine, poetry or virtue, as you wish. But be drunk.

And if sometimes, on the steps of a palace or the green grass of a ditch, in the mournful solitude of your room, you wake again, drunkenness already diminishing or gone, ask the wind, the wave, the star, the bird, the clock, everything that is flying, everything that is groaning, everything that is rolling, everything that is singing, everything that is speaking. . .ask what time it is and wind, wave, star, bird, clock will answer you: "It is time to be drunk! So as not to be the martyred slaves of time, be drunk, be continually drunk! On wine, on poetry or on virtue as you wish."
