All of my work refuses/denies the camera’s eye.
The revelation, the experience,
occurs with an actual encounter – presence.
The beauty of one’s beloved is
the improvisational/sacred listening
of/ for/ to/ with
the beloved.

Poetry

Poetry (ancient Greek: ποιεω (poieo) = I create) is an art form in which human language is used for its aesthetic qualities in addition to, or instead of, its notional and semantic content. It consists largely of oral or literary works in which language is used in a manner that is felt by its user and audience to differ from ordinary prose.
It may use condensed or compressed form to convey emotion or ideas to the reader’s or listener’s mind or ear; it may also use devices such as assonance and repetition to achieve musical or incantatory effects. Poems frequently rely for their effect on imagery, word association, and the musical qualities of the language used. The interactive layering of all these effects to generate meaning is what marks poetry.
Because of its nature of emphasising linguistic form rather than using language purely for its content, poetry is notoriously difficult to translate from one language into another: a possible exception to this might be the Hebrew Psalms, where the beauty is found more in the balance of ideas than in specific vocabulary. In most poetry, it is the connotations and the “baggage” that words carry (the weight of words) that are most important. These shades and nuances of meaning can be difficult to interpret and can cause different readers to “hear” a particular piece of poetry differently. While there are reasonable interpretations, there can never be a definitive interpretation.
Perhaps the most vital element of sound in poetry is rhythm.

The Trio Eagle Cam – Devotion to her eaglets ~ April 27, 2019

 

 

I watched the trio of eagles daily.
The offering of witnessing the ‘story’ was a gift, a blessing.
The eaglets have since flown away.
The video above was a powerful testament of devotion:
the Mother as the shelter in the storm.
I am grateful someone archived this specific event of fierce devotion and instinct to protect.

The Navajo or Diné—the people—see the world
through the lens of hozho:
all the goodness to be found
through
harmony, balance, beauty, and blessing.

X

Read this well-known Navajo prayer aloud:

X
In beauty I walk
With beauty before me I walk
With beauty behind me I walk
With beauty above me I walk
With beauty around me I walk
It has become beauty again
It has become beauty again
It has become beauty again
It has become beauty again

CrAdLe.WiNg.ShIp. 2009
Sweet songs singing loving lullabies sheltering throughout voyages in air, on land and through waters.
No matter the storm soul story, welcoming with a soothing welcoming sigh: hello….hello. I see you. You are home sweet home sweet.
Veiling and unveiling.
The interplay and the interstices of all the elements.
Call and response.
Constant dialogue: whirling, overlapping, unifying and in silence creating new maps and lexicons.
The quiet point between the inhale and exhale: suffusing morning radiance.
We create and become the oxygen we breathe.
LET IT BE:
sweet
loving
patient
pure
gentle
resilient
clear
inspiring
true
HAPPY
courage
simple
calm
balancing
rising
compassionate
SWEET
HOME
sweet
LET IT BE
inhale/exhale
At last….
