“What a tension of childhoods there must be, held in reserve at the bottom of our being, for a poet’s image to make us suddenly relive our memories, reimagining our images by starting from well assembled words. ” Bachelard 115
Darkness clouds through the grey starlight
Twinkles in the wide open sky
Worlds across the ether open to the night
As dawn rises the fog shrouds the earth’s mask
Slowly covering all in the shroud of morning dew
Waking to the dim light covered in warmth
slow to rise for the dreamscape lingers
Dreams of the sunlight
Dreams of the dark
As eyes open the sunlight beckons
the warmth of the every shining star
burns the sheet of grey and the world awakens
soft chirps sound in the distance
It is morning
and the dark is but a memory
“These images melt together in an intimate warmth, in the constant softness where the nucleus of the feminine bathes in every soul” (Bachelard 64)
The woman to my left
Your softness caresses my dreams
Where you stand tall and proud in my arms
Cradled in white,
The white of the pure
the white of the just.
You embody all that I am not
and all I can never be
Yet here you stand softly in my arms
shoulder to shoulder
hip to hip
in a loving embrace.
You are all that is female,
You bare your soul for the world to see
You show your heart so that all my see
And here you stand
covered in white, the white of our first night
For you are my love
you are my joy
you are my wife.
“Sometimes the words are unfaithful to the things. They try to establish oneiric synonymies between things. The phantomalization of objects is always expressed in the language of visual hallucinations.” (Bachelard 49)
Chaos (f) How can this be defined now that it is changed into something different? Would we say that chaos is now something not to fear or at least shun?
Love (m) How can we say that this form of love is not the same. Can we?
I say these are but one in the same. The (f) Chaos is quite the same as (m) Love. The idea that you could be thinking the same as I is unheard of, however, the meaning still lies just beneath the surface of the words and their designations. Do you think I am talking about masculine and feminine?
