Writing a poem in another language
Being a part of the Holi Festival
I think it would be beautiful to write a poem in another language. I’m fascinated with the Hindi language; there’s just something so perpetually graceful and beautiful about it. Maybe I’ll be fluent enough to write a whole novel of poetry in another language someday. (:
I apologize for the nearly wordless, random post about India yesterday. If you didn’t already look it up or figure it out, the Hindi words were the title.
For some reason, especially as of late, I’ve had a passion for India. I want to visit there. I want to stay there for a few months. I think that will be my initial first travel goal: India. Hopefully I’ll be able to make it either a couple months before or directly before the Holi Festival of Colors. I want to partake in that celebration. Did I add that to my It list already? I’m not sure I did. I’ll add it right now.
I’m quite sure that, once finished with work, I’ll be heading downtown to sketch and take photos. The day is just too nice to pass up. Plus, tomorrow is my day off, so I have no commitments I must be responsible towards.
How lovely, indeed. (:
What are your plans for this beautiful day?
I’ve lost a love,
& loved during a loss.
The pain of a story untold,
Unbearably cold and trite.
A Nightingale in the night,
Her mournful song portrays
Those who’ve relinquished their fears
Upon a storybook revelation.
The tearful girl, she ran away
The searing pain too ruthless for her tender heart.
The Nightingale, she sings again.
Mourning the loss of tender innocence and love.
How I love band finds.
I love their simplicity.
Just so you all know.. you may get a bit of film photography heading your way, depending on if I can spare the $5 it takes to develop it at good ol’ Freddy’s. Let’s hope. I’m excited to see them. (:
I’m feeling much better. I know God is always going to provide, no matter my state. As long as I keep Him in my heart and mind, I’ll always be safe.
I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to get the hell out of this town.
I need to travel. I need to feel out of control. I need to move to some distant place that I’ve never been, where no one knows me, and where I can just breathe and be by myself away from everything I know.
It sounds lovely.
So, what’s the plan, Stan? There is none. I’m going to leave it to God. When He decides it’s time, I’m going to pack my bags and go.
And write. Write all the time. And photograph. Photograph everything.
Listen, sweet love
To the terror of her heart
As you sweep in too close
Hopelessly she closes her eyes
Feeling the breath of a lover upon her lips
Her fear is relinquished, the damage is naught.
She’s fallen again, though to fight she ought.
Listen to this song. It’s so wondrous. I love new discoveries (: any one of you have any suggestions?
P.S. Poem located below video is my own.
Ever since I found out how to open the back of my AE-1 I’ve been taking photos as often as possible. I missed film so much. I cannot wait to see the outcome of these photos.
On top of that I’ve recently been accepted to 2 different part time positions and, as a result, am exhausted beyond belief. The good news is, though, due to the many hours spent riding Trimet, I’ve had more time to read. I recently finished “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”, which I adored (I love British humor.) I then began to read “Tarzan of the Apes”, which I’m three-quarters of the way through. I find it a tad peculiar, but I’m still enjoying it immensely. I’m so happy about being forced to take the time to read, otherwise I’d be awfully bored on those long bus rides to and from work.
