Qu’Appelle

Who is calling

Who

‘Twas the Universe

The Source

No one believed you

I saw the red orb, too

And so I eschew a world

Distracted by faerie glamour

Capitalism, war and self

The world that killed you

With their pale reality

Forced your hand

A hand they dealt

My Beautiful Dreamer

Too beautiful for them

Your ness thrives

In my purple heart

Through Time and Space

Energy never dies

You told me so yourself

We will meet again

My Wild Thing

My Giant

My Liege

Hamlet Act 3 scene 1

To be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to, ’tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;
To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there’s the rub;
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause: there’s the respect
That makes calamity of so long life;
For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
The oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,
The pangs of despised love, the law’s delay,
The insolence of office and the spurns
That patient merit of the unworthy takes,
When he himself might his quietus make
With a bare bodkin? who would fardels bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
But that the dread of something after death,
The undiscover’d country from whose bourn
No traveller returns, puzzles the will
And makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all;
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought,
And enterprises of great pith and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry,
And lose the name of action. – Soft you now!
The fair Ophelia! Nymph, in thy Orisons
Be all my sins remember’d.

~ Bill Shakespeare

The Dream

Surrounded by death,

Agony, despair

Ineffective apothecaries

Only

Procuring dark side-effects

A Prisoner in my body

Full-blown mutiny

How could I do this

To me

Sleep ever elusive

Unobtainable dreams

Seeming eternity

Wait

I see

The Land of Nod

On the horizon

Beckoning me

Finally

Slide through the ether

Sigh

Find myself there

Technicolour dream

I’ve been jonesing for you

Yeah, you

Open Sesame

But, more bucolic, serene

The grass was emerald

The wide, open sky

Azure

Wisps here and there

The perfect temperature

Starlight, star bright

Gasp

Permeates the air

From where

I cannot say

It doesn’t matter

It feels real

That’s all I know

All I care to say

I begin to skip

Dance

Spinning joy

Through Green

Rolling tenderly

Reach up

Touch the Blue

Forget hurt

Think of you

What is pain

Sigh

Free

At last

And then…

I’m back

Again

❤❤❤

Dreaming is one of the grooviest, coolest things in life. It’s like Time Travel, or something? An out of body experience? It’s a spontaneous, wonderful place to visit. I quite like it.

Always ❤ed the song. Now? It’s my dream, baby.

❤❤❤

The Song

In Dreams, Groovy, Joni Mitchell, Music, Nazareth, Rock on August 17, 2012 at 4:41 pm

This Flight Tonight was written by the sublimely versatile Joni Mitchell and appears on her album Blue. Nazareth‘s cover is one of the best Rock tunes of all Time and Space, cats and kittens. I’m not messing around here, baby. To say it’s a personal favourite just doesn’t seem adequate.

Hope you really, really dig it!

❤❤❤
