as the world ends, to enter the last note of its music

    Newer Older

    Some words for you and me, not because they are particularly appropriate but just because they make music for this image.

    Not to have………

    Not to have but to be.
    The black heart of the poppy,
    O to lie there as a seed.

    To become the beloved.
    As the world ends, to enter
    the last note of its music.

    I bit on a seed and it spoke on my tongue
    of day that shone already among stars
    in the water-mirror of low ground,

    Denise Levertov (1923 – 1997) from The Goddess

      There was a theatre director in TO, Ilse. He was dying and his final creative project was a film of his own simulated last hours & death, shot from his hospice bed. Called "The Last Supper", flowers & music played a significant role. Your beautiful macro flower & its title brought that extraordinary artistic endeavour back to mind. Thank you. Be well, angel lady & have a good evening. XXX
