We are all spirits in the material world
I’ve always had a keen sense of sight. Whether I was looking into the distance or up close, my eyesight never failed me. Yet, I never truly appreciated this gift, even though my peers often pointed it out to me, along with doctors at medical check-ups. Sure, I was aware of it, except its importance just didn’t sink in.
And I dreamed of a bright golden light flashing across the heavens.
Be honest, when was the last time you cried? Or does this question make you feel uncomfortable? OK, shall I go first then? I cry at least once a week, usually more though.
I am one with you
Throughout the ages, there were many couples who experienced a deep sense of love. Take, for instance, Romeo & Juliet, Samson & Delilah, Tristan & Isolde and Tamar & Armand. I have described the love felt by the latter couple in De feeks van Montpézat. And although their story is set in the late nineteenth Century, it is very much a modern-day one. The other day, Tamar, the ‘feeks’ (English: Hag), inspired me in writing a pantoum. Here she speaks to Armand from a distance, by speaking from her heart.
Now and again I look back
On childhood days
Those tear filled moments
When words did not console me
