Updated on February 3, 2012

Cosmic tremble

Ever gentle

Won’t disturb

But one word.

Yet on this level

Earthquakes shake

Distant planets

For one self’s sake.

What was said,

With what intent

To what effect

Was who’s will bent?

Human receptor

Waits to hear

Light transformed

To errant message.

To one who’s clear

There’s no question

Where’s the source

That fills this vessel.

      Frozen sparrow spirals

      Wings bound

      Freefall the last

      Well, at least I can believe in you. :heart:

      I'm in something of a cynical phase at the moment. Perhaps if you write us all a frozen sparrow haiku it would be a drop in the bucket of restoring my faith in human beings again.

      Of course, knowing human beings, THAT might be doing me a disservice in the long run.

      Haha, I wasn't kidding about the cynical phase. :p

      Believe me, dear, even in my most commercial spaces, there beats the heart of a sparrow.

      As far as Chávez, I criticized him not because of his social populism, but because of his totalitarian tendencies... He undid himself.

      Yes, may avian values prevail ;-)

      I had rather hoped I could count on you~ ((Guru-C))

      Save the Frozen Sparrow! Up the Revolution!

      You were right about Chavez, though, by the way. Power corrupted, but I still think he started out with great dreams. Dammit, can't anyone come along an idealist can believe in anymore. :(

      Oh Darling Iðunn, thank you so very much for returning, my sister child of the sixties. Your presence feels like the soul returning. I cherish the days of the Glorious Frozen Sparrow Revolution. Oh, the capitalists. Yes, sometimes it's sell, sell, sell, when in fact, everyone is working to one day to have the time to sit with a fishing pole on a lake. It's commerce, not art, that's the slave. I would love to save the sparrows with you. Love, C.

      write more poetry, guru-c. you are slacking and by doing so, you are depriving the masses. don't you still love the masses?? :(

      write poetry, friend. I always enjoy reading it. :)

      What do you say, friend. Can we bring back the days of the Glorious Frozen Sparrow Revolution or have the capitalists too much of an upper hand already. You in?
