GRAVITY OF STEMS

by Denny Marshall


Today
Blue sprinkles fall
Raindrops bounce off green leaves
A flower imagines a UFO

Later that night
While bees sleep
The wind ships its pollen
With a dream of stars

Next morning
Stretches its fingers
Toward celestial sky
Like many suns before









PRIVATE CELEBRATION

by Denny Marshall


Sometime before Halloween
The season's dance
Another song of rise and fall
The age circles wiser

Full moon reflect
Moving shadows on roof
Clouds move like show curtain (glide)
Hide the celebration

Upper wind conductors
Allow brief encores
Same distant star
Will return next year

Fades to whispers
Then gone
When we arise









ULTRASOUND

by Emily Bilman


As the echo-graph slides on my skin
Tautened by new life, I think of the poet's

Insight that the child is father to man.
On the chiaroscuro screen, I see my baby's

Body oscillate like a kelp forest through oceanic
Currents carrying plankton to the sea-depths.

The symmetry of his heartbeat recurs
In my poem's rhythm like an undertow

Oxygenising the depths. As I hear the symmetry
Of his heartbeat, I visualize dolphins

And whales echolocating as if the sound
Of poetry could resonate in the sea-depths.









POEM FOR FAULKNER'S "MISS EMILY"

by Teresa McLamb Blackmon


She is the monument covered in rust, hair as gray
as Confederate swords and voice as sharp.
Over in the corner of some museum, dark and dank
as basement ground, she warms her baby,
her suckling, her first-born.
Its feet are warm to carpet and carriages.
Bundled in hunger, its wails hover like ghosts.
She feeds it in cups of tradition, empty and barren as steel -
a surrogate tea that poisons crib and cradle
and rocks the past to dust.









7TH GRADE

by Teresa McLamb Blackmon


We all have first loves, puppy love
that may be silly but real to the puppy.
I was no different, sure in the 7th grade
that my life would depend on a kiss
from the lips of my first boyfriend.
And it did.
Like an unexpected snowfall:
there is bare, cold ground,
clouds pout, waiting,
and suddenly, at dawn,
everything is different, silent, pure
covered by tiny white fingers,
turned into something it had never been before.









PASSAGE

by Joseph A. Farina


boy and girl
sitting
under a maple
golden in the sun
holding hands
create their moment
as i drive by
remembering my own

enveloped in the amber glow
of autumn light
the sun now low
against a changing sky
they illustrate
the perfect state
of love beginning
love unspent

i sigh
and leave
their moment holding
them as one
against the yellow
and the red
of a setting autumn sun

this dream is theirs
and not for us
except to feel
just one more time
the union of first love
and sky...










VEDETTE POÈTE: GERARD MANLEY HOPKINS

THE STARLIGHT NIGHT

by

Gerard Manley Hopkins



LOOK at the stars! look, look up at the skies!
O' look at all the fire-folk sitting in the air!
The bright boroughs, the circle-citadels there!
Down in dim woods the diamond delves! the elves'-eyes!
The grey lawns cold where gold, where quick gold lies!
  Wind-beat whitebeam! airy abeles set on a flare!
  Flake-doves sent floating forth at a farmyard scare!-
Ah well! it is all a purchase, all is a prize.
Buy then! bid then!-What?-Prayer, patience, aims, vows.
Look, look: a May-mess, like on orchard boughs!
  Look! March-bloom, like on mealed-with-yellow sallows!
These are indeed the barn; withindoors house
The shocks. This piece-bright paling shuts the spouse
  Christ home, Christ and his mother and all his hallows.

"Can you hear the drums Fernando
I remember long ago another starry night like this . . ."
- Fernando by ABBA


The Uplands: The Book of the Courel (un extrait) est une œuvre poétique emblématique du poète Espagnol Uxio Novoneyra, écrit au début de l'ère post-moderniste, ce Chapbook est comme une part d'un très gros gâteau, avec un introduction de Anton Lopo, traduite par Erin Mouré et publiée par la presse aérienne. Uxio Novoneyra Uxio Novoneyra (renommé poète Galicien, écrivain de contes pour enfants, journaliste) a étudié la littérature et la philosophie et a travaillé à la télévision et radio à Madrid. Dans son introduction, Anton Lopo décrit les années du poète de 1952 à 1961, lorsqu'il a été frappé de pleurésie maladie douloureuse des poumons) et vit dans les montagnes de Courel en Galice avec la poète Maria Marino. Il peut avoir été en grande partie lié à son lit. Pendant ce temps, il a écrit The Uplands: The Book of the Courel qui a été publié dans 1955 de Galaxia, l’histoire de la façon dont les pages d’imprimés mécaniques ont été déchirées pour être corrigées par Novoneyra jusqu’à la l'éditeur, Pineiro, a mis son pied pour que le livre puisse être publié. L’introduction présente le poète et son la vie et les époques, en donnant le contexte à l'extrait.

Novoneyra dans son introduction à The Uplands: The Book of the Courel écrit: "la possibilité de l'éphiphanie et que première promesse de l'oiseau de nuit: faire des chants non encore chantés dans la forêt "annonce la beauté de ce qui est à venir. Cette oeuvre est une célébration du paysage des montagnes de Galice, c’est comme si le poème était en mouvement constant, poète, seul voyageur, se promenant à cheval ou à cheval dans les sentiers, les vignobles, évoquant les montagnes et ciel, les forêts et les créatures de la terre, altérée par ses poumons acides, obligée d’écrire de son lit, en état de nostalgie. La connexion profonde du poète à la terre est une célébration du lieu, chaque mot considéré, chaque mot, un profond partie intégrante du rapport du poète au paysage, une prière. Dans la poésie, il y a l'idée du silence, un grand silence, peut-être né du temps seul, un homme seul dans le paysage devant Dieu.

Ce travail est un genre de l’imagisme et est influencé par les Beat Poets de l’époque. Une répétition de noms de lieux crée un battre dans le panorama. Cette poésie est libre et ne rime pas, sauf accidentellement. Les hautes terres: le livre de la Courel est une maîtrise de la langue écrite, un zen d'exécution poétique. Cet écrivain se demande comment l'original Espagnol sonnerait contre l'oreille.

Une histoire fantastique et une présentation du célèbre poète Espagnol Uxio Novoneyra, The Uplands: The Book of the Courel (extrait) fait ses débuts sous une forme Anglaise, animée par Erin Mouré et Anton Lopo, un brillant écrire.

"I've been sleeping Barely dreaming . . ." - Burning Man by Maggie Rogers


seam est un long poème, qui explore les images de feu et de terre dans la nouvelle langue, un excellent voyage dans l'art de poétique à la Nouvelle Renaissance d'Âge Republique de Poésie de Monty Reid et above/ground press. Monty Reid (le poète, l'ouvrier de Musée, le rédacteur de poésie, l'organisateur de festival de poésie) est né en Saskatchewan et vit maintenant et travaux à Ottawa. Il a été nommé pour le Prix du Gouverneur-général trois fois, il était le rédacteur de poésie à Arc Le Magazine de poésie et dirige actuellement VerseFest, un festival de poésie d'Ottawa. Il a écrit beaucoup de collections de poésie, en incluant Karst Means Stone (NeWest), Garden (Chaudiere), Meditatio Placentae (Brick) et Chapbooks. C'est son cinquième Chapbook publié à above/ground press.

Ce poème dit une histoire, comme un voyage dans les images d'une couture à charbon brûlante juxtaposée comme une liaison ratée. C'est comme s'il est dans un champ en regardant le charbon brûlant, l'observation, la description et le fait de déplorer au ciel pour la souffrance.

La langue est pleine et est ronde dans la métaphore de damnation, une exploration de commencements mis fin, l'enfer de manquer a amant dans la chaleur, le feu et le brûlage. Peut-être il y a un argument subtil d'accusation, un amant manque et non la souffrance, "À la lézarde de la gorge, une langue brûlée, mais ce n'est pas vous." Reid décrit la profanation sexuelle, étant dans le rapport intime sans consentement, finissant sans consentement, profondément souffrance, le monde comme une prostituée, attrapée dans brûlage.

THE HOLY SPIRIT WAY FOR ARTISTS


(a book in serials)

by

Rebecca Anne Banks



SURVIVAL


Often when young, people have an idea of what they want to do for career. Often there may be naysayers people who say you can't be an Artist. Your path may twist and turn but if you have a true calling to do something you will usually end up doing it. Sometimes other people's attitudes are different, they are different psychological types, they may have hidden agendas and/or are jealous and they may not understand that being an Artist is a legitimate calling.

It helps to take an aptitude test and see which umbrella of jobs you belong in. The umbrella of Artist, psychologist, economist, marketer, librarian, teacher, politician, chef is quite gifted and may excel at multiple disciplines. Public service people/accountants and lawyers may also have a successful Arts calling. The way of the Artist is a natural one, that can help you integrate negative life occurrences, grief, loss of a lover into a place of healing. And can be a place of pure celebration.

How to survive financially?

Education costs can be defrayed through student loans, bursaries and grants. It is also possible to be self-educated over the Internet. For self-education on the Internet it helps to find or create a reading list of the most important contributions to your field of interest, perhaps gleaning from course descriptions at universities. And go from generalist writings, like Wikipedia or a compendium overview of art/writing history and narrow in on the major writers/artists determining the genres/artists you are captivated by.

It is possible to be educated in a related field for your psychological type and find work in that field that will sustain you as you develop your skill set and follow your calling for Art. If you can work part-time and follow your calling for Art, you may be able to keep the bills paid. It may also help to have a spouse who supports you in your Arts calling. In the morphing economy to the Computerized Economy, as the changing business models are creating new job types, it may be possible to work your way onto the Internet, offering a storefront and/or business services as an entrepreneur. It may also be possible to go "Off the Grid" practising your art full-time and living inexpensively.

It is very inexpensive to have an Internet presence, joining social media sites, Facebook, Twitter, Google, LinkedIn, Hotmail email and sites related to your type of art for selling and ads. (e.g. for selling music, CD Baby, Spotify and a host of servers . . . for selling art, Etsy . . . for publishing books CreateSpace, Amazon, LuLu, and Ingram's and more). It is possible to get a list of distributors from an Internet search. It is possible to be supported in your Arts calling by appealing for donations, Patreon is a great platform as well as GoFundMe campaigns.

It is also possible to have your own WebSite for a base price of creating the WebSite for about $100, WebHosting from about $7 per month and the purchase of a Domain Name for $20 yearly. It is possible to be paid for your work over the Internet using an Electronic Funds Transfer through the bank or by using PayPal. In my experience PayPal is a reliable financial instrument. It is important to have a golden business reputation, in my experience it can take about 5 years for the business to be grounded. If one must be on welfare, it is important to give back to the Community in some way. Even if it is offering your art up on the Internet for free or inexpensively.

Surviving and having the basics of food and shelter, the bills paid, does not have to be difficult. To keep shelter costs down, friends can get together and share an apartment. Also, there are low cost housing arrangements from the government in most major cities. You can apply for a low-cost apartment (rent geared to income, usually ¼ of your take home pay) you just need to get on the waiting list, it may take years (in my experience 5 to 7 years) but it will come through eventually. There are also public sector and private sector coops, where the tenants help run the housing initiative for reduced rent. High rent price can be an issue especially for people living alone, in my experience the rental market is inflated, it has been my highest bill, perhaps a regulated rental market could keep rent prices down. Someone once idealized that rent should only be ¼ of your take home pay.

You should never have to go hungry. There are flyers from the grocery stores in your area, with weekly food sales. There are soup kitchens, Food Banks, shelters where you can have a meal or pick up free food. All these services can be located in your city over the Internet. In the area where I live there is a Summer market newly open with fruits and vegetables locally grown for pay what you can.

Also, it is possible to network locally and over the Internet for the best price for anything you need, household items, personal items, clothes, Art supplies. The second-hand market on Craigslist, Kijiji, eBay is flowing with good discounted household items. Dollarama and Dollar stores are great for personal items, office supplies, writing and art supplies. Also places like Value Village, The Salvation Army and Thrift stores are good for household items, furniture and second-hand clothes. It is also possible to pick up first run clothes over the Internet for not too much monies. Because there are so many producers on the Internet, there is competition for the best price. If you shop locally first you may defray shipping costs and are keeping the physical storefront in the societal structure.

How to survive emotionally?

"I tried to commit suicide by sticking my head in an oven but there was a cake in it."
- Lesley Boone (Actress)

"If I had not been already been meditating, I would certainly have had to start. I've treated my own depression for many years with exercise and meditation, and I've found that to be a tremendous help."
- Judy Collins (Singer/Songwriter/Musician)

"If they could put happy love life in a bottle it would sell a million."
- Rebecca Banks (Poet, Singer, Songwriter, Musician, Writer, Artist, Philosopher, Counselor)


How to cure depression from having too many lovers or when a lover leaves you and suicide prevention . . .

Sex with too many lovers, sexual defilement, sex in serial relationships, sexual abuse, rape and the break-up of a marriage can cause sexual violation issues and negative karma which can lead to anger issues and depression. A sexual/love relationship that breaks is like soul murder, it leaves darkness on the soul. If you have sexual violation issues there are many things you can do to feel better and create a better mood (positive affect), your love life need not be permanently ruined.

There are certain rules of karma around a sexual relationship, sex is the sacred physical union of a man and woman in which it is possible to be touched by the Holy Spirit, as if experiencing Heaven on earth. The woman's hymen is a physical sign of a spiritual covenant - I suspect in the Agricultural economy the first marriage, perhaps to your Starcrossed Lover, was meant to last for your entire life. (However, this may not be possible with the unofficial rules of love lives/the economy in modern times - in my experience the vast majority of people, currently, do not marry their first lover but marry their Starcrossed or more suited Lover as their second lover). Sexually defiling each other, anal sex, possibly oral sex, possibly physical manipulation of genitals by someone else could be karmically negative and cause you to lose respect for each other making the relationship break. After having sex with 5 different lovers or sex with one same sex lover (heard from the street) there is a visualization from the Holy Spirit that you are karmically impure, I suspect this may make it difficult for a future sexual relationship to work in the long-term but not impossible. There are white culture rules about being karmically impure (ask telepathically). In my observation it may be possible to be in a committed intimate relationship when karmically impure but there may be suffering that translates as arguing or silence, it helps if one of you is karmically pure, both of you are very well suited to each other and are committed to staying together. It also helps that you deal with your angst that the relationship may end by prayer, release work and journaling, and following an arts calling or special calling for work and not taking out your suffering on your partner.

It takes about 20 years of following your calling for work/an arts calling to find karmic redemption and then I suspect it is possible to have a peaceful love life in covenant if you can find a suitable partner on a SignfromGod. Women are the font which needs to be filled regularly in covenant and love making to keep good karma and positive affect (no depression, a good mood). Women need to be protected in relationship in a well-suited covenant relationship or married to their Starcrossed Lover or more suited Lover. This means they need to have a good working relationship with their man and need to have sex regularly. It is a good idea to talk about family planning and use birth control. In uncertain times, it is always good to know what you are doing in relationship, if you do not have an insured income or are being cursed and in serial relationships it is always good to make informed decisions about having children. It is not fair to bring children into very conflicted situations. Every child a wanted child, well looked after and socialized with love.

The cult of ego in the West should not exist. It is not alright to square off on someone, everyone has a Starcrossed Lover or a more suited Lover on a SignfromGod. People should not have to marry someone they are not suited for without a SignfromGod just because someone else says so. Marriage is a sacrament, it is meant to be happy without an essence problem. These arguments over bed rites are never meant to happen, they are against God and the Holy Spirit way. People were not meant to suffer in their time on earth they were meant to be in a happy dance with their Starcrossed or more suited Lover.

Men and women may understand sex differently - for a man it may be like a handshake, they can roll over and they just had physical exercise, yet for most women it is like finding the enchanted garden and being home and to be without this special love relationship is like being in oblivion. In my experience about half of all men can have serial sexual relationships and not suffer too much, while it is only about 5% of all women who can "jump" successfully. And I suspect even those who are able to have serial intimate relationships at first, it may wear thin after awhile.

Sexual violation issues can lead to anger and depression and/or artist's rote: fighting anger and acting in (suicide) or acting out and becoming violent. Even people who are able to have serial sexual relationships and not suffer too greatly (I suspect a minority of people), it can really begin to take a toll after awhile, with drug and alcohol abuse, becoming mental patients or in the prison house. If you have had too many lovers, take up an arts calling or a special calling for work, over time you will become karmically pure again. It should then be possible to marry in a karmically pure relationship. It is still possible to have lovers up until this time, but you can become very sexually wounded, suffering from too much sorrow and anger/depression, it may be difficult to keep work, people sometimes suicide or become violent and abuse alcohol and drugs.

How to deal with sexual violation issues:

- ask yourself what you need and give it to yourself.

- go to bed and sleep for 3 or 4 days or for 6 months or for however long it takes (with just minimum maintenance, going to the bathroom and taking some food) until you start to feel better, sleep is very healing.

- release work: blow the anger off by doing physical exercise (or beating out pillows with a bat or with your fists) and deep breathing. (it also helps to pray for God to take the anger away from you as you do this).

- turn up the radio and scream as you do physical exercise and deep breathing (it is a good idea to let people know that this is therapy, so they do not call 911). (and also pray that God take the anger away.)

- in-depth conversation/therapy with someone you love who will not scapegoat you or with a Deep Process Worker (when in therapy with a good Deep Process Worker it is possible to have hugs and organic Pot-Luck Dinners).

- get a hug.

- get the endorphins going: rub the inside of your right hand, eat sugar or carbohydrates (anything that turns to sugar when it hits the bloodstream) (this may not be very healthy but in a crisis situation can take the edge off).

- eat the magic foods: chocolate or meat/fish or ice cream or any food you have a yen for.

- get a blood test, you may have nutritional deficiencies (such as low iron in the blood) that can be corrected with a vitamin, supplement or just by adding a particular food with that element to your diet and this in turn can make your physical health better which can make your emotional health better.

- drink herbal tea remedies for depression - particularly good is lavender tea.

- do meditation/yoga and deep breathing.

- take a long walk.

- prayer - talk to God; get someone to do the Pining Prayer (not your ex-lover if you hope to get back with them) or the Healing Prayer through the walls (ask questions telepathically). there are various prayers for healing.

- ask your friends and family to pray for you.

- give a donation at a church and ask the church people to pray for you. if you are very conflicted emotionally with a lot of bad karma from sleeping around and maybe cursing get an exorcism from the Catholic Church.

- pray for the ancestors. make a sojourn to visit the graves of those that have passed in your family, or famous icons you admire. Say prayers and leave flowers/gifts by their graves.

- celebrate all Holidays. even if it is just to have some special food and say a prayer. perhaps get together with friends/family. you should probably not work on Sunday.

- get a massage.

- take a hot bath or get to the whirlpool/Hot Springs.

- go to the Spa or make an at-home pedicure/facial.

- if you are really steaming, hot and burning from the bad karma from the sexual violation/violence take a cold shower or a cold bath. (usually after 2 weeks to a month after the sexual assault and when needed).

- do journaling/writing.

- write a gratitude journal, giving thanks for the good things in your life.

- read and practice daily affirmations. (like a horoscope).

- immerse yourself in a reading list. read all your favourite poetry, novels, comics.

- practice your calling for the arts and make some big, beautiful art.

- look at your favourite art - go to your local Museum/Art Gallery or browse the Internet.

- "colour therapy" - look at your favourite colours (maybe repaint the living space or get some new clothes in your favourite colours).

- listen to and sing your favourite music or write a song.

- look at your favourite flowers (take up growing orchids or your favourite flower).

- be around healing nature, bodies of water and trees are very healing. go for a walk in the woods.

- watch fireworks. very uplifting when in season.

- laugh - read the comics, watch comedians and/or tell jokes.

- sit under a sunlight/heat lamp bulb (you can get them at the hardware store for under $10) - this is especially good in winter when natural light levels are low.

- hold and pet a dog or cat (or look at pictures of your favourite pets on the Internet).

- get a new perspective: do some goal setting, take up a new project or past-time something you can get excited about. Figure out your Mission from God (sometimes revealed in dreams) and follow your calling for work (take an aptitude test) and love.

- have no enemies - do not trespass against God or the Community, live in a curse free zone. If a relationship is stressed, make amends and do some consciousness raising, make peace, however if the relationship is emotionally or physically violent it may be better to walk away, at least think good thoughts to them and make peace telepathically and in prayer. Thinking positive thoughts, saying positive words, doing positive works will create good karma which will create positive affect and make you feel better, creating healing synergies.

- do good works (perhaps do volunteer work), follow your callings from God, contribute to the Community. Be an information font (there are rules about this, so ask telepathically).

- mend your love life in happy covenant.

These suggestions are all natural/inexpensive ways to heal the depression and anger of sexual violation after having had too many lovers. Sometimes people use drugs and alcohol to feel better but after the initial high they are usually depressed the next day which adds to their emotional pain (however, it may be helpful in moderation to take the edge off.) It may help to sleep through the lows. If you have tried everything and are still in a really bad way you may consider seeing a psychiatrist and getting some medication. Time heals all wounds, it may take years of Deep Process Work, taking good care of yourself, prayer and possibly being celibate but it is possible to regain your mental health and a new perspective. It also helps healing to not trespass against the Holy Spirit or the Community, don't hurt each other and have positive thoughts, words and actions creating good karma and healing synergies which will make you feel better. It is even possible to heal in intimate relationship, but it is important that the marriage be very well-suited and in covenant, so you are not sexually wounded again through a break up.

The use of Drugs and Alcohol in the Artist's Rote.

Is the use of drugs and alcohol necessary to the Artist's process? Usually it is a survival strategy if your love life is very conflicted, can take the edge off depression, void and angst in moderation and may prevent suicide. In my opinion, most people/Artists need a happy working love life, usually a longterm happy marriage to help avoid the hell of addictions. With alcohol the positive affect is temporary and the next day can be more depression, it may help to sleep through the depression.

I would suggest only using alcohol and soft organic drugs in moderation. (e.g. cannabis). In my observation hard synthetic drugs, heroin and crack amongst others can be hazardous for your health over long-term becoming addictive. Sometimes over prolonged use combined with a conflicted love life/bad situation may contribute to violent actions and suicide.

The use of natural LSD in the form of Peyote and/or magic mushrooms in the writings of Carlos Castaneda present insight into Yaqui (Mexican Indigenous peoples) traditions of mysticism. These books were supposed to be based in research and earned Castaneda a Ph.D. in Anthropology, however his writings were later called down and denounced as fiction. Maybe use Peyote/magic mushrooms once to contribute to opening of psychic spheres, altered perceptions, an opening of the subconscious, perhaps contributing to creativity. I have never done this but may have had one brush with LSD in my travels. New information on the Internet says magic mushrooms are a way to manage depression when you have multiple lovers.

I would not use hard drugs regularly, if your perceptions become too stressed it may lead to altered perceptions of reality that could contribute to violence and suicide. The newspapers are full of reports of violence fuelled by addictions and many Artists have succumbed to suicide. The brain is a delicate thing, and no one wants to spend their life in the hell of addictions and/or possibly jail.
