kiota and that good night: a birth day

Neither went gently. Aged nineteen and thirty-nine; and, no age at all, and all of them.

"Do not go gentle into that good night:
Rage, rage against the dying of the light."

She wrote a study based on these lines by Thomas. Same good night, quite different raging on the pathways across. Half a century apart. A moment apart.

A moment together. As ours with her. Time stretches and warps, dances and collapses.
Expands in a forever-hug.

You can read the study over on her DeviantArt blog, in her Gallery. Appropriate there, because her scarred words burst with graphic images. Thomas' drugs were alcohol. Hers were practically everything else. Both at times: drunk on words.

"Let yourselves mourn. But let yourselves get over it, too." She wants us to listen as well as love.

Both of them looked forward and they still do. They traveled away from all this their pain.

when i feel alone
i reach for you and your bring me home.
so shall i wrap in your cloak, and you in my hood,
and so shall you never be far
nor lone
again.

merry meet, and merry part, and merry meet again.

Blessings Be.

i can't say exactly why, but i am reminded of Kahlil Gibran at the moment and thought i should leave his words for you...

"But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully."

*hugs* from the Empress

This is very special, Eda Empress. So are your hugs, which I'm *reflecting back to you* right now!

I'm feeling an ocean of peace and being held lovingly in many ways right now ---- and it's going to start today and last endlessly.

I have Gibran's bestseller "The Prophet" which is from 1922, I think, and never been out of print.

Can I make an entry in my personal LJ from this without identifying you?

blessings be.

you certainly may... and you can not identify me all you want (or identify me - either are fine fine fine).
The Prophet is such an amazing thing isn't it? so bare. in my darkest days (and these days now) it is what i aspire to.

in eternal bliss... eda.
