is filled with the romance
and the existential exquisiteness of being.
Oh a warm day in February
and the air is moist
and though the sky is covered in gray clouds
and portends the rain they say will come
the wonderful even light
dampens the contrast
and brings a milky clarity to every color
still washed out from winter's hand
in the vividness of its hue.
I breath in deeply
and the feeling of infinity
and the cosmic root
dances behind my eyes
as the scent of earth and water
fills my imagination
and my instincts
with the awareness of agency
an endless menagerie
of invisible beings
carving out moments of demon laughter
in the joyous wind
the sacred earth
the holy fire
the living plants
the aether and the dreaming and the void.
I would turn to you
and overwhelmed with the magic of this
say I love you
and steal a kiss
but more howling than the cosmic wind
I realize I am alone
A poem by me.
Written on February 20, 2014.
Well. First of all. My user name is theyesalbum.
which is of course 'the Yes Album.'
Which is of course an album by the band Yes.
A very fine and awesome record by a really good band.
I am really into music.(More on what kinds of music below.) I am also really into art and I am an artist, and though I am really interested in lots of art both old and new and I work on making art all the time, my obsession with music is almost deeper than my obsession with art. I play a little music too, but I am a dilettante, when it comes to playing music.
I am the master of the run on sentence.
I think and write in poetic nuggets.
I think line breaks are an adequate substitute for punctuation.
I am something of a recluse these days.
I am the very model of a cartoon individual.
My animation's comical, unusual, and whimsical
I'm quite adept at funny gags, comedic theory I have read
From wicked puns, and stupid jokes, to anvils that drop on your head
I am the very model of a modern Major-General,
I've information vegetable, animal, and mineral,.......
Right now I am trying to paint as much as I can to get ready for a show in March.
I hate February.
I don't often (lately almost never) drink.
I can't stand to be around cigarette smoke.
I don't follow or care about any sports.
I am trying to exercise myself.
I am pretty liberal, though I have compassion
for the view points of conservatives
and may agree with some points there found
but I tend toward the ideas of group cooperation
over pure individualism, though I believe in the idea of well fostered and strong individualism as a means to better serve the group and vise versa. I may just be rambling at this point. I am sure I don't understand politics, or much of anything.
I am a sort of an atheist, agnostic, Taoist, shamanistic, I believe everything is real, skeptic, will hedge on a maybe, probably wishy washy, I don't know. But I think lots of people are jerks.
I don't really get the whole deal with tattoos.
I like KDHX and NPR. I will flip over to KSHE in my car if it's time for the daily dose of led zeppelin.
I am unreasonably obsessed with Doctor Who. Both the classic series and the new one.
I am not ambitious or career driven. But, I work a lot. full time job one part time job, and I work for my mom a lot helping assist with her care giver job.
I get instantly turned off by people who don't list what their sign is. ( I am not super into astrology, but, i like to know, and I am guessing if you don't list it then you are probably lacking in a sense of whimsy. I could never date someone who has no sense of whimsy.)
I am ambitious and career driven, if mad artist who makes a lot of art is a career. I have not actually sold a lot of art, a little, but not a lot.
I am hilarious.
I have a youtube account where I post music that I make. But i also just posted one of me talking and telling a few jokes. Here it is.
You can see some of my work on my flickr steam. Just Google 'pvzm'.
In a relationship I value the enjoyment of being together, and doing daily life together. cooking, cleaning, watching movies, listening to music or the radio while cooking and cleaning, spending quiet contemplative time together, hiking, exploring, eating out, whatever the wind of the day may bring, with the right person, it's all better together.
I have a serious fetish for black and brown hair.
