Iceberg revisited...


The colour of nothing,
Blue is heaven's emptiness,
the unquenchable thirst I drown in.

White the breath that gives me life,
virgin clouds of whole spectrum.

Water frozen is life trapped,
Blue and White.
But, tear by tear, my salt melts
polar time and space,
thawing a sweetness I taste upon my lips.

Alone I am Blue.
Together we are all White.

oh you're gonna love the late derek jarman's film and radio play BLUE. Better as a radio tho as the film is just a blue screen with a soundtrack all the way through. Harrowing but engrossing account of jarman's battle with AIDS. Kaleidoscopic, well, shades of blue........thinks of buying a new pair of shoes at one point lying in his hopsital bed, but decides the ones he has are sufficent to 'walk him out of life'. Can't get AIDS help in one London district, but the nurse says to him, 'You might try district X, they have a theatre!' How ignorant is that! But your Nordic blue seems more life-affirming, Kate!

Water frozen is life trapped,

Quite profound, Kate - and this is quite a poem.

the frozen spectrum is embued with the color of history and affects our tonal essence ... as we thaw it gives way to sweet salt of being and the oneness of perspective found in its flow ...

your getting this polar metaphor down to perfection ...

I think I'm twisting this, but I like it so... I see us trapped here in the frozen white places of earth while thirsting for the blue heavenly realms. Splendid write Kate!;-) Happy Easter!

Sad the polar caps are not suffering from global warming. But yanky boiling. Bush thought he went to a coyote meeting, till he was told Kyoto.
Hey whats that cheney...

Notice Bush never talks when Cheney is drinking a glass of water....

I am intrigued!
