when your sweet music earns you punishment for mysterious crimes

Osiris song and
letters from the underworld


when for sweet music you earn
punishment for mysterious crimes

when the awful hand, cheating
ravishes the naked marrow
made vulnerable by love

when the world paralysed

seems to turn
....and turn

as the noble one begs for a mother's womb
and finds none...

know then
my friend
that we are created alone

to be born alone and to depart alone

know you that now
and before
before after
again
and now

men who have foresaken all games have died alone
forlorn
for having lived
for having loved

.......

oh love that consumes the loving man
oh love that makes vulnerable to the cheating hand
oh love answered with inexorable hate
oh love told and untold
oh thick warmth

oh father

oh floating fungus in the bubbling stream

forgive them

they dare not see

forgive them for they feel not what they do
and they feel not what they would not do



Mozart and Osiris

Really an awesome poem.

My comprehension is too low for this one. I keep raading it, but the anchor is cast to deep for me to fathom. Almost like a reflection of a poem or song that casts a long shadow in the mind but circles itself like a dog after its own tail. Not able to make a realistic comment. Just an observation from afar.

Orpheus was rent apart by the Maenads, at least symbolically & I suppose all gnosis maintains the relationship with the Beloved is indidual & individuated, good reading.

Thanks for arousing the senses with this Tarak! Brings to mind how little we really know.Most of us live our lives totally unaware of how to live.;-) Yet, we do some wonderful things along the way, imagine if we knew what we were doing;-)!
