Dancing With Ghosts

.
.
Where is this place, so bitter cold, cold,
So burning hot, hot, this salty wasteland of empty, empty?
Where the greatest joy is found dancing with ghosts,
Dancing with ghosts, dancing with ghosts, wind, ghosts, ghosts…
Aiiiii
Exiled to this nowhere of wailing free winds,
Questing winds, ghosts, wind, wind asking for new words,
Singing the same ancient song, always the same, not new,
Not new, not new, not new, lowing not new, not new, not new …
Aiiiii
Oh home, I want to go home, to the welcome,
The love, the comfort, the harmony, to Mama, Mama,
I want to go home to the home, the home that cannot be,
Never was, never was, never come with me, come with me, with me…
Aiiiii
Where is this place, so bitter cold,
So burning hot, this salty wasteland of empty?
Where the greatest joy is found dancing with wind,
Dancing with ghosts, dancing with ghosts, with ghosts, with wind, alone…
Aiiiii
Oh joy! Oh happy! Dancing not new, not new, not new,
Dancing not new, dancing, dancing, flying with ghosts,
Blown on the salt watered free to a never was, never will be,
The empty never, only wind, wind, happy wild dancing, flying, dancing…
Aiiiii

Circling Round

.
.
She is circle-dancing
Round the wilderness
Mobius path an eternal
Circling endless freedom
.
Circling round
Circling round
.
Pacing wearing seasonal trails
Within the wooded world
Circumscribed danced fencing
Air and wind highways elsewhere
.
Circling round
Circling round
.
Enclosing tighter with more fear
Animal trails of habit rhythm
Round and round sacrificing
A little more a little more
.
Circling round
Circling round
.
Until all is gone but the wild
Shrieking silence round and round
Life gifted away dancing loss
Contained by fear too late
.
Circling round
circling round
.
To acknowledge circumambulate
The mad be knowing wasted
Leg lock traps poisoned bait
Back and forth no gate cage
.
Circling round
Circling round
.
Savage music mind song
Isolation refusal to just stop
Become tradition road-kill
Or your bag limit numbered tag
.
Circling round
Circling round
.
Wild elusive dancing alone
In night she is not contained
Unseen and unrecognized
She knows the poisoned bait
.
Circling round
Circling round
.
Sidestepping the traps and snares
Dancing leaping singing
Wild and hopeless and free
Wild and hopeless and free
.
Circling round
Circling round
.

The Garden Gate

.
.
Indifference has sent me here, beyond your reach,
Dwelling in a dream seeded hopeless nowhere,
Alone, I once tended my garden of flowering despair.
.
Walls and fences have been constructed faithfully,
No unknown paths, nor secret gates allow you too near,
I’m guarded by your unrepentant, ignorant, manly fear.
.
Duty and honor, you call your determined labor,
Unaware that behind walls of your illusion I live, not happy, but free.
Now my wild garden goes unattended, no longer can you touch me.
.

BELOVED

—————————————————————————————–

This is movie based on the book, BELOVED, by Toni Morrison.

Of course the book is excellent and has insightful depths that film cannot achieve,

but film is also an excellent medium and adds dimensions that books cannot contain.

What is real and what is not real?  THAT WHICH IS BELOVED IS REAL.     Bear

WHEN FREEDOM IS AS BELOVED AS THE BELOVED ….                               Bear

——————————————————————————————-

BELOVED  — trailer

BELOVED   —  harpo films   —    rated R

This movie does have nudity and violence. It is about 2 hrs and 45 minutes long.

This You Tube version seems to be complete, or very well edited, though it is not as high quality

as a DVD or rental streaming or a theatre version.  There may be small bits missing as while I

“watched” I also did other things, not always in the same room.  If you have an opportunity

to watch this movie with good quality, I do recommend doing so.

Some questions to ponder while watching, or reading the book,  might be:

What is Love?

What is Reality?

What is Truth?

What do we hold as Beloved?

What is the cost of Freedom?

What is Important?

What is Understanding?

What is Compassion?

Who can be Trusted? What can be trusted?

Are all people really People?

A Gypsy family travels the French roads during the Second World War, followed by Little Claude, a young boy seeking a new family after his parents “left and never returned”. Upon reaching a town where they traditionally stop for a few months and work in vineyards, aviey learn that a new law forbids them from being nomadic. Theodore, the town’s mayor, and Miss Lundi, the schoolteacher, protect and help the Gypsies. Despite this, They are arrested and placed in an internment camp. Theodore manages to rescue them and gives them a piece of property where they must settle. But the Gypsies’ deeply ingrained thirst for freedom makes this sedentary lifestyle difficult to bear. After Theodore and Miss Lundi are arrested for resistance, the Gypsies decide they must get back on the move in order to remain free
