There was no sky
Above the day
Above the night
I learned to fly
.
Silent snow and mountains
All around
All around
All around
Silent snow and mountains
All around

Babies cry
Cougar screams
Mother dreams
.
Lemon thorns
Escape
Mother’s tight
Squeezed eyes
Sweet blossoming
Orange trees
Buried upside down
Frozen in the ground
Broken roots lash
Disguised as
Sleeping hands
Fear locks the door
.
There was no sky

Silent snow and mountains

HUNGER — Njalkemme — Music Themes

It was my turn to choose the Music Theme for this week. The theme is HUNGER.

I decided to limit myself a few longings that cannot be satisfied by ordinary means. Two questions I posed to myself:

What of HUNGER cannot be eased or satisfied by ordinary means?

What longings so ache within as to become HUNGER?

Maddie has chosen MEDITATION for next week.  “I’ll go with Meditation as next week’s theme. Seems appropriate as I’ll be in meditation for 2 days at the Gyokusenji Monastery in Sendai, prayer for world peace practice. Much Love♥”
_______________________________________
Who does not HUNGER for home, idealized in memory or through anticipation? Is a warm and secure sense of belonging, of being cared for and caring in return, that perhaps never existed, still HUNGERED for, as for sustenance when there is none?
MEHRNOUSH — Zaubersprueche — Faun
4MIN. 20SEC.

In einem dunklen Tal
lag jüngst ich träumend nieder,
da sah ich einen Strahl
von meiner Heimat wieder.

Auf morgenroter Au´
war Vaters Haus gelegen,
wie war der Himmel blau,
die Flur wie reich an Segen!

Wie war mein Heimatland
voll Gold und Rosenhelle!
Doch bald der Traum verschwandt,
Schmerz trat an seine Stelle.

Da irrt´ ich weit hinaus
ins öde Land voll Sehnen,
noch irr´ich, such´das Haus
und find´es nicht vor Tränen.

Who Hungers to fly with the eagles? To soar above the clouds, to be borne aloft, removed from small cares and troubles, free, flying on wings of light? Though we human beings cannot fly with feathers, we can fly with awareness and light.
FLY LIKE AN EAGLE — Gila  Antara
4min.  56sec.

Does the human spirit starve without illusion? Is the intense HUNGER for the ideal only a dream of illusions? Is hope an illusion? Can we act purely because it is right to do so, or is courage starved by the HUNGER for hope?
STARVATION — Illusions — Thomas Bergersen
4min. 27sec.

Is there a HUNGER for expression? Is it the HUNGER to have voice? Is the creative urge a means to express still other HUNGERS?
“…. I am the voice of your HUNGER and pain …”
I AM THE VOICE — Celtic Women — Alex Sharpe
3min. 13sec.

Does everyone HUNGER for love in the autumn, as the days wane and darkness lingers? Is love in autumn different from love in the other seasons of the year? Does each season of love have its own special expression? Is love never expressed, actually love? Or is it only HUNGER? IS all love expressed in the same manner?

Does everyone HUNGER for love through out all of the changing seasons of life? Are the fires of love a HUNGER that is banked in some seasons and burning in others?

In the autumn of life, is the HUNGER for lost loves and loves that never came to be, a Hunger that can never be soothed? In the autumn of life is it too late for a grand amour passionné? Does this HUNGER pass?

In the autumn of life there is an aching HUNGER for love that is just as intense in its anguishing loss as any youthful desires, yet unfulfilled.
AUTUMN LOVE –Thomas Bergersen
3min. 50sec.

I have been told that the HUNGER for power is the most insatiable of all addictive HUNGERS.
Not all entities that experience this HUNGER are human beings.

When all is HUNGER, when there is nothing but HUNGER, no food, no warmth, no love, no hope, what is left? Only starvation, there is only the HUNGER. Have you ever been close to starvation, so that all was the HUNGER?
