That they throw their work into the maw of existence and it means something, affects someone, leaves a trail, however faint, saying that someone came through here once, watching, thinking, feeling, saying something about what they saw.
Something that moves not only them in the creative act itself, but someone else in the reception of it. But as we know, they are varyingly successful in that quest, their great artistic works notwithstanding. But I tell you, it is one of the delights of this endeavor of mine that so many readers share works in turn that have moved them, and which are new to me. Thank you very much for this latest contribution!
Several years ago, I went back to Carlinville, the small town in southern Illinois where I was born and spent the first decade of my life. When I saw the town square, which was really round, it was much smaller than I imagined. The fences in the Little League diamond, which once seemed unreachable, were now just a mere poke away.
Perhaps even a half swing. It was just another reminder of my own mortality. However, I must admit those few days in April when we, the Moon Wagoneers, strolled along Venice not Italy or watched Dodgers how easy it was to pick up where we left off some 50 years ago. Of course, there were changes. After all, 70 is around the corner. We were all orphans. Some had siblings pass away. There were grandchildren more for me than anyone else.
Less hair I won that category, too. We seemed to know what day of the week it was by our 7 day release pill box. Despite it all, what remained the same was the single most important thing of all: friendship As I think about time and its passage, I recall this wonderful little poem written by the photographer Gordon Parks.
After many snows I was home again, Time had whittled down to mere hills the great mountains of my childhood. Raging rivers I once swam trickled now like gentle streams and the wide road curving on to China, Kansas City or perhaps Calcutta had withered to a crooked path of dust, ending abruptly at the county burial ground. Only the giant that was my father remained the same. A hundred strong men strained beneath his coffin when they bore him to his grave.
That looking back at how one thought things were and how they actually are upon further reflection and inspection is a most interesting flipside to this discussion, Robert. Worthy of another reflection, which I am very glad you offered up here not only from yourself, but from Mr. Parks as well. Again, a piece I had never seen before, such riches, oh my….
Thank you for this! Today I have things to do. An efficient to do list lays in the passenger seat. While planning my day I come upon two cars stopped side by side. Both drivers arms waving in joyful conversation. Intermittent glances back at me reveal smiling faces. I wait. At first impatiently. With one question on my mind.
He taught me the magic of the prioritized to do list. So I sit, exercizing my patience routine. Be here now. Live in the Now. Ahhhh Haaaaa!! Not the past, not the future. Right now they are talking. Being friendly, expressing love. Perspective and choice, eh, Kirk? Why can we be King Mellow one day and indulge a Jack Nicholson-style tirade the next, in similar circumstances? Turns out denial is not an island off Egypt… Thanks for this I think…. Larkin said this while at the same time he was a nihilist.
How can he possibly preserve when he doesnt believe in its existence. Capturing a moment in time, sacralizing it, if you will, whether through poetry, painting, photography, story. And expanding our vision and understanding of it and everything it points to. Home About. How slow they are! And how much time they waste, Refusing to make haste! Yet still they leave us holding wretched stalks Of disappointment, for, though nothing balks Each big approach, leaning with brasswork prinked, Each rope distinct,.
Right to the last. We think each one will heave to and unload All good into our lives, all we are owed For waiting so devoutly and so long. But we are wrong:. Only one ship is seeking us, a black- Sailed unfamiliar, towing at her back A huge and birdless silence.
In her wake No waters breed or break. Philip Larkin also has inserted some literary devices in this poem to enhance his writing. The analysis of the devices used in this poem is as follows. Poetic and literary devices are the same, but a few are used only in poetry.
