lulu in ganga ma






lulu is taken from alight's flickr page, and the following william stafford poem as well, "climbing along the river".



willows never forget how it feels to be young

do you remember where you came from? gravel remembers
even the upper end of the river believes in the ocean

exactly at midnight yesterday sighs away

what i believe is, all animals have one soul
over the land they love they crisscross forever

I love it! Much better the way you present it, minus punctuation and line breaks.

...falling off the face of the earth...

do y'all know the neil young song of this title? from a couple years ago. the lyrics are from an amazing phone message that jim jarmusch left on neil's answering machine after neil's stroke.

...falling off the face of the earth...

Hi eeyore and everyone. I got sucked in to the black hole that they made in Switzerland today!

Actually, I got sucked in to my dissertation! Which is not as fun as getting sucked into Mysoru. But it still feels good. (Is that weird?)

Eeyore, miss you! More soon I hope? I hope you are so happy there.

love and sleepy owl,

xo

boodiba said...

I'm sorry you missed LD!!! She's awesome.

I love that you keep having exactly 9 seconds online. We should all blog in that time-increment.

In Mysoru the present moment is exactly 9 seconds long!

Jai Lulu, Jai Eeyore,

susananda said...

How they roll? Fun, fun :)

dad, we should trade snoopy in for lulu. haha did you know kali's chihuahua is named lulu?

eeyore said...

hi love! we should for sure trade snoopy for lulu and it's very auspicious that lulu is named after kalina's chihuahua.
