Tangerine Dream: Sunny Thoughts

This is probably only relevant to single people, without commitments; although it’s about mental escape rather than physical. It is also not about Blackpool F.C. or what might have been for Princess Kate’s Blackpool visit.

Diets and nights out
are just holiday escapes
quickly returning to norm
negative people and society
for real mental health
you have to leave altogether
in mind and spirit
if not in body
locking yourself away
with the real you
is better than being
someone demanded by others
just to feel half normal
in their image and
little bubble world.

Since I moved my mind to the sun I feel much better.
That’s not to say I don’t still care about Earth.
Just that it’s not as important.
Maybe you’re not ready to make that journey.
If you’re still full of joy and ambitions maybe you shouldn’t.
But maybe it’ll help in negative times even for everyone.

I’m not claiming this is new or original, it’s just my experiences written down, from a path forged by humanity over thousands of years… with my mind philosophy most recently updated by watching a documentary about shaolin monks… I’ll probably never reach their ‘enlightenment’ and definitely won’t achieve their physical agility!

In response to the expected Double Negative response, I don’t ‘fancy them’ and I’m not making out ‘I’m hard’!!

The Original Blog Post

I started listening to Tangerine Dream: Zeit before reading an article about sun storms. Then I wrote and I wrote… well not that much, just this while posting it on Facebook:

Sun is the One: I don’t claim any influence on it; expect any favours.
I do think that if it is sentient, it will appreciate me for that.
Liking it for what it is, rather than for what it can give me, above others.
I think it would understand those with real problems trying to contact it.
It cannot be expected to hear everybody though, while running the solar system.
As this article says, we should be grateful every day for its good management;
sending just enough heat our way overall.
It does its job, but is humanity as a whole, doing theirs;
if they are Earth’s caretakers, rather than executioners!

Stella Of Silbury, Sending Out Space: SOS… x2… Voulez-Vous… Knowing Me Knowing You?

Having seen the Silbury Hill mystery POP (PinkyOrangePurple) cloud that looked like rocket smoke yesterday, and then finding this StellaDrone epic space music today, some (neurons in my mind, like the Numskulls of comic fame, and Inside Out characters of movie stardom) are wondering if it was Stella Lagerwolf-Bruno of the greenYgrey world (inspired by Stella McCartney, Karl Lagerfeld and Sacha Baron-Cohen’s Bruno character) who’d POPed in to visit Silbury.

Silbury Hill Mystery Cloud Matches POP (PinkyOrangePurple) Descript/Fash-ion

Posted the day after I wrote about the 1964/65 UFO experiences there that coincided with my birth a mysterious POP (PinkyOrangePurple) cloud mystery in Warminster area made the media, and I saw it today on MSN.

The mysterious twisting cloud is also set against a classic POP panorama.

Was it military training, somebody having a laugh, a natural coincidence, or a totally POP UFO (Unidentified – although it should really be a UC – Unidentified Cloud?).

The truth is out there, and they also reference X-Files in the video!

 

Why I’m a Creative Writer Poet: Stream of Consciousness Poem

I removed some mental clutter on the travel25years.wordpress.com site yesterday, my mind’s been enthused by reading about UFOs recently, including photosynthesis on Earth in a scientific one, and the latest NASA’s Unexplained Files (series 2, episode 2) last night (which featured orbs amongst other things, saying they often happen above geological fault lines before earthquakes, so they think they could be created by the same tectonic friction that causes earthquakes. My ‘experience’ was of course in Iceland, famously home to one part of a fault line, where you can swim between the North American and Eurasian plates. Thankfully, an earthquake or volcanic eruption hasn’t followed, and it’s now over a year later.) If any photography experts think it is a camera light trick please let me know; it certainly wasn’t mine!

Poetic Inspiration

I think I’ve just about recovered from a cold I’ve had all week, and I think recovering from illness can provide a little ‘high’. I’ve done the ‘right thing’ and tried to avoid other people as much as possible; but tend to do that now anyway!

Moreover, the sun is shining on snow-covered roofs, providing more mental stimulation, as it differs from the norm. I was also looking back with nostalgia at the Y-day week of celebrations, and especially how T had unconsciously found a place in Oates’s final quote: ‘I may be some Time.’

While you may look on me negatively, celebrating my own work, to me, my conscious as I write this, it doesn’t even seem my work; rather it’s my hidden unconscious, which is like my ‘twin’, or the muse. We are of course now in the muse half of the mistYmuse new-age winter festival!

While there are lots of new-age pagan bands, titles and themes I like in rock now, I was particularly poetically impressed by Earth’s album title: ‘The Bees Made Honey in the Lion’s Skull’!

I could make my new poem below into a Folding Mirror poem, but for now, here it is stream of consciousness style. While it’s probably covered old themes of mine; something I’ve criticised rock bands for doing before!; it does have some new and updated material, and the biggest new innovation of having the title at the start and finish; kind of Folding Mirror style…

When Time Stopped, Trees Breathed Photosynthesis, Aliens Returned Requesting…

that moment you don’t remember happening
when you’ve worked up enough steam
and you can freewheel
as if you’ve climbed the steep hill
and now you’re racing down the other side
or struggled upriver against the tide
and now you’re rushing downriver
with the tide washing over you
driving and covering you
so you just have to breathe and steer
but while in physical activities
you just have experience and memories
here you also have
‘genius’ word connections
popping out of
synchronicity in motion
like atoms reacting
creating electrical charges
brain freeflowing
open to cosmos
like puddle to cloud
ocean and rain
no need for devotion
pure pleasure
zonal leisure
this is the moment you write
like the times you feel like flying
when running or cycling
having warmed up on the day
after years of training
the sun is shining
words are flowing
and when you review
they sparkle more than you
remember writing
or even think
you’re capable of
producing, creating, painting
while the conscious has the here and now
the unconscious has past and present… future?..

Humanity, put a stop to this.

P.S. Notice that last line fitting finale little bit of self-proclaimed genius wordplay – which was the unconscious in control as I wrote about times when the unconscious is in control – ‘put a stop to this’ before the full stop!?

Our Place in Space Poem Inspired by French Film

I got the idea of ‘humanity are waves of the ocean, not the oceans’ while watching the French film Heal the Living (Réparer les vivants); an adaptation by Katell Quillévéré from a book by Maylis de Kerangal, who studied history and philosophy in Rouen and Paris.

Inspiring Surfing Sea Sleep Scenes

I don’t know if my thoughts were what the film’s creators intended to convey, and my thoughts were also influenced by my prior learning and knowledge, especially into space and astronomy, animals and nature, including UFOs and our place in the universe.

I thank all those who’ve helped me see so far in my lifetime, from the astronomers on Earth to the astronauts in space; and those in power who’ve allowed freedom of information, to the investigators who’ve conducted their own research, and presented it in the media.

Opening Sky Sight

Without all of you, I would just know the sky above, and be wondering about what is beyond. I would say like my ancestors, but who knows what they knew, and who they had contact with. We only know about 5000 years of ‘history’ and have only travelled as far as our moon, both of which are tiny amounts in the vastness of space time.

We are finding out more about our past and present all the time, and may it continue into the distant future… remembering the first and foremost rule is that the limitations are ours, but that our perseverance has broken through the placenta atmosphere, and we are still alive. We are like a baby seeing the world for the first time (this wave of humanity baby anyway!), and still have a lot of learning to do…

To Heal the Living, Creating the Life Given

I am a drop
in the ocean
humanity a wave
of animal sea
our planet Earth
a universal pebble

small blue dot, thanks a lot

helping me see
wood and tree
place of reality
pioneers of astronomy
set me free
in to out infinity

Mirror Poem Contrasts Jupiter Space Missions with Amazon Spirituality Traditions

This poem was inspired by a few news stories this week, some of which I’ve already written about on here and my other travel25years.wordpress.com blog. I guess it started on Saturday with the latest NASA’s Unexplained Files, which is a repeat on the Quest channel from 2016.

Jupiter’s Moons Space Missions

It had a feature about Jupiter’s moons having a good possibility of life inside their icy oceans, and mentioned some trips are planned. I looked it up today and that inspired the top half of the poem. The good news is there are two planned, the bad news is they are not due to send back info until 2033! I think that shows why we haven’t found life beyond our planet yet, as we can hardly reach anywhere in our solar system, and it takes so long. That’s not a complaint, just an observation. The space scientists are amazing people, and achievements in my lifetime have been incredible.

A little Doctor Jekyll and Hyde wordplay fun developed in lines 3 and 7!

Amazon Ayahuasca Spirit Animals

I thought of contrasting it with an Amazon bottom half after seeing an article on MSN today about over eighty new human settlements found there where the Amazon jungle has been cleared. Of course that’s a bittersweet story. Like the new finds at Tikal and elsewhere, I hope it doesn’t mean more deforestation.

I started off thinking I’d have Amazon as the final word, mirroring Ariane, the rocket set to carry the European Space Agency’s JUpiter ICy moons Explorer (JUICE) spacecraft (Wikipedia). NASA also has a mission planned at the same time. However, it developed into a spiritual journey path, with Amazon’s centrality to the lower half more mirroring Jupiter’s centrality to the top half in line 4. Ariane is better reflected by ayahuasca, which traditionally provides the propulsion for spiritual flight journeys to the tribal people.

The middle folding lines provide a little personal info. The year 3302 BC reflectively mirrors the year when the mission hopes to send back info, and is otherwise random, but there probably were tribal people on spiritual journeys there 5000 years ago, if they arrived on the continent 13,000-20,000 years ago as thought, and mentioned here in the last blog post.

The two images are taken from another MSN article about finding alien life this century. The top one has a POP (PinkyOrangePurple) look, as well as the yellow sun, while the bottom one is old-fashioned greenygrey in colour, with a modern design, and the alien doing a Y!

The above poem is like a more specific version of SAGAS (Solipsistic Astronaut Gravitates Agnostic Space), the opening poem of 242 Mirror Poems and Reflections and previously previewed on this site way back in 2012. It’s hard to believe I hadn’t met Quest then!
