Poem Inspired by mistYmuse on Day 4 of Longest Festival

Where there is mist

Y, there is muse

Tryst In Me, Sky Birds Tree

grist to the mill
mist on the hill
words enter mind
meet-up maybe rhymed

then they chime, clickety click time

sub-lime olive green
branch bells ringing
nest like ancient amygdala
mirroring brain stripped bare

I wasn’t going to write a poem until seeing the misty weather forecast; even though I could see the mist! so the above poem could definitely be said to have been inspired by the mistYmuse, although it was more about seeing it in writing and having the proof to display.

A couple of links I used:

A couple of books I wrote and recommend:

Poem of Spider, Cow, Bee, Money, Society Analogy

The Tree of Life

Marc Latham saw Terrence Malick‘s Tree of Life yesterday at the Leeds Light Vue Cinema, where it is still showing, and totally recommends it for the best cinematic experience of the year (millennium?), and an all-encompassing philosophy that he’s also been searching for over the last few years, including on this site, but admits he doesn’t completely know what the film is about yet. ¬†He’s off to find out on the web soon…if there is a complete rationale!
Anyway, his latest poem is more stuck in the scandals of British society over recent years, although Malick has also investigated the duality of humanity in previous films, and the latest a little, and was doing this sort of thing a long time before Latham.
