Wear scarlet!

Wear scarlet! Tear the green lemons
off the tree! I don’t want
to forget who I am, what has burned in me,
and hang limp and clean, an empty dress.”
Denise Levertov


Art by Daniel F. Gerhartz.


She is primarily a teacher of English. Also her mind is lured by goodies like finance, economics, interest rates, the stock market, as she has a hankering for how the money is made. Nevertheless she is a dreamer on a cloud...As dreams cost nothing... In ordinary days she is a word-weaver for everything and everything that breathes. In the best of days she just follows the seasons by means of bike, skis, or roller-skates. She is grateful to all colors of the world and to people who read, smile and drop a line here, or on her email.

    Odd you should post that quotation this morning. Another ‘coincidence’? You can decide when I finish the post I began earlier this morning, probably much later today. One thing I have in common with Dernise Levertov: I too in later life have decided that beauty and poetry cannot go together with politics.

      Odd that I changed the post. I wanted to post something else. “Coincidence” :).
      You and Denise are right.
      Earlier in my life I was invited to join politics. I thought then it could be an adventure. I like people and giving speeches. But out of a sudden I changed my mind.
      Anyway out of that adventure I remain with a dream of starting something about political marketing. Maybe later 🙂
      Thank you Roger!

“Language is not like the sun,
heating and scorching
but like the moon
keeping secrets
and the arcane magic of the night
throwing stars
in the lilacs’ claws
till dawn.” -Iulia Halatz
