Celebrating Diversity #8

Mon Oct 29, 2012, 12:01 PM
Most of you know me for my rather dark surreal and abstract art features, often accompanied with melancholic and depressive music. But this doesn't mean that I'm not paying attention to other genres of art here on deviantART. That is why I like the idea of "Celebrating Diversity". It's an "out of the comfort zone" feature, so to speak.

Enjoy!

:peace:

Literature


  Autumn BluesThe days are getting shorter
and the nights are growing cold.
I am older than my children,
but that is not so old.
I know too much to be talking,
but not enough to stop.
When a pile has a bottom,
I can see who's on top.
The Man says he will give you
something you can use -
then he builds a bigger pipeline
for pumping in the blues.
There is Samson in the temple,
tearing it down with all his might.
Or maybe that's not Samson,
just some fool who lost his sight.
A rich man by the highway
had his thumb out for a ride.
I saw him pull a gun out
when I had driven by.
Some things are made of sugar,
some things are made of mud.
And what are people made of?
Bone and flesh and blood.
For a long time I was healing
and now I think it's done.
But you will not see me limping
if I do not try to run.
October light is shining
like the horn of jubilee.
I may never hear that horn blow,
but this light is good to see.
Going to keep myself together,
with my baby close at hand.
It's a good life we are living,

"If man is to survive, he will have learned to take a delight in the essential differences between men and between cultures. He will learn that differences in ideas and attitudes are a delight, part of life's exciting variety, not something to fear."
- Gene Roddenberry

And sorry for replying so late - I didn't have internet connection for a while. :P That explains my inactivity in #WhoNeedsColour as well.

Thank you so much, Yvette. I agree with what you're saying, and I have to say that making this journal was a good reminder to myself that there's much more to discover than photography only. :blushes:

Thank you for this Project, it helps people like me to get a slightly better idea of this place, which at times, reminds me to a vast wasteland. The nice design of da helps a little, but nevertheless, there is so much art stored in this place, one has really to dig deep to find those artists of interest. But before I start to ramble around, thanks a lot, this is really appreciated :)
