my shadow sings
the very air we breathe
the numbing flood
all in its time
for deep within
within this life
and beyond all that
somewhere else
somewhere so strange
why cant i remember
remember what ? my shadow sings
oh now thats quite a voice
subtle as all fuck
sincere and endearing
enduring no flaw
i must be mad i say
though there is no one for years around
just my shadow on the ground
singing across the miles
something about something
called love

    That your shadow sings, is a good sign. I was just
    reading some Jung today (synchronicity you say?).
    The shadow is one of the major archetypes that Jung
    wrote of: a place in the unconscious mind where
    human darkness exists, but also where creativity
    springs. Deep within our unconscious mind the shadow exists and the less we see, the bleaker it is.
    The shadow knows.

    a Serpent, still, and must be
    without the depths of his sea…
    so quiet his memories stay

    this is appealing. don't mean to be a yes man, you don't need another one of those.

    more direct in this one, walking on lyrical… i like that. simplicity is underestimated. too many people do simple an injustice.

    my shadow bares silent witness to all that i do…..i'm sure at times it wants to disconnect itself from me and run into the darkness….

    love always……

    Dear Steve:

    This was truly beautiful, and such an accurate description. Really good writing. Clear, precise, concise and terse. Your elevator speech, I think. Lovely words that dance down the page, delighting the reader.

    U certainly have a way with the words. Luv the title – my shadow sings, very peaceful.

    Were u at the Opera House lassa nite for Lou Reed? Space music at its finest! Know the Church would have loved it. He certainly is up there with the best musos (including of course your goodself). The two young musos with him were blessed with talent. Made me think of the Space Rock show at the Basement, wouldn't that be good to have a repeat of that, or new Space Rock with guest musos.
    Take care.

    Peace & love
