Awash in a Sea of Magenta








It was a "meditation on a theme of magenta moment" and I realized how inevitable the cycles of life are; how we all belong to unending struggle. For just a second I found peace when my mind was awash in a sea of Magenta.

Today.. a continuum.

Wondeful to have you back! A log time ago the Japanese station in NYC always put subtitles on all of their soap operas, (now hardly ever) anyway, the first soap I watched was the typical Romeo and Juliet story (the lovers never ended up together in any of these soaps! ) The symbol in the first soap I saw was the Cosmos flower. They kept showing fields of them, and the girl receives them as a gift from her new love, and she walks in the fields of cosmos a lot, and feels feelings, and she ends up picking them for his grave, and saying the how cosmos lower has given her strength and self esteem. I can't see that flower without thinking of of that Japanese soap opera!

oh, these are fabulous, Princess...those seconds may be fleeting, during an epiphany, but to be able to meditate in a sea of magenta...how lovely.

Haiku you're back, YAY!!! My summer has been great, everything's been great. I'm trying to get my cornet(trumpet) instrument fixed, it has a few dents in the chromed brass that needs smoothing out plus a missing spit valve. But with the others I'm trying to get better at playing them and write a few songs of my own.

But I've been waiting for you to come back you're one reader and viewer that I've missed.

btw nice magenta flowers, they're so colorful! :)

Nice to have you back, thanks for your comment. :D

Take care now, Mavin. :)

PS - I've got more happy poems, both short and long coming, I wrote that new poem cus my mind was puzzeled at the time and writing helped, like always. But glad you loved the short one. :D

Hi Mavin,
I look forward to reading more of your poems. I tried a trumpet once and it was fun although all I did was splutter very loudly! :) I play the flute and would like to try a piccolo eventually.

Goatman, thanxs for the great link. I enjoyed it a lot.

Hey Haiku, I posted two new poems, when I have the time there's more coming, all of a sudden my writing spirit has come out to play recently. :D I also responded back to your comment about the cicadas (I didn't know you commented on that). :)
That's one reason why I need to put on comment moderator, as you have, so I can see who's commented on things.

Oh Haiku, LOL, I know you could get very skillful at playing the trumpet, lol. :D A piccolo sounds nice, you should get one of those soon and start playing! :)


Later, Mavin.


PS - Bob Dylan is coming down to Austin Texas soon on Sept. 14 - 16 for ACL. I hope I'll be able to go. :)

Hello!, thanks for the comment, yes I've visited that natural park for wolves by internet, it's very beautiful and the wolves they have there are just great. I wish they could come to japan one day.

Take care!

I wrote about this in a post.
It is an absolutely graceful dance from where I come from. :)
