*Note: In celebration of National Poetry Month. John Keats a life and love short lived. His poem Bright Star a favorite of mine.

If you’ve never seen the movie by the same title, I recommend it. The photo and above link feature a piece of the sound track. Enjoy! 🌎✌🏻💙🦋

Twilight Goddess *

Venus alone rules

in azure sky

suns daylight

burns beneath her

Neptune watches

from afar fearful

of drawing near

knowing she’d

thaw his heart

drowning suns

eternal fire

throwing earth

into darkness

moons waxing

light unable to

sustain life

thus he admires

her beauty

from the

furthest

region

in

the

galaxy

*Note: the above photo of Venus Was taken on March 29th at twilight. The other artwork I found on google images no credit was listed, it is lovely though. The following song is for your listening pleasure. 🌎✌🏻💙

Shocking Blue in 1970 “Venus” was issued in the Netherlands in July 1969 as a single, backed with “Hot Sand”, on the Pink Elephant label. The song peaked at number three on the Dutch Top 40 on 12 July 1969, and remained at that position for a total of five weeks. Later that year, “Venus” was issued in several European countries and other worldwide nations. In the United States, “Venus” reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 on 7 February 1970. On 28 January 1970, it was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for sales in excess of one million copies in the United States.[4] Worldwide, the single has sold over 7.5 million copies.[5] “Venus” was included as a bonus track on the 1989 CD reissue of the group’s second studio album, At Home, originally released in 1969.

*Note: I give you for your listening enjoyment Clair de lune’

by Claude Debussy who was a French composer. He is sometimes seen as the first Impressionist composer, although he vigorously rejected the term. He was among the most influential composers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Debussy took the title from an atmospheric poem by the French poet Paul Verlaine which depicts the soul as somewhere full of music ‘in a minor key’ where birds are inspired to sing by the ‘sad and beautiful’ light of the moon, it was inspiration for the composition. I wish I knew who the artist is of this piece, it’s signed however I could not make out the name. It seems to be a watercolor with some ink, it is beautifully done.

*Note: I couldn’t have found a better piece of music to go with this. When you’re isolated you have to sometimes mix it up as they say.

Restless (tanka)*

darkness speaks loudly

unsettling thoughts occupy

sleep becomes unknown

wakeful eyes watch time tick by

awaiting Beloveds return

*Note: we’ve all been there, when the brain hits overdrive (for a million different reasons) and won’t power down. Sometimes it’s just that the person you’re used to sleeping with isn’t there. In the meantime here is something to listen to till sleep arrives. 🌎✌🏻💙 😴 💤
