Just before my dad died, after a long and happy life, and a short illness after a day of visits from his four children, their partners, and his grandchildren in his hospital room before his final two days in the ICU freed of all machines he said aloud amidst the tangle of tubes and needles that were holding him in place, “I feel so loved.” 🌟 He was loved. He, an intelligent, practical, joyful, passionate, idealist, gave a lifetime of perfectly imperfect love, and he received it back. 🌟 That, I find, is the secret to everything: the loving and being loved wherever one finds it the seeing of life, with all of its light and dark, with a joyful, grateful eye. 🌟 Happy love to you, whatever it means to you, whatever form it takes for you, today and every day. 🌟 My house host, who expected me to be as temporary a guest as I intended to be, got the personal tornado of me instead. He has been generous and supportive in response. This morning he gave me a card from @bisonbookbinding  in Bellingham, Washington where my dad was born, and where my Duwamish grandfather owned a tailor shop, circa 1915, in the Holly-Bay-Prospect Building. It’s a beautiful, serendipitous card. 🌟🌟🌟 For me, love begins with self love. For that reason, one of my favorite poems is Derek Walcott’s “Love After Love”. If you’d like to read about that poem, and then read the poem itself, here’s a link to it on Maria Popova’s blog Brain Pickings. https://www.brainpickings.org/2015/04/21/love-after-love-derek-walcott/ #love  #eecummings  #divefordreams  #bisonletterpress  #bellingham  #derekwalcott  #loveafterlove  #mariapopova  #brainpickings 

Coming home to yourself can take a long time. But it is worth the work to discover your deepest yearnings. And that is where you are likely to find what you are most suited to do. #sundaypoem  . . . . . . . #derekwalcott  #selfdiscovery  #love  #motivation  #self  #purpose  #poems  #poetry

---------------------------------------------------- The time will come when, with elation, you will greet yourself arriving at your own door, in your own mirror, and each will smile at the other's welcome, And say, sit here. Eat. You will love again the stranger who was yourself. Give wine. Give bread.

CONCLUDENDO Vivo sull’acqua, solo. Senza moglie né figli. Ho circumnavigato ogni possibilità per arrivare a questo: una piccola casa su acqua grigia, con le finestre sempre spalancate al mare stantio. Certe cose non le scegliamo noi, ma siamo quello che abbiamo fatto. Soffriamo, gli anni passano, lasciamo tante cose per via, fuorché il bisogno di fardelli. L’amore è una pietra che si è posata sul fondo del mare sotto acqua grigia. Ora, non chiedo nulla alla poesia, se non vero sentire: non pietà, non fama, non sollievo. Tacita sposa, noi possiamo sederci a guardare acqua grigia, e in una vita che trabocca di mediocrità e rifiuti vivere come rocce. Scorderò di sentire, scorderò il mio dono. E’ più grande e duro, questo, di ciò che là passa per vita.

Rendi il cuore a se stesso, allo straniero che ti ha amato per tutta la tua vita, che hai ignorato per un altro che ti sa a memoria.

Do you all know the artwork of Romaire Bearden? If not, today’s post will offer a buffet of glory. So many new poets and a great artist too! For #thesealeychallenge  13/31, I selected Bearden’s Odyssey, an anthology edited by Kwame Dawes and Matthew Shenoda. • The editors of this collection invited several black poets to write work in conversation with selections of #romairebearden  collages. The book itself features reproductions of some of these pieces, but as with any good #ekphrasticpoetry  these poems move beyond simple description into a space of collaborative reinvention. Here are a few samples, but get the book for more #greatpoetry  and #greatart  plus a delightful essay by #derekwalcott  • #bookstagram  #poetsofinstagram  #bookadict  #bookaday  #anthology  #poetry  #collage  #blackwriters  #blackexcellence  #douglaskearney  #eethelbertmiller  #viviefrancis  #lyraevancliefstefanon  #kwamedawes  #matthewshenoda  @nupress  #ekphrasis  #blackart  #americanart  @kwame.dawes

Anguilla, Adina, Antigua, Cannelles, Adreuille, tutte le “I”, Voyelles, delle liquide Antille, I nomi tremano come spilli Di fregate all’àancora, Panfili tranquilli come gigli, In porti di calmi coralli, Le snelle chiglie d’ebano Di golette che intessono stretti, Gli aghi dei loro alberi Che infilzano arcipelaghi Ricami rifratti In acque febbrili D’isole di marinai, Le loro spoglie, chine palme, Lance di Ulisse, Vulcani ciclopici, Scricchiolano le loro storie, Nella pace dei verdi ancoraggi, Flight e Phyllis, Tornate dalle Grenadine, Nomi iscritti di domenica, Nel registro doganale I loro nomi di battesimo, Le liquide lettere del mare, Repos donnez à cils… E ai loro carichi ardenti Di carbone e arance Quieto il furore delle funi. L’erompere del giorno si rompe Sull’acqua verde cromo, Bianchi aironi di panfili In comunione domenicale, Le storie delle golette Mormorate nel corallo, I loro carichi di spugne Su strette isolette di sabbia, Barche bianche come bianco sale Dell’acre St. Maarten, Scafi incrostati di cirripedi, Stive insozzate di testuggini, I cui mozzi hanno visto Il levarsi azzurro del Leviatano Derek Walcott, Poesie scelte #frase  #frasiitaliane  #instafrasi  #citazioni  #aforismi  #leggere  #libri  #instalibri  #librisulibri  #libribelli  #libriconsigliati  #leggeresempre  #leggerefabene  #leggeremania  #scrittore  #scrittori  #librielibri  #librisulcomodino  #libribellissimi  #leggerelibri  #librodelgiorno  #letteratura  #citazioniletterarie  #poesia  #poesie  #derekwalcott  #mare  #spiaggia  #estate  #barche

There is a poem that Richard Rohr @cacradicalgrace  mentions at the end of his new book #TheUniversalChrist  that stuck with me when I read it. Particularly his commentary of this poem when he asks us to consider that when we look in the mirror we see the eyes of Christ staring back at us. Today I am looking and asking “Will Christ’s light shine through me today?” Will it shine through you as well?

Io, con le gambe incrociate alla luce del giorno, guardo I pugni variegati di nuvole che si raccolgono sopra Gli sgraziati lineamenti di questa mia isola prona. Intanto i piroscafi che dividono orizzonti dichiarano Noi perduti Trovati solo In opuscoli turistici, dietro ardenti binocoli Trovati nel riflesso blu di occhi Che hanno conosciuto metropoli e ci credono felici, qui. Il tempo striscia sui pazienti che da troppo sono pazienti, Così io, che ho fatto una scelta, Scopro che la mia fanciullezza se n’è andata. E la mia vita, troppo presto, certo, per la profonda sigaretta, La maniglia girata, il coltello che rigira Nelle viscere delle ore, non deve essere resa pubblica Finché non ho imparato a soffrire In accurati giambi. Vado, certo, attraverso tutti gli atti isolati, Faccio di situazioni una vacanza, Mi aggiusto la cravatta e fisso mascelle importanti, E noto le vive immagini Di carne che passeggiano per l’occhio. Finché da tutto mi allontano per pensare come, Nel mezzo del cammin della mia vita, Oh come giunsi a incontrare te, mio Riluttante leopardo dai lenti occhi. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #preludio  #derekwalcott  #picoftheday📸  #poetrybooks  #mappadelnuovomondo  #portpoetry  #igersabruzzo  #booksphotography

Everything goes to hell the mountains fume like a kettle, rivers overrun still, she will not rise and turn off the rain. She is in her room, fondling old things, my poems, turning her album. Even if thunder falls like a crash of plates from the sky, she does not come out. Don't you know I love you but am hopeless at fixing the rain?" • — from "Dark August" by Derek Walcott (1930—2017) • • After much hot, dry weather, they're predicting rain.

Love After Love Derek Walcott The time will come when, with elation, you will greet yourself arriving at your own door, in your own mirror, and each will smile at the other’s welcome, and say, sit here. Eat. You will love again the stranger who was your self. Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart to itself, to the stranger who has loved you all your life, whom you ignored for another, who knows you by heart. Take down the love letters from the bookshelf, the photographs, the desperate notes, peel your own image from the mirror. Sit. Feast on your life.

Tempo verrà in cui, con esultanza, saluterai te stesso arrivato alla tua porta, nel tuo proprio specchio, e ognuno sorriderà al benvenuto dell’altro e dirà: Siedi qui. Mangia. Amerai di nuovo lo straniero che era il tuo Io. Offri vino. Offri pane. Rendi il cuore a se stesso, allo straniero che ti ha amato per tutta la tua vita, che hai ignorato per un altro e che ti sa a memoria. Dallo scaffale tira giù le lettere d’amore, le fotografie, le note disperate, sbuccia via dallo specchio la tua immagine. Siediti. È festa: la tua vita è in tavola.

A man with clouded eyes picks up the rain and plucks the first line of the Odyssey. 🌊 #archipelagoes  #derekwalcott  #poetry  #rain  #sea  #luimpostu  #santeodoro  #temporaliestivi

« What does the work of Édouard Glissant tell us about the relationship between philosophical thinking and the history and memory of the Middle Passage? That is, how does the historical experience of the New World alter conceptions of knowing, being, creating, and acting? » #summerreading  #edouardglissant  #walterbenjamin  #derekwalcott  #shoreline  #futurity  #becoming  #abyss  #franzfanon  #martinheidegger  #aimecesaire  #georgelamming  #rhizome  #universityofminnesotapress
