Once upon a mystery,

stars they are, whereas we read our history;

“To dwell and sweep through mother’s consistory.”

The unquiet heaven watching over our nameless graves,

6 feet under; “Down the rhythms waves,

all being poor galley slaves.”

By no means, whereas we search for the seas,

we shall leave our token unpleased.

By wind and chill we feel thou breeze.

  1. Awesome! It reminds me of how the future is foretold, being very similar to our history. Humans repeat their mistakes, even if those mistakes were from dead people who died because of them.

  2. Jojo, I have re-read this one a few times now. Just want to say first (and again) that I love your poetic and visual aesthetic. I also checked out your blog from the front end (i.e. outside WP Reader) just now and the blog also is very beautiful. Your profile photo is perfect btw and makes me smile (also in WP) every time I see it. So awesome, the faces. Reminds me of Life is Beautiful for some reason. The theory not the face. Well your face is also beautiful but you know what I mean hopefully. Anyhow, I love the phrases in this and I had to look up consistory. “the council of cardinals, with or without the pope.” So “mother’s consistory” is very intriguing indeed. I feel like I have one over here somedays but that is in a kingdom of chimps lol. Then there is my favourite part: “The unquiet heaven watching over our nameless graves, / 6 feet under; “Down the rhythms waves,” … and then the fact that we are all poor galley slaves, with the help of the first comment and your reply, I decide that perhaps you have a bit the same philosophy as I, which is that we can’t get well by staring always at sickness. Yet, poor devils that we are, we can’t seem to help ourselves.

    Thanks for all your wonderful support dear friend. You’re a beautiful writer, it’s a beautiful life. :)) xoxo
