Desert Landscape — Arrangement In Gray and Black by kenne

“When at last, in all my storms, my whole self speaks,
then there is a pause. The soul collects itself into pure
silence and isolation—perhaps after much pain. The
mind suspends its knowledge and waits. The psyche
becomes strangely still.”

— from Fantasia of the Unconscious by D. H. Lawrence

HAPPY NEW YEAR, 2017!   3 comments

On this New Year’s day, taking notes from D. H. Lawrence.’s Fantasia of the Unconscious, I penned the following, with apologies to Lawrence:

New Year’s day,
Sunday at home

a light winter rain
refreshes the desert,

I ponder my mind,
psyche and soul,

whose trinity form
the powers of my

whole being
together speaking

in one voice, which
I can never deny.

When at last,
in all life’s storms,

my whole self speaks,
only to pause,

collecting itself into
pure silence and isolation –

perhaps after much pain,
the mind suspends

its knowledge, and waits.
It is then the psyche becomes

strangely still,
and after a pause,

there is a fresh beginning,
a new life adjustment

pushing a deep sigh
through every pore

fading into a mist —
a sense of mystery.
