"Go into yourself. Find out the reason that commands you to write; see whether it has spread its root into the very depths of your heart; confess to yourself whether you would have to die if you were forbidden to write." Rainier Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

When you feel dis-con-nec-ted

Feeling dis-con-nec-ted
and living those oh-so-similar days

But the rains are new
the flowers are here too

......then why is there the same weather in me !

Go on ma chere dance in the rain
wash yourself a-new


Did you 'hear' the flower blooming !
did you 'see' the cool breeze !
......and nearby some-whe-re
did you feel a butterfly emerging !

Note: i start writing feeling all lonely and end up finding some hope on the way to the end......that invariably happens to me. So that notion about 'hearing' the flower blooming and 'seeing' the breeze were all about heightened senses which you all must have experienced when you feel you are on the brink of an amazing discovery or something. I just wanted to convey the anxiety and the idea of stepping onto something lovely...very soon,hence the single quotes,because they aren't real !
But then why did i not single quote the (feel) in metamorphosis ! You people have the guess.

I do hear the flower blooming and see the cool breeze all here in your metaphors of metamorphosis.

Very nice expressive writing.

Very nice picture collection, once again!

You may be right about that transcendental feeling when you are on that verge of discovering something great. Sadly, I am yet to feel something like that. :(
