I first looked, then listened to HiS GOLDEN and loved voice ...maybe the feminine voices are his muses'...
and here is one, having left her golden place and hovering above the poet's mind and heart..her wings are the only remaining celest attributes. She is turning into a real woman . Desire and Longing are part of inspiration ...

Famously of course, Janis Joplin - who he remembered so well at the Chelsea Hotel. Her desire and longing were so heart-rendingly expressed in so many of her songs ... 'Try' is perhaps my favourite.

I have been thinking about the wings of late. Ishtar, Abraxus, Mercury, Iffrits, Angels and many other celestial beings have wings ... different cultural archetypes, same attribute. Why? perhaps because they communicate, bear messages, between Heaven and Earth, the Conscious and the Unconscious. Heaven is always characterised as being 'up there beyond the sky' and wings provide iconic means of transport. They are also incredibly beautiful. I am sure that a real woman would give me wings too ... :)))

Chelsea Hotel "seems so long ago"
those though bodyless and winged muses...fill our christian education culture...but insensibly, the poet gives her her body back : back to the real woman...I read a book about Alma Mahler being one of those Woman with so much light emanating from her that it shone on to the man she loved as well giving him the impression of shining himself ...Nice to be a man's muse that way...And that light remained in her till her old age

A poetic trope of some standing this one! - and therefore a recognised phenomenon. Oh lucky person that bathes in this light.
As Van Morrison sang (with Them):
Turn on your light
Let is shine on me
Turn on your love light
Let it shine on me
Let it shine, shine, shine
Let it shine

Brilliant creation, Shi, and I love the Leonard song. Thanks for taking me back and cheering me up...I like "Try" a lot too.

I have to apologize for being so quiet. My life is a little messy at the moment and there is chaos at Flickr where I USED to put most of my images. I'm staying on Ipernity now - except for my shelter images and some work I do for a guy who has a shop near me. I am in a period of intense grieving (4 years of friendships!!!) and disbelief , but I'll be around when I can...XXOO

ah yes, 'Parting is such sweet sorrow', as Shakespeare's Richard II said. I went through a similar process on leaving Flickr, where I had many good friends who I miss. Some are now here on Ipernity where I have settled. Thanks for telling me, and remember: new friends become old friends! :)*
