A mixture of art in all its forms and random grabs from life and whatever else bubbles up….

Dont wakeup from your dreams…


Nature is a temple where living pillars
Let sometimes emerge confused words;
Man crosses it through forests of symbols
Which watch him with intimate eyes.

Like those deep echoes that meet from afar
In a dark and profound harmony,
As vast as night and clarity,
So perfumes, colors, tones answer each other.

There are perfumes fresh as children’s flesh,
Soft as oboes, green as meadows,
And others, corrupted, rich, triumphant,

Possessing the diffusion of infinite things,
Like amber, musk, incense and aromatic resin,
Chanting the ecstasies of spirit and senses.

The waking world will speak to us in the manner of a dream if we are paying attention. Wind and rain, leaf and mountain, whisper and cry to us in their many voices. Through the play of meaningful coincidence, forces of the world behind the veil of our consensual hallucinations come to bring us awake. The active, awakened dreamer senses himself walking, every day, in the forest of living symbols that Charles Baudelaire evoked, with poetic clarity, in this poem.

  1. Do you think we are too preoccupied with existential problems and no longer see the beauty of nature, or things that bring us happiness?

    I wonder: we see only in dreams? 🙂

    • I guess most of us lose sight of simple beauty sometimes because of existential problems at one stage or another but I see the beauty of nature in all its forms everywhere …specially when you live in this jungle called bucuresti ..I only see beauty in bucurest in irs nature.the insects ,the birds,the parks..the cats.( i will not talk about the street dogs ..I will go into a rage about those pests) hahaa
      QWe need to dream to escape from the harsh reality…and sometimes dreams can come true..maybe not totally the way we would like them to be but a little bit of happiness goes a long way 🙂

      • Thanks a lot Androxa 🙂

        Bucharest is the place where I do not like 😦

        I was only short visits, I spent most of two weeks but I do not like to live there …
        Many people in Bucharest behavior is aggressive, vulgar … people there are cold, aloof and always put the fight… so I do not like 😦
