Great Dpbours 2007-05-27 4:33

Hi Gilad,

An impressive picture you got here. Very strong and graphical. A good note as well. And with each story, there are always two sides to it. Two sides both believing (too) strongly in their right and spirits.

It's always good to believe something if not too fanatic, which these days seems to be the reason for unstability rather than unity on a macro scale.

Greetings! Dennis

What he thought was his soul
was not his soul; it was a noise,
the sound of an engine idling;

it was the flapping of pigeons
by the dried up plaza fountain,
each one the color of a different winter day.

A desert fortune read in abandoned
bones, a spirit of sand and dust
when the dyed tents left: he tried
to make the most of what abounded.

In the full heat of midday,
his mistakes were understandable;
what he took to be a lake, was not a lake.

Perhaps a whole world waits, preserved
in stale ice at the polar caps,
but what is it waiting for?

Should the men at the research stations
venture out, believing their haywire
compasses among the dormant spores
of other ages?

Given time, even there,
out there, they will feel warm,
cozy and doomed in the dazzling
blue and white.

Unmoving,
they will swear that they are warm
on a frigid night, but they are not warm;

last breaths leave their lips like souls in flight. " unquote
