No words existed in its welcome hold

Struggling in the black of sinking sands
As I heard of when a little child
I gave up hope and let myself descend

My garments as a mourner I did rend
Death itself was shown me and beguiled
Struggling in the black of sinking sand

Far away from loved ones ,with no friend
The suffering of the past seemed almost mild
I gave up hope and let myself descend

I felt from every heaven I had been banned
With demons  of the Nazis  in exile
Struggling in the black of sinking sand

I am not inclined to make demands
Yet then  a mystic light caressed my soul
I  had lost my hope and feared  the end

This  golden light  enwrapped me like a stole
No words existed in its welcome hold
Struggling in the black of sinking sands
I was lifted out by  unknown hands


The Old Latin Mass

Tantrum ergo,rhodedendrons…..

We used to have Latin at Mass.

And later we learned it in class

Tantrum ergo

We must forego

As the Church built a new and bright bypass.

We used to sing, Credo in unum.

But some of us sang, Cried in your one.

Our soles were all healed

Partitions were sealed.

Et qua nostalgia nos animadvertum


Emotional responses to interpersonal rejection

A great deal of human emotion arises in response to real, anticipated, remembered, or imagined rejection by other people. Because acceptance by other people improved evolutionary fitness, human beings developed biopsychological mechanisms to apprise them of threats to acceptance and belonging, along with emotional systems to deal with threats to acceptance. This article examines seven emotions that often arise when people perceive that their relational value to other people is low or in potential jeopardy, including hurt feelings, jealousy, loneliness, shame, guilt, social anxiety, and embarrassment. Other emotions, such as sadness and anger, may occur during rejection episodes, but are reactions to features of the situation other than low relational value. The article discusses the evolutionary functions of rejection-related emotions.

Seven Great Novels Written By Poets ‹ Literary Hub


This is a very interesting article and one reason why I like it is because of poets who write novels are probably well acquainted with the literature and their skills of observation, notice small things that we don’t always see ourselves and and the command of the written language is probably sophisticated.

The one area where poets may not the best writers of novels is that they may find dialogue hard to create.

We all have limitations in what we can observe because we grew up in a certain culture a certain social class if British.

I had a religious upbringing and although I no longer believe in the way that I did because I don’t think you can prove the existence of God logically find my unconscious mind is still very much affected by that and I’m not sorry about that.

I don’t live it what we call sacred to the about load as defined by the Catholic church there are many things that we can call sacred. Love or friendship can be sacred.

It’s always useful to read somebody else’s opinion about a writer of novels because there’s a lot published and we can’t we all them and we don’t want to waste our time or money
