When We Talked About Whatever

only after closing our eyes
 could we finally see each other

and for the first time
 we realized
 that the empty space between us
was the place
for everything to become beautiful



Peachyyy said...

I love all your poems :)
Great stuff!

roseanna2u said...

I love this so much! <3

Pip said...

Sooo beautiful! Where did you find the picture? I love it! X

rivercat said...

Thanks pip, it's a painting I made to go with the poem. Really more of a sketch but sometimes enough Thanks for visiting :)

Heather said...

So true.
We spend too much time speaking with words, and never enough speaking with our hearts.

Stephen oh Stephen
you little devil you ,this fame in creation is so rewarding and touching

Martina said...

if this poem is yours I must admit you were touched by god or devil, wonderful

rivercat said...

ha ha if those are my only two choices I'll choose god. I wrote this poem last night. It was like a branch that fell off my previous poem... maybe more like a limb that grew and was too big, i dont know. .
I've always loved Spain, even though Ive never been there. Thank you for the nice comment :)

Brittany said...

And it would be beautiful and extraordinary.
Two diamonds sparkling as one.

Thanks for this, It was wonderful to read.

Psycho Babbling Basher said...

Rivercat, you keep on writing like this and I would likely fall in love with you. :)
Spain? My father's homeland. It is a place you will fall in love a thousand times over.

i love it... the words are so real that i wish the person i love will say something like this to me too.

p.s. rivercat, that anon commented the same thing to my post (i can be the pillow.....) except he/she added "oh Rob is same person ,just different freaky user name"

what the hell?! looks like someone's angry on you. hehe... you have any idea who? and hmmm.. am i your only follower who gets comments like these? please answer. thanks :)

Akeith Walters said...

well done.

Anonymous said...

ok. thanks.

rivercat said...

thanks akeith,heather,rose, peachy, pip, brittany,haze, martina, and psycho for the nie comments.. you are all amazing and i do read and love what you write.

ok psycho,:) i will use that provocative icon for my motivation when I get back home and write something...using this tiny thing to type is no good for anything but comments.

Haze, i dont know who that anon is and i dont care except that it bothers me he is posting at your blog and annoying you. I wrote you a post on your blog and explained how I deal with 'anons gone wild' :)

zonedin said...

I love this simplicity, that we have that space between and we can relax and know there is nothing else we have to be doing. We don't have to be in an interlocking embrace to feel the most amount of love.

Trickie said...

I stop by your Blog and I am always delighted. Your words together are just beautiful.
Come to Spain. Psycho is correct. It is a lovely place to fall in love.

Anna Sergi said...

The place for everything to become beautiful exists only when two persons are the 'everywhere'.

rivercat said...

zoned- thanks :)
anna-right now im in the middle of nowhere, and everything is whatever :) but the poem is just about agreeing to talk about something that had earlier been mutually put on mute, but still unresolved, so i guess that could be related to your thought about there being an everywhere openness or whatever:)

trickie-thanks :) i will get there eventuallly. spain, austrlia, france, and china are on my to do list.

Diablesse said...

Beautiful poem Rivercat
I hope that space in between becomes beautiful, because more often than not, it widens and becomes to wide to beautify.
Your poem gives hope, the picture makes you believe it.

zonedin said...

Beauty is as wide as your mind and as immense as your heart..... I just thought of that;~)

zonedin said...

Oh yes, and how about deep as your soul.

rivercat said...

Thanks Diablesse, your namme reminds me of that old black&white, Les Diaboliques becuase of the sound. In the poem the closing of the eyes represents them looking at the reality of the situation in relation to each other and knowing they could work it out. That is not always the case.Probably a third of all relationships start with the parties being too far apart to begin with and the flutters are driving the ship wherever it may go but ultimately, the relationship ends if they realize they are at different places inside after the initial buzz subsides a little. Sometimes it never does and I guess those are the ones you see together in the nursing home holding hands. I Dont really know a lot about it, just what Ive experienced so far.
This is a generalization, but it seems to me that often women are more mature than men that are the same age.

zonedin, that first one is a beautiful line and straight from the heart too. Second one's ok too :)

No we didn't. It's just lack of the time.
But we'll come back soon - I hope :)

rivercat said...

hope so too
and I know what you mean :)


You are there dot on your goal. Small but beautiful. Successfully telling what is not told.To see more with closed eyes infers subtle imagination.

rivercat said...

My UNIQUELY styled Wallpapers. During some ten years, I have developed an extremely complex and unimitable technique that should carry some interest of anyone pursuing a serious artistic ambition and expertise. And it's quantity as well: by now close to 5 000 wallpapers, all created by me. Why not tune in on my rapidly growing art blog? Its Copyright Anyone, as it SHOULD be for this genre!

In addition, on the long blogroll you may readily follow about 160 of the VERY BEST ART BLOGS in the world - and, indeed, if your own art blog is good enough, I will certainly add it, really boostin' it.

I run Deviant Art in parallell:

And I write poetry in several languages:


There's much in the world that you can't explain.
It's revealed for you to remember
by the whispering voice of a distant train
or a midnight rain in november.

Horizon within! You can always find
the keys to Enigma. Let's mention
one basic Truth: of spirited Mind
Is Nature naught but extension.

Internal expanses! In dreams, ridden
by fear and longing you roam
that deep Southeast in your soul hidden
...on your random journey back home.

Single Swingle


Casualidad sopla la sangre
de alguno señor desconocido
durante los pocos restantes
momentos del resplandor de faroles

que se vislumbran tras el follaje
flameando de las obsesiónes
igual efimero como gotas
del cinzano de la soledad –

En aquel tiempo me levanta
dentro uno incidente avejentado
que en seguida palidece
al camouflaje de abstraccion;

chica, nadie conoce que tus grisos
ojos significan aún; con todo
el sueño que hube evacuado
tu escudriñas nuevamente.

My Spanish poetry!



Un orage nocturne illmuna maintenant l'Amazonie, franchis les Andes, envoya des jeux de cartes gigantesques et frappantes en bas à la Pampa –

Puis: petit déjeuner à melon; café fumant !

À la bague du cigare tu lis, étonné: GÉOGRAPHIE.



Das Leben dergleichen Halbfaßung
der Welt wahr immer nicht wahr,
nicht wahr? Die fristlos Entlaßung
am Ende wird kaum wunderbar.

So laßen uns Menschlingen viele
besonders besonnene zum
Zeitweilegem Zeiten als Ziele
des Lebens halbfaßen darum.

Fremde Gedichte


We need a new analysis of probability. My hypothesis is that disorder is as constant as energy, since increasing material disorder, entropy, is counterbalanced by increasing structural regularity, symmetry. I tell you the Law of Entropy and the Law of Symmetry, ruling approximatively equal universal validity derive through bifurcation of the still more basic Law of Probability, that is, math, and rather simple math at that. Can you dig this?

hi and thanks, I chose the windor mirrow blog.
my philosophy is that i think there's too much to know besides what you can, so I just am intothe arts. I love science and philosophy but they didnt break my heart or make it skyrocket.
I save a lot of money on drugs this way and it may be a cop out and I could change mind some day but thats where im at today.
I ching is cool but it seems beyond my comprehension :)

love the poems and thoughts you have on everything. I will never understand how anyone can keep up so many blogs. Its nice to be reminded of the potential of the brain and body working so well together.
