All I Have Are Ashes #Akhmatova #poet #societalcancer

  I’ve cried for seventeen long months, I’ve called you for your home, I fell at hangmen’ feet – not once, My womb and hell you’re from. All has been mixed up for all times, And now I can’t define Who is a beast or man, at last, And when they’ll kill my son. There’re […]

What of Life? #questions #poetry #photography

Restore This… #poetry #photography

Gazing at my hands pointless disarray all that I’ve created has futilely slipped away… Focussing on the blot claims to be my stain remove this from my being that I might live again… Reaching up toward Heaven beautiful dark expanse hold me in your power away from death’s final dance… Phtograph “The Climb” L.

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" - George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their tabloid news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting - this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
