ETERNITY (2)


Heaven's prayers and Mary's merged to a far eternity that was speaking to me. From then on I kept hearing poetry's voice as if coming from depths behind our temporariness. It connects the races of mankind. It reveals the essence of our life. It uplifts our eyes above the appearance of things. It allows us to look into the spectacle of salvation itself.

Anton van Duinkerken



But it is the province of religion, of philosophy, of pure poetry only, to go beyond life, beyond time, into eternity.

Alfred de Vigny

Its unmade sheets are the dawn of things

PHILTRE


Past and future monopolize the poet’s sensory and intellectual faculties, detached from the immediate spectacle. These two philtres become utterly clear the moment one stops being hypnotized by the cloudy precipitate constituted by the world of today.

CRISIS


Poetry is the language of a state of crisis.

Stéphane Mallarmé

BABYLON


Every poem is a love poem. It's the reason a man & a woman were made & why poetry fell to us from the gardens of Babylon, to guide us on the broken wall from here to there.

John Feddeler
