The Tagores


Gaganendranath Tagore (1867—1938) painting of Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941).
Gaganendranath was Rabindranath's nephew.

Any room is an everywhere
Breathing in the spirit of the moment
Respecting its colours
Its tones
Its music

Any tree is a teacher
Watching
Listening for
The voices on the winds

Any journey is a chance
To bathe in the minds of
A Yeats
An Einstein
A Thomas Mann
A Gandhi

Any prize along the way is a
Time to give to
Others

In my coffee...


Hong Yi ~ Coffee Cup Stains Portrait
This portrait was inspired by Jay Chou's song/album Secret.
(Jay Chou now has a wax model at Madame Tussaud's mueum in Thailand.)
Her blog is Oh I See Red
She paints in unusual mediums and has a Master Of Architecture from the University of Melbourne.


In the coffee season
Your taste was warm
And lingering

I sipped
Smiling
Content in the
Flavour of
Your beauty

I drank my cup
Slowly
Sipping
The fragrance of
Our virtual heaven
Longing for the warmth
To last

But
Sadly 
You had finished yours
While it was hot


Huffington Post reported that she made a portrait from 750 pairs of socks

Two Waterfalls


Rafael Saldana (1930-2000) ~ Two Waterfalls
Rafael lived in Liffey, a hamlet in northern Tasmania, facing Dry's Bluff in the Western Tiers.
He enjoyed painting whimsical interpretations of his environment.
Many of his paintings are now available on postcards.
This is my photo of one of them.


Deep in a mossy gully
Where a waterfall
Spills
Her soul

My earth
Feels close
To you

Einstein


Givi Sproshvili b.1940 in Georgia ~ Einstein

Think Einstein
Think relativity
A popular
Stereotypical 
Liaison

But Einstein was more

He was a man 
Re-framing identity

Cultural
Spiritual 
Zionism
An injection of humanity

As if
His life was
Not chained to Jewish politics
(He lived in  
Germany
Italy
Switzerland and
The United States)
But about any
Universal
Unfettered
Life force
Connections

A man with his
Pipe of peace
Leaning
Moving
Dreaming
Forward
