On the coast of Texas
Between Mobile and Galveston there is
A great big garden overgrown with roses
It also contains a villa
Which is one great rose
Often a woman walks
In the garden all alone
And when I pass on the lime-tree-bordered road
We look at each other
Since this woman belongs to the Mennonite sect
Her rose trees have no buds and her clothes no buttons
There are two missing from my jacket
This lady and I are almost of the same religion.
by Guillaume Apollinaire
"There can be a truth to face today, but it’s an empowering one."
Leo daily horoscope, April 2nd.
The problem I face in resisting temptation
Is fear it may never pass again.
But if that was my Season in Hell,
is this my Illumination?
Marinated to tender in Eastern rooms,
by barred appropriation -
So if that was my Season in Hell,
Is this my Illumination?
Sea air burns my blistered lungs
Before it only soothed - (only soothed)!
Perhaps it merely moved.
This flight I mistook for tranquility
Still wonder however could this be?
It’s no surprise (time after time) truth’s not readily clear to me.
But today I wait no longer
For it has already come
And if that was my Season in Hell
Is my this Illumination?

And if a song is simply gaining Your heart with non-predicted grace, All vanish -- only they are reigning: The stars, the singer, and the space!
