Blues For a New Age

As Homo sapiens continues its evolutionary transition to perception of an ever broader range of the light spectrum

New one-syllable words for the color blue:

prist
sweem
bloof

New two-syllable words for the color blue:

prinkle
lushie

And going forward, acceptable general substitutions for the word blue shall include “misunderstood” and/or “snowy owl.”

5 X 7 watercolor and haiku by Sabine Miller, 2017

The unconscious mind is decidedly simple, unaffected, straightforward, and honest. It hasn’t got all of this facade, this veneer of what we call adult culture. It’s rather simple, rather childish. It’s direct and free.

 — Milton H. Erikson

This is a true revolution, Poetic first, because it denies poetry by transcending it. The arrangement as a poem is banished in favor of the automatic text, the dictation of the unconscious, the dream narrative. No concern for art, for beauty. Those are paltry goals, unworthy of attention. The poet’s soul is what it is.

Maurice Nadeau,  The History of Surrealism

 

Does the ocean have a soul?
          All the children tell the same story.
