Response to Omaha Steve (Original post)

Sat Aug 23, 2014, 04:14 PM

29. this is so goddamned sad, Steve

. . . few words.

My thanks to you for the time you spent with us here . . . so many wishes for much more time for you to spend anywhere in the future.

You'll be damn well missed here, that's for certain.

. . . and the four winds we know blow away.


Some come to laugh their past away
Some come to make it just one more day
Whichever way your pleasure tends
if you plant ice you're gonna harvest wind
("Who sows wind reaps the hurricane.")

Roll away... the dew . . .

In Franklin's Tower the four winds sleep (a lighthouse
and the four winds become sleeping hounds,
(the night watch) worn out by the events
of such a metaphorical day
)
Like four lean hounds the lighthouse keep
Wildflower seed in the sand and wind
(a 'wildflower
seed' in its adventures in the wind
)
May the four winds blow you home again
(satisfying closure and an opening door on other possibilities)

by Robert Hunter (w/his own annotations in parentheses)
