Imperial Dragon

July 17, 2012

 

Note from the poet: This is a Japanese form called “tanka”, meaning “short poem”, similar to haiku.  Typical subject matter: nature or strong emotions.  The mythic dragon appears in many cultures, but as opposed to the usually evil European depiction, the Eastern dragon denotes strength, power and good luck.

    “Leaving fierce joy in your wake”. Oh, you’ve brought me to tears again, Annehedonia! You are so gifted and I feel so blessed to be able to be a recipient of such beauty. Wow! I never knew my love for Adam would bring me into oneness with so many beautiful, brilliant and gifted people! I feel totally blessed and blissed!

    Thank you all for reading and for commenting ~ an experience as intense and significant as Adam Lambert begs to be shared! And thanks to Juneau who did the graphic font & placement of the poem.

    I’ve got a habit of coming here & blathering, I know! But I just wanted to comment on the photo: Professional photographer Christie Goodwin, who shot the show, tweeted this photo to Shoshanna Stone with the message that she’d almost deleted it, but stopped when she’d realized that there was just “something about it”. I agree! Most often it’s an image from a still photo or video of Adam that whispers (or shouts) inspiration to me. Like any art, photography can certainly never be objective, and always carries the artist’s outlook on the world – their point of view – into the work. With some photos, there’s content that supercedes that – an extra “something” universal that grabs your emotions and/or your intellect. This is one of those photos, at least for me.
