    Calvino Rabeni: Are we expecting Sylectra tonight?
    Lucinda Lavender: Maybe she is a little late:)
    Hana Furlough: I think she's supposed to be here...
    Agatha Macbeth: I'll check the mail, just in case ;-)
    Hana Furlough: thanks, ag
    Agatha Macbeth: Hm, doesn't look like she's said she's not coming
    Hana Furlough: Okay, well maybe she can join us later
    Hana Furlough: shall we get started?
    Lucinda Lavender: yes sure..
    Hana Furlough: OK great
    Agatha Macbeth: Fire away
    Hana Furlough: I wanted to just make a few comments about what has happened in Japan over the past week
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Lucinda Lavender: nodding...
    Hana Furlough: Of course we've all been watching the news and feeling sad and wondering if there is something we can do
    Hana Furlough: In keeping with the long pre-modern Japanese tradition of composing poems and dedicating them to the gods and the buddhas
    Hana Furlough: I'd like to suggest that we dedicate our sequence tonight --- and our whole session --- to those suffering as a result of these successive disasters
    Agatha Macbeth: Agreed Hana, thank you
    Lucinda Lavender: nice yes
    Hana Furlough: Excellent, thanks
    Agatha Macbeth: I'm gonna grab that log, it's driving me nuts
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Hana Furlough: Haha, thanks Ag!
    Hana Furlough: Does anyone have a poem that they want to share?

    Agatha Macbeth: Well, i wasn't 100% sure this *was* the poetry session
    Agatha Macbeth: ...so I'll just listen if you don't mind
    Hana Furlough: lol
    Sylectra Darwin: Hi All, sorry I am late :)
    Hana Furlough: totally fine
    Agatha Macbeth: Hi Syl :)
    Hana Furlough: hello Sylectra!
    Calvino Rabeni: Good evening Sylectra :)
    Sylectra Darwin: good evening!
    Agatha Macbeth: I just collared the log, but you can have it back :)
    Lucinda Lavender: :) Slyectra:)
    Sylectra Darwin: Cool, thanks for grabbing it
    Agatha Macbeth: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: luci likes this term collaring the log:)
    Agatha Macbeth: Sometimes it collars me
    Hana Furlough: :)
    Calvino Rabeni: About Japan, I can only use my imagination to know what it might like to be there .. but I found this blog touching and it reflected a different side of things ...
    Calvino Rabeni: (for later I suppose .. I recommend reading "Letter from Sendai")
    Hana Furlough: excellent, thanks Cal
    Lucinda Lavender: nice Cal:)
    Agatha Macbeth: Good heavens
    Agatha Macbeth: 'You can escape if you pay the bus fare'
    Agatha Macbeth: Great
    Hana Furlough: I love this image of the solid mountains of Sendai
    Hana Furlough: and, of course, "This wave of birthing (worldwide) is hard, and yet magnificent."
    Sylectra Darwin: nods
    Calvino Rabeni: I'm curious whether there's a flavor of shinto type animism in the response to the disaster .. that would in my opinion give it some interesting depth
    Hana Furlough: i haven't heard anything in particular about the disaster
    Agatha Macbeth: Could be Cal...
    Hana Furlough: but animism in japan is very perceptible in ordinary times
    Calvino Rabeni: I remember the feeling in Thailand after the tsunami there ... an extra awareness of ghosts and a change in the prayer habits
    Hana Furlough: interesting
    Calvino Rabeni: Maybe the oni and kappa are seen as active now, or other such beings
    Hana Furlough: i'll look into it
    Hana Furlough: and let you know what i find
    Agatha Macbeth: I'm afraid Shinto isn't something I know a lot about :(
    Sylectra Darwin: does anyone have haiku to share on the subject?
    Calvino Rabeni: Thanks Hana
    Calvino Rabeni: I'm not up on Japanese poetry ... Can offer a Western one though
    Sylectra Darwin: please
    Agatha Macbeth: Fire away Cal :)
    Calvino Rabeni:

    Ask Me
    by William Stafford

    Some time when the river is ice ask me
    mistakes I have made. Ask me whether
    what I have done is my life. Others
    have come in their slow way into
    my thought, and some have tried to help
    or to hurt: ask me what difference
    their strongest love or hate has made.

    I will listen to what you say.
    You and I can turn and look
    at the silent river and wait. We know
    the current is there, hidden; and there
    are comings and goings from miles away
    that hold the stillness exactly before us.
    What the river says, that is what I say.

    Agatha Macbeth: Wow, nice
    Hana Furlough: "Ask me whether what I have done is my life."
    Calvino Rabeni smiles at that
    Agatha Macbeth: Well I for one hope not ;-)
    Hana Furlough: Ahhh but it's an interesting question
    Sylectra Darwin: "We know the current is there, hidden; and there are comings and goings from miles away that hold the stillness exactly before us." - love it.
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Calvino Rabeni: I like the image of sitting side by side with someone, feeling the motion of the invisible powerful forces
    Agatha Macbeth: Definitely
    Lucinda Lavender: nodding...

    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Susan
    iwandertoo Resident: waves
    Hana Furlough: Hi Susan
    iwandertoo Resident: hi
    Sylectra Darwin: how are you?
    Lucinda Lavender: Hi Susan...was just looking for poems
    iwandertoo Resident: :)
    Sylectra Darwin: I found a haiku written about the tsunami
    Hana Furlough: great
    Hana Furlough: !
    Sylectra Darwin: found on a blog: by: Rob - Pearldiver Miyagi harbor Home of family friends No fish here today
    Hana Furlough: wow
    Agatha Macbeth: Aw, that's sweet
    Hana Furlough: here's more haiku written after the quake:
    Hana Furlough: http://hailhaiku.wordpress.com/
    Hana Furlough: (actually a linked verse sequence)
    Sylectra Darwin: I just love this part: Again and again from far across the still pond one black wave
    Sylectra Darwin: very chilling
    Hana Furlough: i know....
    Calvino Rabeni: ooh
    Hana Furlough: it's really moving
    Lucinda Lavender: yes...
    Hana Furlough: also: "Our little world ??? from it, we search for meaning in the spring stars"
    Agatha Macbeth: hm, yes
    Sylectra Darwin: I remember seeing the wave in the video footage and it was so shockingly black.
    iwandertoo Resident: "Which is the house their friends lived in? the couple disputes" similar to holocaust poetry
    Hana Furlough: can you share an example susan?
    Sylectra Darwin: nods
    iwandertoo Resident: how one remembers
    iwandertoo Resident: and fighting for the memory
    Calvino Rabeni: Hmm, Susan, ?
    Calvino Rabeni: "fighting for the memory"?

    iwandertoo Resident: "the couple disputes"...to never forget and to ever be able to represent your perspective when face with a devastating absence
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes Susan, I understand what you mean
    Hana Furlough: can you say more, susan?
    iwandertoo Resident: i think this quote conveys it
    iwandertoo Resident:

    Once I sat on the steps by a gate at David's Tower. I placed my two heavy baskets at my side. A group of tourists was standing around their guide and I became their target marker."You see that man with the baskets?Just right of his head there's an arch from the Roman period. Just right of his head." "But he's moving, he's moving!" I said to myself: redemption will come only if their guide tells them, "You see that arch from the Roman period? It's not important: but next to it, left and down a bit, there sits a man who's bought fruit and vegetables for his family".

    iwandertoo Resident: Yehuda Amichai
    Agatha Macbeth smiles
    Hana Furlough: hmmmm
    Hana Furlough: i don't get it
    iwandertoo Resident: to survive...to be a witness
    iwandertoo Resident: he survived the holocaust...it is the living one should pay close attention to and how they have lived
    Sylectra Darwin: A heavy burden...that of the witness to tragedy.
    iwandertoo Resident: yes
    Hana Furlough: ah!
    Hana Furlough: so this poem is from the holocaust, then?
    iwandertoo Resident: Yes, it his commentary as he observed how others observed him. "If they only knew..."
    Hana Furlough: wonderful
    iwandertoo Resident: honor this moment now...in this present context
    Hana Furlough: yes, it truly must be that way
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello 0 :)
    Sylectra Darwin: Hi OOO!
    Hana Furlough: Hi 000!
    iwandertoo Resident: waves
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh, that's something Alf and me were fooling with earlier
    Sylectra Darwin: smiles
    Lucinda Lavender: HI O:)
    Sylectra Darwin: a pink box atop a box with your pic?
    Agatha Macbeth: Have you touched the pink box?
    Agatha Macbeth: Ha ha
    Sylectra Darwin: hehe!
    Agatha Macbeth: Now you see why it's an egobox
    Sylectra Darwin: That's bound to be a popular conversation piece at parties.
    Hana Furlough: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Wouldn't surprise me Syl
    Sylectra Darwin: Put that script in an ice scupture and you're set :)
    Agatha Macbeth: I'll get together with alf again and sort something out :p
    Sylectra Darwin: hehe
    Sylectra Darwin: I hope this shows up on the log!
    Agatha Macbeth: Dunno if the Recorder picks all this up or not
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes!

    Actually, the Recorder does not record the statements of scripts (this one called the Egobox), but I recovered the lines from my chat window.

    Calvino Rabeni:  I see - An Electro-Bard, capable of writing on-the-spot lyric odes to all who pass!
    Agatha Macbeth: Indeed Cal
    oO0Oo Resident drops brilliance, to see what is left
    Calvino Rabeni: I recommend those lines be amalgamated into the "Poem of the Evening"
    Agatha Macbeth: Or the Poem of Ego
    Calvino Rabeni: Thinks of the title "Stories that Could Be True" (after a collection by William Stafford)

    Give Back the Human
    by Sankichi Toge

    Give back my father, give back my mother;
    Give grandpa back, grandma back;
    Give me my sons and daughters back.
    Give me back myself.
    Give back the human race.
    As long as this life lasts, this life,
    Give back peace
    That will never end.

    Calvino Rabeni:

    An asian Man was walking along a trail
    trailed by, some 20 paces behind,  a Woman
    trailed by, some 20 paces behind, a black and white Cat
    the Man called to the Woman - Come On!
    the Woman called to the Cat - Come On!
    the Cat lay down on the trail and rolled over casually
    the Woman jumped up and down
          and made a running movement with her feet
    the Cat jumped up and made a running movement with his feet
    the walk continued along the trail
    on a nearby house a flag pole was flying a violin


    oO0Oo Resident: lol
    Sylectra Darwin: Wow that was kind of Twin Peaks.
    Sylectra Darwin: Well, I am tired and must go to bed.

    Paradise Tennant: smiles at japan .. :)
    oO0Oo Resident: :)
    oO0Oo Resident: not a small thing... a smile
    Calvino Rabeni: Somehow the Acts of Nature don't weigh nearly as heavily on the soul as the Acts of Humans
    Paradise Tennant: yes our thoughts our emotions I think if not directly create our worlds they certainly furnish them ..
    oO0Oo Resident: because we divide ourselves from nature, when in fact we are nature too
    Paradise Tennant: nods
    oO0Oo Resident: how does saffron tea weigh on a soul?
    Calvino Rabeni: pleasantly
    oO0Oo Resident: or spring larking pups?

    Paradise Tennant: smiles again ..both I think are good for one's soul

    Paradise Tennant: a kind of global aftershock .. of the horror ?
    Lucinda Lavender: thought perhaps with the world situations that it spills over ...
    Lucinda Lavender: hard to know what to say about it but more impatience and anxiety
    Lucinda Lavender: anxiety
    oO0Oo Resident: hey Aph :)
    Paradise Tennant: well it throws into high relief what little bits of fluff we are .. was thinking we are almost like a mold .. one good boot scrape and it is all toast ..
    Paradise Tennant: hiya aph :) gtsy
    oO0Oo Resident: I wrote a little poem
    Lucinda Lavender: well put...
    Paradise Tennant: smiles and listens
    oO0Oo Resident:

    skinny up the flagpole and touch the violin
    for the view is vast, and your smile
    is a lighthouse furthered on
    by giddy-up cats enthused by spring sprung feet
    so leap it across oceans
    youthful verve radiate out, that flapping signet
    touch what in fact wavers there
    sending unseen to to the resonant
    give the violin your being
    and your saffron smile will rocket without knowing where, but with care
    just give, and give
    touching that uppermost flag

    Aphrodite Macbain: heysam, paradise, luci. Cal

    I visited Anne Thomas' blog. She's a warm and heartfelt writer and I am Glad to have found her! Her "Letter from Sendai" waS picked up or mentioned on the sites of many news organizations. If you have time, read her short bio on Ode Magazine - http://www.odemagazine.com/p2/Anne%20Thomas. I love what she said about peeling away layers of herself.
