Cast Away's dream


Ten thousand crosses and ten thousand horses how different are they, power and subjection are one and the same, riches and lack how different they seem, only open your mind and how clearly you would see that ten thousand horses are ten thousand crosses and power and subjection are one singularity that riches and lack are every man's crack. Only open your mind and see, that all men are rich just as all are poor only they do not know this until all time is gone. One lacks a penny and another his health, one lacks a lover and another a brother. How silly this journey, how silly it is that all men are doomed to die chasing after a wind. it is only the blind who would look and not see, as is the fate of the living to hound and not find: what penance we have to face for a sin long lost in time but we look and we do not see all the sages of time, we look but still all is blurry, all is blurry like a cast-away’s dream.

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
