Prospect Calendar

Fall of The Tyrants

Withdraw

Falun Gong practiced by a 100 million in China

Before the persecution

Began in July 1999

Thousands have been killed for a belief

To be true, to be kind, to endure

The CCP will not be

So withdraw and withdraw and withdraw

Falun Gong is Good

I am telling you now clearly

Let truth be understood

The fabricated lies on TV

Thousands have been killed for a belief

To be true, to be kind, to endure

The CCP will not be

So withdraw and withdraw and withdraw

Poem: Fashion Threads

Fashion Threads

I write of the things that connect us
Words on threads
Pathways in the garden
We are closer than you think
Though my travels have been
Long and far
I’ll soon return when
The harvest is ripe

Poem: Back On Track

My spine a book let me tell you
There was the fracture of my back
Dislocated from past I travel
Back on track through jointed map
circuitous circuitry

I look behind my shoulder more clearly
The guitar strung, this railway track
the chords to play and move you
The towers and the cities
As the column is read
Newspapers, website, book.

The Fifties

As mammoth as auntie was she was still old-fashioned, her vintage music collection was as mushy as the flavours of the 70s, she feasted on. Her views were still as old as the subcontinent and her pride made her belong to the past, not the present. She was in a deep old rut and there she wished to be in all her passion and heavy fervour. A stick in the mud, you try to wave in the air. The clockwork precision. Rambunctious by the heavy cemented pillars. I’ll try something new if variety is the spice of life, who am I , not just a race, I wouldn’t fight with you, Old Auntie, dexterity eludes the slow moving elephant of your nostalgia and undoes you.

I can’t remember, but that keeps us casting ourselves out there far from your enclosure of space, the fresh new waters.

If you are going to draw on 70s music, let’s make something new of it. Check out this tune by AZ called World Don’t Stop. I am particularly fond of this remix version, I hope you like it too.

The Eaghams Weekly: Poetry: Han Xin’s Quest

Han Xin's Quest



By The Eaghams 

Was Dante's journey through
 Hell to redeem his shadow?
 Souls bunched together by demons
 Fervour, anger and lust whip
 The heart and relieve it's agony
 Through waves of elation
 Amidst the purification good
 Han Xin crawls before them
 Open and aboveboard the open road
 His benevolent heart for all to see
 In the interim years before
 The truth is revealed aplenty
 There is calm amidst storm
 Harvests and laughter in the garden
 That he first saw in Peruvian Wild
 Where Pandora's Box had opened
 They go out ahead of him

Poetry: The Things We Call Life

The Things We Call Life



By The Eaghams 

The boat it's sail follows the breeze
 It's flow
 To show us which way to go
 The flame kindled by the woods
 We call home of a flowering
 Forest gate where Henry VIII
 His name a gate came to hunt and play
 The annual rings of loyalty
 The populous of trees a generation
 Take us to the Tavern or Caravanserai
 Of the Good Man's Poetry
 Taking my coffee at the Station Cafe
 Writing these songs horizon of harbour
 Reading the epic verse of Derek Walcott
 Were philosophers seeking the basics
 Were writers penning the dynasty
 Of all that's related -
 Of all that congruent, straight up.

Poetry: Pilgrims Progress

Pilgrims Progress



By The Eaghams 

Looking out my window canvas frame
 I set out in the world of Pilgrims Progress
 Of mirrors and the characters of January dawn
 I paint a picture got it down in sights and sounds
 Reflecting the timeless flowing stream
 Flaneurs of our country observed
 The rocks from the mountain deep
 Unconcerned with how I measure up
 To a ruler in ruins of a great house
 It's key there's been doors in the hall
 To get past what we used to know
 Grounded before the ivory towers
 On the chessboard they stay
 Hands on the clock
 So no looking over our shoulders
 Run the leg of the journey
 We dont need to hold arms
 Eyes on our vision we hold fast to
 There's been bridges
 With sheaves of harvest
 as our rails
 Over the seas they run across
 The stream leads to the river
 The river to the sea
 The sea to the ocean
 Love my lineage to bits
 In all it's fragments
 That's why I know
 Were one tribe

The Eaghams Weekly: The Thirties

The Thirties



By The Eaghams 

When you're thirty five, you've traveled far and wide and read broadly, made some progress in a career, had a relationship or two, listened to some cool artists and bands, watched some classic movies. Maybe you've calmed down and drink Nescafe, (as the advertisements expect you when you reach your 30s) and go to restaurants, have a good mate from the early years - you reap what you sow. Maybe you're at a crossroads, maybe the road is level.

Maybe, the clubs are something you can revisit. Maybe the old group of your mates have scattered. Some married, some abroad, some doing new careers.

Maybe what worked for you was trial and error, and in your experimentation you went too far, run-ins with the law, or perhaps transcendence of some kind. Maybe conformity was your thing, to watch and follow suit, and not to set yourself so free you'd wind up having to define yourself anew.

Maybe you're wiser, maybe more reluctant, maybe more steadfast.

Maybe you don't need the dramas of your 20s, that art would do your sense of perspective good.

Maybe that although you'd been there and done that and got the t-shirt, it didn't portend anything too much as you were onto getting the whole suit and the three piece.

Maybe the concerts were a fire you could burn again in and experience didn't get in the way of whats new.

Maybe it's not that were thirty five that makes us more cautious but the playing out of events in our lives, the betrayals and dishonor.

Maybe others hardships made us steer clear and withdraw, maybe all the hype wasn't what it was supposed to be for, and withdrawing some hasn't been so bad if it's peace that we want, at least some of the time.

Maybe the incessant purchases of mp3s each week makes our jobs worthwhile, for the days off, the days of our lives.

Maybe it's our little obsessions that makes life sweeter, the being all dressed up is somewhere to go and if nothing happens maybe it does, but so slowly that you've already done so much, and culture our wardrobe.
