One for danimik and delph_ambi here me thinks. I took this picture earlier this evening. If it inspires a poem or piece of prose, it would be brilliant if you guys joined in on here. We could put it into the Sensitize e-zine as a collaborative project when that side of things comes about. Wotcha reckon?



Very warm and peaceful day and night here. Chilled out and happy 8) ...

Very atmospheric photo. I'll let you know if I come up with any poetry/prose to go with it.

Don't know if it really fits, but here's one, hot off the press. :)


UP RIVER

heading inland, up river
leaving...

leaving
smoke blackened calumny
rank ogres tower blocks
round the clock fights
all night killing lost time
spending life spent and left
in the mire of this city

heading inland
up river to mist hills blue forests
where once the saint spoke with angels
fleet angels flow river fast flow past the angels
leaving the saint far behind

leave An Feabhail and head for mountains
where blue greens the silvery source
seek the stream that takes you beneath
watch as waves catch you
turn you into a slippery thing
that slides between water white water
slip through churning foam slipslipslip
sink deep sink down become fish become eel stream thing
swim laugh breathe swimswimswim...

heading inland, up river

Feedback for Delph on her poem; Up River...

Postby Louis P. Burns aka Lugh » Sun Aug 05, 2007 7:56 pm

Yip :D

That works for me Delph. I love the way you have included the An Feabhail (Estuary of the lip). You also mention angels and saints. We're no angels :wink: but there is a long heritage link to Colmcille (Dove of the Church) / St. Columba whose disciples went on to write the Book of Kells. The 'cille' bit of Colmcille is pronounced 'keel', not seel/ceel which many backpackers and tourists have assumed. Easy mistake I guess...

Derry/Londonderry, my hometown is also known as Doire Colmcille (Doire pronounced durrugh ~ roughly lol). Colmcille / St. Columba founded his first monastery here in 546AD. Recently, there have been a few plans to have some sort of giant statue of Colmcille either in the middle of the river or on its' bank so that anyone visiting the city can see it. I personally think that's a daft idea, but tourism being what tourism is, it will probably come to pass (sigh).

You're also bang-on-the-nose about eels. Slippery lil feckers. The River Foyle is where salmon come to spawn after swimming the Atlantic Ocean from Canada. Sea trout are also a common fish here. As a lad, I fished the River Foyle, always hopeful of catching a salmon. No chance! Dip yer line in the Foyle and if you don't catch a condom or Wellington boot, you'll definitely catch an eel. We used to give them to an old geezer called Willie McCloskey who would slice and fry them up for his dogs. He also ate them himself. Flukes, or flounders - a kind of plaice are also pretty abundant in the River Foyle although it's a brave person who eats them :shock: ...

The Foyle is a tidal river and this means we have loads of other marine life. This is thankfully because the river has been allowed to clean up and there are a lot of activists and campaigners here who protect the wildlife. We even get porpoises and seals right up here in the city and I have seen them many times. In 1978 (I think) we had a killer whale which we nicknamed Dopey Dick. Poor animal got trapped, ate all the fish, got distressed and eventually beached him/herself at Portrush (I may be wrong on this point. Many like to believe Dopey Dick made it back to the pod and open ocean). There are herons and seagulls aplenty too...

^ Oh gawd look. I've gone on and on and on :roll: ... I really must install a shepherd's staff complete with hook that comes onstage when I'm waffling and roughly pokes me in the ribs or grabs me into the wings. I could suggest you complain to management about all this text, but that's me and I refuse to fire myself, especially on a Sunday, so there. Nyer :P ...

I will link Diarmuid to your poem in this thread and we will get back to you within the next few days to keep you updated. As far as I am concerned, this is a winner and will become part of our first edition of Sensitize :) ...

Oh yeah. I sent you a private message on Friday and an email today. There's no rush to answer them but could you take a gander at them please? We'll also be in touch with both Mike and yourself to chin-wag about creating proper passports/avatars for you guys. That also goes for all other active members on here...

Nice one Delph. Thanks mate :D ...
