Zyrynology: Of Sleepless Nights

or Counting the Raindrops


...in the quiet darkness of the night

when dreams melt into nothing

and a pallid void fills in

I count the imaginary raindrops

that fall in slow motion in my restless mind

                                                                          in total silence

like tears of the unknown

                                           perhaps

these are the tears of my evaporated dreams...

As with your accompanying narrative, VZ, these do not seem to be "happy" drops.

Why, I wonder, do the raindrops have a melancholy aspect?
vz-nostalgia: Ray, would you mind, if on one of these blue days I borrow your rose-colored glasses. smile

Viktor, tears can go two ways....tears of sadness, hurt, anger.....tears can also mean happiness, joy.
I like the tears of joy.
This is a wonderfull capture though
vz-nostalgia: once I wrote these lines:
"..the tears of joy would not be sweet
without salty tears of sorrow… "
And I still stand behind this statement. smile

These are beads spilled out that will be gathered and put into an alabaster bottle, Viktor...where they will be safe and sound. Precious in their own right.
vz-nostalgia: Nah, Ginnie. Let them fall. They are on a suicide mission. Let them fall in slow motion. They are the kamikaze from heaven. smile

Being now in a more serene mood I have to agree with all three comments- with a look at the plenty of beautifully glittering raindrops as if they were transformed into pearls or- in a kind of surrealistic impulse- into hunderds of eyes from all over the world- friendly, lovely eyes, please, no big brothers are watching you... SC could be such a gathering of many, many eyes, and some of them have now looked at your impressive pic accompanied by poetic words!
vz-nostalgia: How funny. I just disagreed with all three comments above you agreed with, Ms. Philine. smile
I love what you saw here. A myriad of eyes. It did not occur to me to look at it this way. It's so surreal. smile

These could also be eyes. To awaken from imagination is truly a death. They are so alert. Lovely image.
vz-nostalgia: To compare those droplets with eyes...it has never occurred to me, Ms. Jamoula. I like it. The spirit of Dali is standing behind. smile
That's an amazing image VZ: the quality of the light is intriguing
vz-nostalgia: Intrigue is my middle name, Chris. In Russian, of course. smile

aye, i saw
the borning
of infinite eyes
vz-nostalgia: :
...as far as
your eyes
can embrace,
the field of
the infinite eyes
you can see...
As I look at this it is raining here, but they are dull grey raindrops running down the window. The sky is leaden. Your raindrops are alive. They are not like the tears running down my window...I have taken out my camera an photographed them.

Have a good Easter
vz-nostalgia: "...the tears running down my window". I really like that phrase, Bill. I wish I would come up with this title for my earlier post "In A Sentimental Mood"
http://nostalgia.shutterchance.com/photoblog/Zyrynology:_In_a_Sentimental_Mood_/
Happy Easter to you too, my friend.

"What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
Like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore--
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over--
like a syrupy sweet?
Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.
Or does it explode?"
--Langston Hughes"
vz-nostalgia: :
It explodes.
It explodes into hundreds of droplets.
Each with a staring,
non-blinking and
piercing through eyes.

Crikey, that's a deep comment - but absolutely perfect for this picture smile
vz-nostalgia: Ha. You took me by surprise, Ms. Ellie. I had to dive into the depth of my dictionaries for this one. Looks like no one uses the word "crikey" in the US. Purely British linguistic invention. smile

So Beautiful, makes me want to reach out and touch them, I imagin them swirling into one large mass at the slightest interuption
vz-nostalgia: They will swirl, Ms. Kelly, if you slightly blow at the very edge. Got to be careful, though, it might suck you in. smile When this happens, stop counting the droplets, you are asleep. smile

I am thinking caviar my Russian friend.
vz-nostalgia: Yep. Go ahead and think about caviar. Thinking about caviar is all you can afford on the architect's salary.
Wonderful one Victor !
vz-nostalgia: I have to agree with you, Zeb. smile

Im subjugued by the drops size and as near they are form each other. I wonder how the drops are fixed? great picture
vz-nostalgia: The droplets are not fixed, Sune. They are floating in my mind. smile Nah, just kidding. They are held together by a spider web that is so tiny, it's not even visible.

...or all the tears for just one shattered dream.
Very emotive and very beautiful Viktor.
vz-nostalgia: The dream has been destroyed and nothing can be done to put the shattered pieces back together. It time to dream another dream, Ms. Pixie. smile
