What

o my soul s

O my soul
What curse is this? what
eternal
death will sing
sinking down down beneath the
dreadful silence O!

my soul

This hymn was singing in my mind yesterday.  I rearranged the words.

    Yesterday and your verse, both examples of what happens when religion becomes twisted and extremist. Your collage conjures real beauty from the chaos though.

      Just a response to the Brussels bombings…it seems everyone is beyond response, numb to yet more violence, which is too bad. “What Wondrous Love is This” is a beautiful hymn, but all I could hear in my mind was “sinking down, sinking down”…lots of unanswered questions. I have lots.

    Kerfe (may I ask about your name — it’s lovely — German? Scandinavian?) … I love this, the color, the verse/hymn (I hear it in my mind now, too), and collage, which is my favorite form of any kind of art, writing, etc. A perfect piece for the sad day.

    That verse is cool and there is something about that purple threading things together. That’s a thoughtful piece, Kerfe. The verse points to “curse” but the image is hopeful and light and not sinking–in fact, it is almost rising to me.

    Sort of strange how our pieces today go together in a weird way, do you see it?

    A perfect response…one that still leaves all the questions unanswered. It’s a crazy world we’re in now. Thankful for art.

    I love how you have evoked the hymn here. One of my favorites. I will listen for its echo in hope.
