Letters to the Moon Pt. 3 (Scandinavian Dream) appears on the album Sacred Paths by Asia Jazz Project featuring Molina Soleil & Aju (2009)
I was on a train from Copenhagen, Denmark to Berlin, Germany when I wrote this poem. There was a lot of movement that day, in the waters and in the sky. The colors held me. I watched everything in silence, breathing it all in until it was time to write…
I find it hard to write at the moment. The words do not come easy now. By contrast I was in a zone at the time I wrote these Letters to the Moon. I had a lot of ideas and I was heavy on passion, hungry to create. I consider these Letters to be some of the best poetry I’ve ever written.
Those moments ebb and flow. I don’t accept the idea of writer’s block, but at the same time creative energy is circumstantial. Mental stagnation reflects physical stagnation. As a writer you have to remain open and ready to put your ideas in motion when the moment is ripe.
“Until then, I write of you, hovering over brick paths peacefully, humming dreams of tomorrow until the day that I come home. To taste the color of your mouth. To smell the sweet scent of your flow. To get lost in you. Again.”
