Description: A poem of longing love, but not as one might assume as in romantic. For the last 2 years because of bureaucracy, I've not been able to see my son, which is a tremendous hardship for us both. This is the poem I wrote for him. The photo is by me, made during a wander through the Neu Kirchenhof von St. Nikolai & St. Marien http://redhaircrow.com/2013/06/29/peace-verdigris-red-haircrow/

“You don't have to disrespect and insult others simply to hold your own ground. If you do, that shows how shaky your own position is.”
Red Haircrow

“I welcome questions. I hate assumptions.”

“Dance above the surface of the world. Let your thoughts lift you into creativity that is not hampered by opinion.”
Red Haircrow

“The universe is full of dead people who lived by assumption.”
Alan Dean Foster, Splinter of the Mind's Eye

“Do you remember the sight we saw, my soul,
that soft summer morning
round a turning in the path,
the disgusting carcass on a bed scattered with stones,
its legs in the air like a woman in need
burning its wedding poisons
like a fountain with its rhythmic sobs,
I could hear it clearly flowing with a long murmuring sound,
but I touch my body in vain to find the wound.
I am the vampire of my own heart,
one of the great outcasts condemned to eternal laughter
who can no longer smile.
Am I dead?
I must be dead.”
Charles Baudelaire

“Children must early learn the the beauty of generosity. They are taught to give what they prize most, that they may taste the happiness of giving.”
Charles Alexander Eastman

“Arrakis teaches the attitude of the knife - chopping off what's incomplete and saying: 'Now, it's complete because it's ended here.'

Red Haircrow Working on getting a story ready for release next week. It's titled "The Caravaggio and the Swan". Tentative blurb, though I'll probably have a few versions of it anyway:

"Despite a long-time, loving partner, Michael becomes enamored with a beautiful young man online, corresponding fervently, soon inviting him into their home. But he learns a choice must be made between "The Caravaggio and the Swan", and it is not his to make."

A bittersweet tale, which seems to be my preference...

Red Haircrow The Past

Thou unrelenting Past!
Strong the barriers round thy dark domain,
And fetters, sure and fast,
Hold all that enter thy unbreathing reign.

Far in thy realm withdrawn,
Old empires sit in sullenness and gloom,
And glorious ages gone
Lie deep within the shadow of thy womb.

--William Cullen Bryant


message 10: by Red

Red Haircrow Are you one of those people who use the "f" word to refer to gay people, even playing with your friends? Some of us don't like it, and feel it is no better than other racist terms, even if it used with people who don't mind.

Red Haircrow Posted a couple of comments on Christopher Koehler's blog post at Queer Magazine Online: "Strange Bedfellows: The Media, Women and M/M Fiction Romance".

The article addresses the topic of heterosexual women writing m/m fiction from an objective perspective, as I did in my article "Female Writers of M/M: My Thoughts".


message 1: by Red

Red Haircrow Researching for a novel project, I got carried away this weekend while investigating history books which would assist me in creating the correct "feel" and setting for my story.

Physical mailbox is rather small. With the amount of books I've purchased, and they'll all be arriving at random times, I probably should be more vigilant than usual waiting for the post worker so they won't be overburdened with packages/boxes.
