From Stardust to Steal My Girl 

Sorry Joksters the mood was set by One Direction 

Now, I'm not a 1 Direction fan, but this video...! 


Stardust (poem)


Leave it to stardust this moment explain
Why all which once was is lost in your eyes
A wish to attain enchantment’s domain
Each breath of my heart in ecstasy lies
-
Leave it to stardust my feelings express
Endless and ever are pathways they climb
Once whispers shout yes as dreams they caress
Echoes of romance halt passage of time
-
Reason and meaning fragrances in air
Source of all of this yet unwritten song
Ever would declare what two lovers share
And ever’s rains is where we should belong
-
Leave it to stardust this blessing with you
As time will renew our stardust will too

As a transition piece I have chosen Vargo'd "The Moment", I'm counting on the visuals also 

Now 


One quarter of the bones in your body are in your feet. This is important because you're going to want to get up and dance. As I said, I'm not a One Direction fan. I am a Danny DeVito fan and once the music started I was drawn in. The video's concept (according to Hollywood Life) was the "brain child" of band member Harry Styles. It was directed by Benjamin and Gabe Turner. It is being promoted as One Direction's craziest video ever.The video is not without its dark side. Animal rights organizations (PETA for one) have asked the group to cut certain portions of the video. Spokesmen for One Direction assures everyone, no animal was harmed or mistreated during the production of "Steal My Girl". To be honest, the video was so enjoyable I didn't even notice.This is a real good video (from a non-Directioner).
I know you're going to enjoy One Direction "Steal My Girl"

Beyond Eternity to Like a Virgin 

For every heart there's a new world waiting 

Thank you for stopping by. Let's take a moment to open our eyes. 


Beyond Eternity (poem)


Meer time will perish long before
Ocean waves won’t kiss the shore
And clouds will all forget to sore
Yes all of this and so much more
-
When flowers will neglect their bloom
With their fragrance air won’t groom
And colors in their stillness loom
Yes all of this must first meet gloom
-
Sweet music will no longer play
Its meaning will just slip away
Dread silence will have more to say
Yes all of this will darken day
-
Warm summers cease to follow spring
Soft stars no longer wonder bring
And memories won’t mean a thing
Yes all of this and empty sting
-
But far beyond eternity
And all of this joins use to be
My heart will sing out Joyfully
How beautiful you are to me

Let's take one more step beyond with Enya's vision of  Karl Jenkins' "Adiemus" 

Are you ready for this 

When I heard of a real Catholic nun seriously singing Madonna's "Like a Virgin": I was dumb-struck. But not as much as when I heard, the Main Library at Indiana University used to sink over an inch every year because when it was built, engineers failed to take into account the weight of all the books that would occupy the building. 
I heard about Sister Cristina Scuccia an Italian Ursuline nun who won the 2014 season of The Voice of Italy over the news (without hearing or seeing her rendition). All I had was the picture of Madonna singing "Like a Virgin": As a result of Sister Cristina Scuccia's victory, she also won a  record deal with Universal. I purposely evade my review of her performance so you might have a similar awakening. I learned something about myself. Needless to say, Sister Cristina Scuccia's video has gone viral. (Why)
Catholic or not watch Sister Cristina Scuccia and welcome. "Like a Virgin"

Love - Lord of the Rings 

Love - Romantic verse and Spanish guitar 

Love - Traveling safely; then... 


The Verge (poem)


The stillness of the moonlight’s soothing trance
And in the distance flowed their special tune
Was there the lovers had their final dance
-
Who knew the depth of this couple’s romance
Each moment kissed with fantasies there strewn
The stillness of the moonlight’s soothing trance
-
In dreams of hearts their passion would enhance
When every breath was scent for souls attune
Was there the lovers had their final dance
-
Was in this verge an always touched a glance
And to this wonder all began to swoon
The stillness of the moonlight’s soothing trance
-
Through this confusion real was happenstance
And all gave way to shadows in typhoon
Was there the lovers had their final dance
-
So when forever’s lovers meet this chance
Upon the verge of midnight’s afternoon
The stillness of the moonlight’s soothing trance
Was there the lovers had their final dance

To go with this villanelle I've chosen to go with Armik "You Are My Love" 

Plus 

I don'know if other viral videos are on fire today, but I do know (now) Owls are the only birds who can see the color blue. 
I saw this video for Air New Zealand and fell in love with it. Air New Zealand has declared itself the official airline of Middle-earth. As such, it has gone all out to celebrate the third and final film in The Hobbit Trilogy. Air New Zealand is trying hard to make sure it’s customers watch the air safety video. Their earlier scantily clad swim suit model just wasn't making it. Air New Zealand is hoping turning to The Hobbit will be more successful in educating its customers on air safety. One thing is certain, Air New Zealand has a very successful viral video. Keep your eyes open for the added cameo appearances. 
Have fun watching "The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made #airnzhobbit"

Halloween is in the air 

Blame it on this Hot viral video 

But I really like candy (hint hint) 


Sarah’s Door (poem)

My son there are fields you may stray
With flowers to take hearts away
Where you can be happy all day
But listen to words I now say
Enjoy life mid kisses galore
But stay away from Sarah’s door
-
So into the world boy did go
And boy did the boy put on show
The flowers would wait in a row
In hopes to just bask in his glow
Truly this was what youth was for
Now who would dare a dream for more
-
The Joy of day ran into night
There never was a time so right
Another kiss lurked out of sight
An endless flow of sheer delight
Had sparked his mind to Sarah’s door
From somewhere he had heard before
-
He shared his longings with a friend
Who warned him of some evil end
It’s Sarah’s door let’s not pretend
Rich kisses here we must defend
Such crazy thoughts we must ignore
Abandon thoughts of Sarah’s door
-
But Sarah’s door entered boy’s dreams
From it imagination streams
What lies behind its golden seams
To push his passions to extremes
It calls him taunts him to explore
What madness waits at Sarah’s door
-
Now there’s still fields for hearts to play
Where flowers wait to kiss the day
And youthful airs are on display
Except for one who went astray
Now they don’t see him anymore
Since he had knocked on Sarah’s door

Here is Cafe Del Mar's rendition of Albinoni's Adagio in G Minor 

And here is the culprit 


But first you (don't) need to know "Samhainophobia" is the morbid fear of Halloween. 
Rob Cantor is a singer and songwriter from Detroit, Michigan. He currently resides in Los Angeles, California. You may (or may not) know him from the band Tilly Hall or his album "It's Not A Trampoline". Rob has a style all his own. His previous successes (in the millions) on YouTube speaks for of his talent and popularity. With “SHIA LABEOUF” Rob tells the true story of an actual cannibal. 
So here for your approval is Rob Cantor with "Shia LaBeouf" - bon appetit

Three step tanka into our thoughts 

Three step tanka into our reflection 

Three step tanka for a moment together 


Shadows Of A Memory (tanka)

There in the shadows
Of another memory
Voices were calling
From the way it use to be
Hoping that they’ll capture me


People After All (tanka)

People after all
In the forest of their birth
Shrouded from the sky
Which foretold of passing winds
Changing people one and all


Memories' Tears (tanka)

Sweet memories' tears
In the river of a life
The ebbs and the flows
Along the currents of time
Until they return at last 

An upbeat melody down a similar lane: Capital Cities "Safe And Sound" 

 And 

The Google glasses have been getting some negative news play lately. Let's leave all that for a moment. But first did you know; one in every 4 Americans has appeared on television at least once in their life. 
FKA twigs (Tahliah Debrett Barnett) is an English singer-songwriter, producer and dancer originally from Gloucestershire and currently based in London. "FKA" stands for "Formerly Known As".  She has created a concept film for Google Glass, working both as the performers and director. The film is set to a re-scored version of her songs 'Video Girl' and 'Glass & Patron'. The video is now going viral. 
To finish off this edition, enjoy "FKA twigs #throughglass"

Dealing with memories 

Not everyone has this visitor 

Let's freely explore "this visitor" in this edition 


Doesn’t Live Here Anymore (poem)

Didn’t I tell you to go
The person who you search for
Doesn’t live here anymore
-
Gone are his ways
Questions he’d raise
Magic display
His morning’s rays
End to dismays
Wonders ablaze
Nothing but praise
Gone are those days
Didn’t I tell you to go
-
The person who you search for
Doesn’t live here anymore
-
No more to believe
No fairytales weave
Which life would conceive
No tricks up some sleeve
For human reprieve
No note did he leave
No clues to retrieve
It’s hard to conceive
Didn’t I ask you to go
What you are searching for
-
Doesn’t live here anymore
-
Emptiness now fills his place
No more can his smile embrace
Without him must our future face
Memories now weave a trace
Essences in hearts now pace
In our soul it finds its space
In us he has found his grace
Now up to us a way replace
And so we ask you to go
For the one whom you search for
Doesn’t live here anymore

Here is one more viewpoint from the musical The Fantasticks song by Harry Belafonte "Try To Remember" 

And 

LeBron James has touched over 5 million hearts (so far) with this video and Horatio Nelson, one of England's most illustrious admirals was throughout his life, never able to find a cure for his sea-sickness.
For those who don't know, LeBron Raymone James is a professional basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers. James has won two NBA championships, four NBA Most Valuable Player Awards, two NBA Finals MVP Awards, two Olympic gold medals, an NBA scoring title, and the NBA Rookie of the Year Award. Off the court, James has accumulated considerable wealth and fame as a result of numerous endorsement deals. His public life has been the subject of much scrutiny and he has been ranked as one of America's most influential and popular athletes. In this viral video, by Beats by Dre, Cleveland welcomes James back after he left the Miami Heat. Along with the great music ("Take Me to Church" by Hozier) the video gives us meaningful flashes into James' past.
Enjoy, with millions of others, "Beats by Dre Presents: LeBron James in ‬RE-ESTABLISHED 2014 - Powerbeats2 Wireless‬‬‬"

Sometimes reality takes us  

And challenges how we view the world 

But for now let us get into a poem, some music, a useless fact and a viral video 
 

She Is There (poem)

In the streets she’s waiting
Waiting on some answer
Answer for some reason
Reason she is there
-
But all she sees is darkness
Darkness and surrender
Surrender to this evening
Evening of despair
-
Her sun awaits the morning
Morning filled with laughter
Laughter mixed with teardrops
Teardrops fill her prayer
-
For gentle mist now hides her
Her shadow midst the secret
Secret of a lady
Lady marred by care
-
And there he is her answer
Answer for this moment
Moment in an evening
Evening love affair
-
Somewhere a child is crying
Crying for its mother
Mother lost to hoping
Hoping child
Her precious child
The reason there is light at all
All this her prayers would spare

For you Lana Del Rey fans here's "Carmen" 

Those with squeamish stomachs are excused


At over 21,500,000 views and growing I would be doing a poor job not to show this prank video or if I didn't mention the name Wendy was made up for the book "Peter Pan." This video has been posted on Oct. 15th. Where it was brewing even the most popular viral video sites still don't know. Even YouTube missed this video's wild growth. It was made by Vitaly Zdorovetskiy (VitalyzdTV) and his team for Halloween. Because of its realistic violent nature it carries an age restriction. 
WARNING - This video is very violent, though no one is hurt.
For those of you still with us here's "Chainsaw Massacre Prank!"
