A long time coming

She is a warrior with words and a voyeur with images. Her works vibrate and emote what lies beneath the surface. She is BlueEpocha. A poet and photographer that hails from the Canadian country. BlueEpocha has two blogs, Anamnesis Vista hosts her photographic images including three official photoshoots and one prize winning picture. On the other hand, Vase of a Phase, showcases her poetic talent. There are thousands of folks that walk this earth and yet only a fraction of them will grace us with the essence of their soul. BlueEpocha captures two different worlds and merges them succinctly to form her world. A world that invites you the reader to connect through your internal dialogue. What you see and what you read in her blogs transcedes & brings forth the dialogue we hold within ourselves and with it, we (the reader) comes to a realization that there is a string of thought, of conscious, of being that runs through and between our worlds. She is an inspiration and in light of that, comes a dedication from the works of a Noble Prize poet.



But I forgot that your hands fed the roots,
watering the tangled roses,
till your fingertips bloomed
full, in a natural peace.

Like pets, your hoe and your sprinkling can
follow you around, biting and licking the earth.
That work is how you let this richness loose,
the carnations fiery freshness.

I wish the love and dignity of bees for your hands,
mixing and spreading their transparent brood
in the earth: they cultivate even my heart,

so that I am like scorched rock
that suddenly sings when you are near, because it drinks
the water you carry from the forest, in your voice

By Pablo Neruda.

Take light not what I said, for I do not think I did her justice. Seeing is believing and therefore take this opportunity to familiarize yourself with her works.

^ Filsan, can you change your template? Your text is black and your background is dark grey and you could hardly read it.

:) Just a little suggestion. I couldn't comment on your blog.

Filsan said...

anonymous person i have no idea what to say. it must've been ur computer b/c the text on my template was white - not black...

but i changed the template anyway =) it was way overdue!

md said...

just out of interest how do you know whose somali and whose not?
could you please put on 'spongesandspoons.blogspot.com as she is clearly somali.....

SleepDepraved said...

Hey MD I went to her blog and I saw a pic that was white. No offence to her but is the pic she put up not hers and is she somali. Her tale narrates one of being a revert. Please clarify, as for now it looks like she is linked. As we grow we would love to include other networks but for now the blogs houses people from somali or origins of somali. Thanks luv.
