In the absence of imagery
mere decoration and jewellery
the connection between love
and revolution is a simplicity
of passion
especially in that situation
where there is nothing left to lose,

  1. You say it better than Che… “At the risk of sounding ridiculous, let me say that the true revolutionary is guided by a great feeling of love.” Love this.

  2. And only when there is nothing left to lose we arrive at that primal empty fullness which can never be lost, dispassionately compassionate!

  3. good morning for a revolution and a beautiful poem

    sometimes jewellry is more than decoration eh?

  4. The only gem IS passion.

  5. I don’t think you can truly love unless you want revolution. at least the way things are now.

    How can you feel love and not FEEL the oppression?

  6. I read this earlier today and your words have been dancing in my head ever since… so I had to come back and read it again! Thanks for setting my mind a-spin…

  7. In a world of shiny, shyster soundbites (or should that be sound bytes?), passion *is* revolutionary.

    I so admire your way with words.

  8. passion and revolution – the twin engines of creation. rev the bejaysus out of em, i reckon.

    i enjoy the succinct quality here, paul.. am glad i stopped by.

  9. You are an optimist.

  10. i really like the succinct quality of this as well and i agree with crushedsghost comment. a revolution would be really good right about now.

  11. are you talking about the romance of fighting for freedom and whaz inside a person that counts possibly, maybe?? or what a person stands for?? ..cant help thinking ’bout that song… me n bobby megee… nothing left to lose..
