SOUL CARES
















PROSERPINA AND THE POMEGRANATE



Proserpere Proserpina
thy stage & thy cup, drink
a drink
from thy grain
is everlasting
a crescendo
khora en Koré

PSYCHE'S TROPE

 Going Between Quiddler And Hide

Henry Moore, 1945
"People Looking At A Tied-up Object"





















[excerpt]

...I have gratitude for Psyche’s veil. It is the way “Nature loves to hide.”


 "Phusis kruptesthai philei."  ~ Heraclitus


And there you catch it. The image, the veil, is the image itself as veil, as the covering that hides and that is itself this hide. The unknown object of dreams is an image of psyche-making.

In the myth, the gods give humanity to man this way. In form, feminine. But in material, immaterial, veil-like. Her name is Pandora, which means all-gift. Her psyche-making is this. She is a personfied notion for "image of psyche" which we inherit in its entirety without knowing what "it" "is".

In gumption oddly throbbing

activates my heart
so makeshift and apart

journeys here in art



drowning so

in French Château
