You’ve Come Down by Jennifer Hogenson

Feeling strange then scared
What’s happening
Colors flashing shapes floating
Hearing and seeing things that aren’t there
Smiling and laughing at nothing forever
Your reflection dismantled and thoughts are scrambled
Seeing through kaleidoscopes and hearing through microphones
Feeling without touch
Carefree ecstatic orgasmic
Climbing to the top
Reaching the peak
Standing above the clouds at peace
The moment fades
Pitch black are the colors
Dead silence are the sounds
Falling replaces the firm ground
You’ve come down

This has me in tears  🙁

I don’t want to depress you lovely people.  But I thought it really should be shared:

Real-life Grave of the Fireflies

Real-life Grave of the Fireflies: (Photo) Stoic Japanese orphan, standing at attention having brought his dead younger brother to a cremation pyre, Nagasaki, by Joe O’Donnell 1945

This photograph was taken by an American photojournalist, Joe O’Donnell, in Nagasaki in 1945.

He recently spoke to a Japanese interviewer about this picture:

“I saw a boy about ten years old walking by. He was carrying a baby on his back. In those days in Japan, we often saw children playing with their little brothers or sisters on their backs, but this boy was clearly different. I could see that he had come to this place for a serious reason. He was wearing no shoes. His face was hard. The little head was tipped back as if the baby were fast asleep.

“The boy stood there for five or ten minutes. The men in white masks walked over to him and quietly began to take off the rope that was holding the baby. That is when I saw that the baby was already dead. The men held the body by the hands and feet and placed it on the fire.

“The boy stood there straight without moving, watching the flames. He was biting his lower lip so hard that it shone with blood. The flame burned low like the sun going down. The boy turned around and walked silently away.”

Love You in Silence by Honey Cai

You came into my life
Quietly, simply, tenderly…
The world stood still
I could not say a word
Nor a single gestured showed.

The feeling kept in my heart
So I’ve loved you in silence
Worshiped you from a distance
And dreampt of you so often.

I want to say I Love You,
But I’m afraid…
Afraid that you’ll just take it for granted.
In silence then, I’ll just love you.
In silence I’ll find…
The fulfillment of my dreams.

Hidden Love by Heather

Author: Heather

Passion burning deep in my heart
Wishing that we were never apart
Coming together hand in hand
Melted and pressed as grains of sand
Shaping a most beautiful pane of glass
Etchings abound and trimmed with brass
A beautiful display wanting all to see
Remains hidden and sheltered only for me

Fly and ride sister trip

Fly and ride sister trip,
Surf on the crest of the wave wall
Shoot down a hundred thousand miles an hour glide
Moan through the disembodied mourning of self-expression
Burst open: a morning-gold explosion of multi-colored sparks
Rays prismatic
Chromatic swoop of wings
Slow to a grind
Halt and pant on the floor.
Sweat dripping to your feet spin-
Swoon into the dharma blues again.

The Poetry of Reality – Symphony of Science

The Poetry of Reality – Symphony of Science


The Poetry of Reality is the fifth installment in the Symphony of Science music video series. It features 12 scientists and science enthusiasts, including Michael Shermer, Jacob Bronowski, Carl Sagan, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Richard Dawkins, Jill Tarter, Lawrence Krauss, Richard Feynman, Brian Greene, Stephen Hawking, Carolyn Porco, and PZ Myers, promoting science through words of wisdom.

Special thanks are due to The Sagan Appreciation Society:

and Connie Barlow:

for their huge help in finding source materials. Check out their Youtube pages! Thanks also to all of you who suggested footage that I have not mentioned, I really appreciate it.

Check out for more science music videos!

Now available in HD for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!



[Michael Shermer]
Science is the best tool ever devised
For understanding how the world works

[Jacob Bronowski]
Science is a very human form of knowledge
We are always at the brink of the known

[Carl Sagan]
Science is a collaborative enterprise
Spanning the generations
We remember those who prepared the way
Seeing for them also

[Neil deGrasse Tyson]
If you’re scientifically literate,
The world looks very different to you
And that understanding empowers you

[Richard Dawkins]
There’s real poetry in the real world
Science is the poetry of reality

We can do science
And with it, we can improve our lives

[Jill Tarter]
The story of humans is the story of ideas
That shine light into dark corners

[Lawrence Krauss]
Scientists love mysteries
They love not knowing

[Richard Feynman]
I don’t feel frightened by not knowing things
I think it’s much more interesting

[Brian Greene]
There’s a larger universal reality
of which we are all a part

[Stephen Hawking]
The further we probe into the universe
The more remarkable are the discoveries we make

[Carolyn Porco]
The quest for the truth, in and of itself,
Is a story that’s filled with insights


From our lonely point in the cosmos
We have through the power of thought
Been able to peer back to a brief moment
After the beginning of the universe

[PZ Myers]
I think that science changes the way your mind works
To think a little more deeply about things

Science replaces private prejudice
With publicly verifiable evidence

into the Void, to
realms of pure Perception
with no definable dimension,
no Limitations, and
where Boundaries are but the conception of Fears

herein and after there are no Lies,
no Truth,
no Laws and No,
what exists within, IS

mere Speculation,
where immersion and Experience
is Transient but,
for Intuition and Memory

where Content may
briefly exist, while
residing in Rainbows’ magic end,
in minds available Eye
Enduring only through acceptance,
ones wall of perception.

yet non-existent within, the
from whence it came
where it will always
Never Be


Heart To Heart by Lilaneyah

Heart To Heart

Author: Lilaneyah

Sometimes in this lifetime,
we meet a special soul,
who fills our very essence,
to almost overflow,
we drink the cup of friendship,
it tastes like ruby wine,
and you know within your heart,
this meeting was Divine.

This soul that lives within your heart,
no distance can prevail,
an inner spark, within the heart,
becomes a Holy Grail,
the starting of a journey,
in which you both shall be,
a reflection of each other,
for all eternity.
