dive for dreams or a slogan may topple you (trees are their roots and wind is wind) trust your heart if the seas catch fire (and live by love though the stars walk backward) honour the past but welcome the future (and dance your death away at the wedding) never mind a world with its villains or heroes (for good likes girls and tomorrow and the earth) in spite of everything which breathes and moves, since Doom (with white longest hands neating each crease) will smooth entirely our minds -before leaving my room i turn, and (stooping through the morning) kiss this pillow, dear where our heads lived and were. silently if, out of not knowable silently if, out of not knowable night's utmost nothing,wanders a little guess (only which is this world)more my life does not leap than with the mystery your smile sings or if (spiraling as luminous they climb oblivion)voices who are dreams, less into heaven certainly earth swims than each my deeper death becomes your kiss losing through you what seemed myself,i find selves unimaginably mine;beyond sorrow's own joys and hoping's very fears yours is the light by which my spirit's born: yours is the darkness of my soul's return -you are my sun,my moon,and all my stars
- ee cummings
Yes I was watching Charlie St. Cloud this weekend when I heard Zac Efron quote ee cummings (who is undoubtedly my favorite poet of all time). His style and voice are so unique and in every one of his poems I find something to connect to. I was planning on making a "10 things" list of top poems sometime, but realized most of it would consist of ee cummings. At first I didn't think I had heard dive for dreams, but as I was reading through the poem the words became oddly familiar (so I think I have but it must have been awhile ago).
I was a little skeptical about the quality of this movie at first, but it was surprisingly good. Zac Efron's acting wasn't bad and it made me want to go sailing.
