Stand in the place where you live
Now face North
Think about direction
Wonder why you haven't before
Now stand in the place where you work
Now face West
Think about the place where you live
Wonder why you haven't before

If you are confused, check with the sun
Carry a compass to help you along
Your feet are going to be on the ground
Your head is there to move you around, so


Your feet are going to be on the ground
Your head is there to move you around
If wishes were trees, the trees would be falling
Listen to reason
Season is calling

I'm Georgie and this is my contribution to the Poetree Free Association week:

This image, from the final scene of Antoine de Saint-Exupery's The Little Prince can certainly stand alone, but is often accompanied by text, which I have included--in French and English because I think they are equally beautiful.

Le Petit Prince
"Quand tu regarderas le ciel, la nuit, puisque j’habiterai dans l’une d’elles, puisque je rirai dans l’une d’elles, alors ce sera pour toi comme si riaient toutes les étoiles. Tu auras, toi, des étoiles qui savent rire ! Et il rit encore."

["In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars will be laughing when you look at the sky at night..You, only you, will have stars that can laugh!"]
~Antoine de St. Exupery Le Petit Prince

Happy Associating!

My first attempt at yeast-rising bread came out quite well. Photo is from September of this year. What poems might this bring to mind? Go forth and free associate in the comments!

From [personal profile] meeks' story sketch project comes this illustration for Mother-Tongue:

What poem or poem(s) does this bring to mind? And what further images, songs, or poems do those poems bring to mind?

I chose a snippet from one of my favorite songs, Roll Away Your Stone by Mumford and Sons.

It seems that all my bridges have been burned
But you say, "That's exactly how this grace thing works"
It's not the long walk home that will change this heart
But the welcome I receive with every start

Full lyrics here.
Listen to the song here.

Given how busy everyone seems to be right now, our theme for this upcoming week will not focus exclusively on a poetry audio recording fest like I initially suggested. Instead we'll have a free association game week. What does that entail? For each day someone different will post a poem, a sentence fragment/prompt, an image, or a song link. Your task will be to do at least one of the following at least once each day: a.) respond to the post or a comment with a poem that the post or comment reminds you of; b.) do an audio recording of a poem in the post or comment threads and link to it in your reply (SoundCloud is your friend for uploading); or c.) respond to one of the poems in the comment threads with a song link or a small image (with link to source) that it reminds you of.

For the purposes of this week alone, while alternatively published, non-published, or public domain poetry is preferred (yours or others'), contemporary traditionally published poetry is also fair game.

Please comment to this post to claim a day; days will be assigned on a first come, first served basis, and I'll fill in for any that are unclaimed.
