Vancouver Retreat February 28, 2015

A cold bright winterspring day found all five Gestarries gathered in matrixial co-poiesis.

A spontaneous writing and reading co-emerged from Ingred's facilitation of breath to movement to writing. The recorded cut-up reading of our individual writing is braided with soundings done on the day of our retreating together. Below is a 10 minute arrangement edited by Barbara and Ingrid.

Medwyn's writing

wild love regained

to feel the love in you
turn wild
being love and wild
bringing wild love
into catching
space in being
dreams drifting away
glances glimpsed and lost
vivid scenes fading
washing into mists
water flow
river rushing currents
to the sea
voices and faces
conjure past dreams
into present dreaming
what is there
to dream about
landscapes of the mind
turning changing
approaching and receding
dare I reach out
to grasp the image
lost in time's folding tapestry
of form and changing line
ever lost in endless webs
ever found again in stillness
in my dreaming
a longing
forgotten
in my awakening
a remembering
regained

wild love regained

regained
a remembering
in my awakening
forgotten
a longing
in my dreaming
ever found again in stillness
ever lost in endless webs
of form and changing line
lost in time's folding tapestry
to grasp the image
dare I reach out
approaching and receding
turning changing
landscapes of the mind
to dream about
what is there
into present dreaming
conjure past dreams
voices and faces
to the sea
river rushing currents
water flow
washing into mists
vivid scenes fading
glances glimpsed and lost
dreams drifting away
space in being
into catching
bringing wild love
being love and wild
turn wild
to feel the love in you

 ingred's writing

till we take hold


dig deeper hands of mine

fingers draw web between time

we're wild in sheer living slide

down sides of veined and wrinkled excavations

earth cut like cake

aeons go by

sliced and sluiced till we take hold

 

dig deeper hands of mine

through lime and slate

granite and basalt

where flesh's atrium of dancing fibres

mimics night's vaulting stars—

suspended we are 

in and out of our depth

suspended timeless  

our wilder-ness 

 

Barbara's Writing


Digging deep into the earth
digging deep into
into being into
mind fall    wind fall    wind falling
all around stroking all parts
of the whole
so touched
touching touching
touched by the wind    wild
in its freedom
free of all constraints it bends
at will/less/ness
necessary striving into space
that is it
all of it at once
no hesitating
just in-sweep of air and
up-sweep of all that meets it
meeting the wind is
delving delving deeply
digging into all that is
all that is and all that will be
inside out
