As the Diamond Sky,
To Ask Why.
As the Whispering Mist,
As the Fluttering Leaves,
As Love Grieves.

Ruse of Captive Games, Unspoken,
Hindering Ever the chance of Fate,
Whisper Hope, what once was Broken,
Of Ethereal Magic, Sweetly Incarnate.
Summer Night of Trilling Song,
Worship Singing in Ancient Rhyme,
Transforming Quietly where I Belong
Into Purest Passion, Beguilingly Sublime.
………..End part two

Harbinger of Light and Life,
Messenger of Portents, Passing,
Cutting through Obscure Blackness,
Finding Imagination Gasping,
Bringer of Immortal Doom,
Herald of Spectacular Show,
Dichotomic as Snow and Stone,
Envoy of Glittering Glow,
Shaping Fate with Your Outstretched Hand,
Guiding us to Blind Destiny,
Falter not when Gazes Follow,
O Beacon of Time’s Mortality.

You Step into my Silence, Glistening;
Your Smile All My Eyes can See,
Faith Breaks from Clouds like Colour, Misting
Echoes of Love from Eternity.
Where Hope Gleams in Unabashed State,
Unfettered and Unhinged Be,
Tossing Intemperance to the Winds of Fate,
While Hushed and Fragile this Heart shall Beat.
Clouds May Shower Gloomy Shade,
And Barren ‘Scapes Around me Lie,
Yet When You Smile, All Shadows Fade;
When You Laugh, Desolation Sighs!
Here, then, in Silence Live I, Waiting
For Your Smile, Despair Translating.

Spark the Heart that Fuels This Fire
Raging, Passionate, Consuming Desire!
Ignite the Soul that Mutely Waits,
Surrounding, Engulfing, Prevailing Fate!
Warm the Hands that Long to Touch,
Trembling, Yearning, Longing for Much!
Beautiful Original Artwork by: Henry Asencio
Passion moving with Elegant Grace,
Desire and Mystery upon Your Face,
Sending me to the Most Blissful state,
Into Your Hands I place my Fate.
Words with such Sweet Breath Composed,
This Euphoria Burning, Ever grows,
While Midnight and Sweet Shadows Play,
And the Candles, with Us, Together Sway.

Rosencrantz (Gary Oldman): Whatever became of the moment when one first knew about death? There must have been one. A moment. In childhood. When it first occurred to you that you don’t go on forever. Must have been shattering. Stamped into one’s memory. And yet, I can’t remember it. It never occurred to me at all. We must be born with an intuition of mortality. Before we know the word for it. Before we know that there are words. Out we come, bloodied and squawling, with the knowledge that for all the points of the compass, there’s only one direction. And time is its only measure.
For those of you who have not had the pleasure of watching the movie Rozencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead (or the play for that matter) I highly recommend it. This amazing, humorous and often profound movie is from 1990 and stars Gary Oldman, Richard Dreyfuss and Tim Roth. (All exceedingly talented actors, in my book)(nvolume) It follows the lives of two minor characters from the play Hamlet. (you guessed it, although, let’s face it, I haven’t even mentioned Shakespeare or Hamlet in quite a while, so I’m more than overdue) (and you’ve been exceptionally fortunate!)
In the movie, the play (Hamlet) is taking place around these characters, and as you watch and they stumble about trying to find their way (and you along with them, oftentimes) these two unremarkable fellows encounter and grapple with such enigmatic and philosophical themes as Life, Death, Physics, Fate and simply trying to remember their own names. (Since Hamlet wrote them as so inconsequential that none of the characters in the play, including Hamlet, could remember their names)
As the passage above illustrates, amidst the horrendously poor Shakespearian acting (which is just another ploy of the brilliant writer of this play turned movie, Tom Stoppard) and the antics of these two far from infallible blokes, there is a generous sprinkling of irreverence, thought-provoking cinematography, and insightful soliloquies that often make you want to press pause and spend a moment (or seven) considering.
And for those of you who are Who’s Line is it Anyway, fans there is also the original Questions Game which is actually played out on a tennis court. (Here’s a snippet just to entice you)
Rosencrantz: Do you want to play questions?
Guildenstern (Tim Roth) : How do you play that?
Rosencrantz: You have to ask a question.
Guildenstern: Statement. One – Love.
Rosencrantz: I haven’t started yet.
Guildenstern: Statement. Two – Love.
Rosencrantz: Are you counting that?
Rosencrantz: Are you counting that?
Guildenstern: Foul. No repetition. Three – Love and game.
Rosencrantz: I’m not going to play if you’re going to be like that.
The movie is overflowing with Laurel and Hardy-esque wit and absurdity, as well, that will leave a smile on your face long after you’ve stopped laughing, shaking your head, and/or finished watching. It’s a face-paced, in- your- face, make- you- turn- your- head- to- the- side- questioningly- and- wonder- what- exactly- is- going- on, astonishing mingling of words that is one of my favourite movies, ever. One of those I can watch over and over, again and again and never grow tired of (there I go ending with a preposition again…sorry!)…of which I never grow tired. (better!)
Actor (Richard Dreyfuss): Audiences know what they expect and that is all they are prepared to believe in.

Plighted before the worlds began,
Before I became Woman,
Before You became Man.
Sharing One Breath, Accord Incarnate;
Our Inseparable Fate.
Created as One, by birth Divided,
Always Seeking the Other,
Our Destiny Guided.
Living without You, OH Loneliest state;
Our Unalterable Fate.
Changeless as the Eternal Sea
I, Longing for You;
You, Longing for me.
Wordless Perfection, Sweetest Soul Mate,
Each breath bringing Closer
Our Inexorable Fate.

Though Shatters of Silence resound
with the Clangor of tympanic Resonance;
My Thoughts are fixed, Entranced upon You
through the Melancholy Dissonance.
Happenstance stands on the Precipice,
Waiting on Decision’s final Charade,
But Plans well laid, Unfaltering Tempt
And I Follow through the Dizzying Parade.
