response:   All lose a loved one.. infinite are the variations of this deepest pain. Your poem is beautiful and piercing.   For some reason your poem reminds me of Yeats' A Deep Sworn Vow

mars and venus:   One of my favorite Wilde lines is his comment on foxhunting: 'the unspeakable in full pursuit of the inedible'   An astrologer once told a man he had had conflict in resolving the relationship of his mars to his venus... and he replied "I was a Victorian lady in my last life.. very happy.. it has taken me 30 years to be happy in a man's body.. but I have arrived'

we love the stars ever inside: we love the stars ever inside you  thanks for being here 'sleek as the yes in your lover's eyes'      'your unfinished self, now the shape of devotion, now the mirror of stars,'

Fruitarian: A wonderful post. Steve Jobs said he was a fruitarian when he named his company Apple.   I bow to the mysticism inside of you.   I consider any fruit or nut tree, berry bush, or food bearing vine which drops gifts into our lap without killing the plant to be fruitarian.   I am a vegan who is fruitarian perhaps 80% of the time.. This is an article I wrote about it https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2021/01/28/18839619.php

Thanks Saiom <3: I believe in reincarnation, Maya, Nirvana, Samsara, etc. Yes I am fondly familiar with the philosophies you mark. I tried to become a monk once when I was younger, 20.

saiom commented on: BETRAYED BY MUSES by georgeschaefer 1 hour 52 min ago
thought provoking:     many writers have different cures for writer's block ... some go to bed affirming they will dream an answer ... and they keep notebook and pen by the bed.. others pray   still others immerse themselves in the poetry of others and are inspired... imho God indwells you.. and it is inevitable that the connection to every muse will grow stronger

music memory:   lovely lovely   how music can strike the chords of memory as it gives us wings for distant places   sometimes the window is open before the door is?

response:   a wonderful autobiography...  several faiths teach reincarnation... ... mainly Eastern but in addition Christianity and Judaism have their mystical writings.. we are imho in a more conscious state until our rebirth process... those who after many lives have no more desire, ignorance or negative karma... are liberated from compulsory rebirth and merge in God     Your tiger in a cage metaphor is very powerful.. your language is beautiful

2 languages:   Your face is very spiritual. I am sorry I am ignorant of your language. It would be wonderful if someone who knew both yours and my language could post translations beneath your poems.

Reflective. Something in me: Reflective. Something in me moved reading this. I guess we've all been at this juncture at some point, and your description is brilliant, almost effortless. Good stuff.

true a lot of people are: true a lot of people are irresponsible but a lot of people also deal with a lot of unexpected tragedies and emergencies.  There are also a lot of people who are living paycheck to paycheck so one bad break can hurt them badly.  The Bible and the Koran and most religious books frown upon  usury.  It seems a lot of socieites and countries seem to turn their backs on the religions they allegedly follow.

Thanks Dalton: Glad it works so well for you. I changed the title to "Birders." I might change it again.
