“Sometimes I think of the world as a group of people. Everyone
without exception is performing the same show.”

around-a-vision-cinematic-poem-short-film-trailer-directed-by-riccardo-chemello-2017

“The aim of Around a Vision is to observe places, people,
stories that question our certainties. We want to tell the
journey of five athletes that look for a different, holy,
almost primitive vision in the Asiatic land. Together with
their sporting, distorted vision of the city that is for
them a real playground they ll be able to reach their purpose.
Brace yourself, you re about to see Italy, India and Myanmar
lived between experiences at the limit of humanity, mystical
acquaintances and athletic evolutions.”

The ocean confronts the mountains,
Folding walls at his feet
And the blackened sand.
We are more than a madman
If one faced the abyss,
And more than a king
If one tames his nightmares.

Street Sweeper Cinematic Poem Short Film in Barcelona Spain Directed by Rupert Walker

“Street Sweeper” (from “The Three Dimensions of a Complete Life”)

by Martin Luther King Jr.

“What I’m saying to you this morning, my friends, even if it falls your lot to be a street sweeper, go on out and sweep streets like Michelangelo painted pictures; sweep streets like Handel and Beethoven composed music; sweep streets like Shakespeare wrote poetry; (Go ahead) sweep streets so well that all the host of heaven and earth will have to pause and say, “Here lived a great street sweeper who swept his job well.”

If you can’t be a pine on the top of a hill

Be a scrub in the valley—but be

The best little scrub on the side of the hill,

Be a bush if you can’t be a tree.

If you can’t be a highway just be a trail

If you can’t be the sun be a star;

It isn’t by size that you win or fail—

Be the best of whatever you are.

And when you do this, when you do this, you’ve mastered the length of life.”

“Edges of Sanity” by Dan Crockett

“It’s been said

On far shores, weary mariners hear voices

Songs so beautiful they cast a spell

There is no choice but to hear.

They claim these whispers hold a message

Each ear hears different music

But the same call hunts the senses:

Without risk, there is no beauty

Without chance, no adventure

Through suffering, wealth without limit

So we scheme and plan

And tell nobody of our dreams

Shuffle cards, chance vague variables

And tread endless road miles until

Close against cold ground we toss and turn

And summon black water

                 *     *     *

For I am of the waiting deep

The great denier, the poised fist

Stalker of pitch oceans

Whose fingers twist about your throat…

I swallowed the sad pilgrims

Who fell to flat reef, their vessels sunk

Into water bitter as winter night

Beyond the edges of sanity

I am the waiting teeth of the rocks below

The grinning maw in the clouds

Bearer of the hourglass – killer of the short dim day

Who beckons you to dare

*     *     *

The north song does not stop

Power in that promise

Goes beyond common meanings

You have walked in footsteps new

What was before will never be again

But memories of lined faces

And in the glowing after

Breaking bread the sweetest knot

All weight shed – light extraordinary

Until my whisper comes again…

And the future begs your listening

The future begs your listening”

Poem by:  Graeme Stewart

A Norseman Poem Cinematic Poem Short Film On Norway’s Xtreme Triathlon Directed By Robby MacBeath 2015

“Norseman”

You ask me why I do the Norseman Tri?
For a wan’a be tough guy, it’s god dam must try,
As if the journey through life was not enough strife,
At some points I’ve felt lucky just not to get knifed.

From Airdrie to Eidfjord is a long way to walk,
But I was never one to follow the flock,
I rose to my potential the growth was exponential,
But now’s become essential to prove my TRI credentials.

In to the water and no there’s chance of a re-board,
The time has come to man up and become lord of this Fjord,
Swimming with my Norsemen it fills me with majesty,
But getting there first is the only winning strategy.

Then it’s time to hammer to the Hadanger,
You gotta push hard and need strong mental armour,
Climbing up Imingfjell, it feels like I’m in hell,
Don’t dwell, have a gel, I’ll get through this bad spell.

Then at last the final mile is in sight,
Oh shit, wait a minute, that mile is in height!
But there’s no stoppin’ on Gaustatoppin
And I’ll get to the top without my legs poppin’.

Then when alls said and done, it was quite an achievement,
Although at some points I thought it’d end in bereavement,
But with my Norseman companions, it came in my stride,
And now I’ll go home and wear my Black T-shirt with pride.
