Excerpts from “True Love” by Robert Penn Warren

In silence the heart raves. It utters words
Meaningless, that never had
A meaning. I was ten, skinny, red-headed,

Freckled. In a big black Buick,
Driven by a big grown boy, with a necktie, she sat
In front of the drugstore, sipping something

Through a straw. There is nothing like
Beauty. It stops your heart. It
Thickens your blood. It stops your breath…

Excerpts from “Song” by Allen Ginsberg

The weight of the world
is love.
Under the burden
of solitude,
under the burden
of dissatisfaction

the weight,
the weight we carry
is love.

Who can deny?
In dreams
it touches
the body,
in thought
constructs
a miracle,
in imagination
anguishes
till born
in human–
looks out of the heart
burning with purity–
for the burden of life
is love,

“Wandering through a dream trying to grasp each moment as it quickly slips through your fingers. Playing memories in your head over and over again hoping to relive that salty sea air grazing your cheek. Hearing the sound of the crashing waves singing like a church choir. All to get lost in memory like a fleeting dream.”

Tempus Fugit 2 Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film Directed by Nicholas Roemmelt in 2016.JPG

TEMPUS FUGIT 2 , the sequel of my first time-lapse movie „Tempus Fugit“, took me three years to shoot. I was visiting a lot of popular and well known places around the world but quite remote and deserted spots, too, in the last three years. Sometimes I had to hike for hours with heavy equipment to come to the spots. You will find locations in Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and USA (California, Utah, Washington, Oregon).

Valhalla Cinematic Poem Short Film In Oregon Directed by John Waller and Ben Canales in 2016.JPG

Produced in Collaboration With: Oregon Field Guide Valhalla Documentary

“Valhalla”

Your persistent journey
has revealed my hidden gate.
Each step burns a deeper path
into this warrior’s heaven.

Reckless footprints
of your searching
Find no welcome here
Bear witness to this place
untrammeled by your visit.

In these cathedral gardens,
the chaos of rock and water,
the tenacity of life,
the wisdom of time,
sit around the warrior’s table.

But you arrive without invitation;
The illusion of a pioneer,
stalwart, on your hero’s journey.
This caravan of pride and ego,
Find no celebration here.

Here is where your proud waves halt.
Have you journeyed to the springs of the mountain?
Have you walked the corridors of Time?
Tell me, if you know all this.

With wisdom, place your next step
Do these sacred halls stand
for you to fill and subdue?

Pass through these gates of truth
and walk with the courage to accept
the death of your beliefs.

Requiem Of Ice Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film In Oregon Directed By John Waller And Ben Canales (2014)

Since October, 2013, John Waller and Ben Canales of Uncage the Soul Productions have made five trips to the Sandy Glacier Caves on Mt Hood, the largest glacier cave system in the lower 48 states, documenting the extraordinary deterioration and collapse of these stunningly beautiful caves. The resulting short film takes the viewer on a visual odyssey of the cave system, showing the massive scale, as well as the intimate details. Waller and Canales scripted an artistic narrative interpretation of the final thoughts of the glacier cave to accompany the time-lapse, high speed, and aerial footage that was produced.

[Requiem of Ice]

For ages this sentinel mountain has shadowed me.
Together, we have shaped the land to our design.

I speak the language of water and air
My breath twists and curls across the mountain summit.
I dream into ponds of fog
that splash and flow across the hillsides.
I flush with color at the promise of a new day.
But I feel the fragile balance shifting…

The whispering trickle of summer teardrops
becomes a roar of my departing spirit.
Water drips and seeps into open veins
through scalloped tunnels of time.
I am tortured with roots to a mountain that can no longer sustain me.
I feel weak.

I look inward.
The artists of wind, water and light
each carve in me their signature.
My thirst is not for lack of water,
And winter’s crystals left at my feet are not enough
I retreat deeper into the shadow of the mountain
What will become of me?

I look skyward.
The sun arcs across a blue expanse
and peers into me from the edge of earth
I am illuminated from within by an extraordinary light.
I have no shelter from its relentless heat
It is the light that accents my beauty.
It is the light that will consume me.

I welcome the cold blanket of darkness.
The canvas of stars cools my scalded facade.
Through ceiling eyes I converse with the sweeping heavens.
But the night has begun to flicker with a new yellow flame,
Cold nights now warm and the voice of stars fade.
I feel alone.
What will become of me?

My strength ebbs as the fragile gift of life departs.
With cautious welcome,
I invite the intrepid seeker to share my story.
I remind you of the raw code of Nature.
Despite my open door, I cannot promise your safety
Leave no words unsaid about the elation of a life well lived.
Take with you the memory of our visit
and smile when you think of me.
