Attitude

written by: Karima Hoisan

 

Dark days, sad days
Chopin on a piano playing;
grey skies, about to rain
feels like night at 10 am.
A droplet hits the window pane.
How depressing!
Don’t turn on the little table light,
the bedside lamps…
Now this room’s a Scottish castle
bleak and damp; a dungeon door has closed,
a burst of light then thunder rumbles…
Inside you’re desolate, trapped and cold.

Dark days, cozy days
Chopin on a piano, playing,
grey skies, about to rain
feels like night at 10 am.
A droplet hits the window pane.
How perfect!
Turn on the little table light,
the bedside lamps…
Now this room’s a Scottish castle
with Rembrandt glow, spiced tea and pie
a burst of light then thunder rumbles
Inside, you’re safe and snug and dry.

Attitude.

I live in Costa Rica and write poetry in both English and Spanish. I perform live poetry readings in the 3D virtual platform of Second Life, as my avatar utilizing voice with selected music, some, my own original compositions, and images I display of photographs and artworks to accompany each poem. Many of my poems have been made into machinimas (live-capture videos) through the continuing creative partnership with Natascha Randt (filmmaker). Randt & Hoisan Productions have made 28 videos together; all can be found under the category “Machinima” in my blog. I find every day in this virtual world an inspiration and I am active on my blog, "Digital Rabbit Hole." I am both published in Second Life as well as in my Real Life, in an anthology titled, "The Baker's Dozen, The Cole Foundation Collection Vol lll."
