Day 114 – Cityscape

I got up this morning to take some pictures for another photojournalism assignment in the city. I was attempting to show the city at its calm morning state but even at 6.30 am it was fairly busy in Sydney! If I had got up any earlier it would’ve been too dark so I can’t win really! In the end I got a few shots and decided to post this one as it has a very ‘Batman/Gotham City’ feel to it. It was near Town Hall and that area in general could well be the Gotham City precinct of Sydney. It has a haunting quality to it.

Another thing with a haunting quality is this poem I read in this book I got from the library. The book is one where actors and directors present the poetry that inspires them. The poem below was selected by actress Swoosie Kurtz.

from A Norman Crucifix of 1632 – Charles Causley

I am the great sun, but you do not see me,
I am your husband, but you turn away,
I am the captive, but you do not free me,
I am the captain you will not obey.

I am the truth, but you will not believe me,
I am the city where you will not stay,
I am your wife, your child, but you will leave me,
I am that God to whom you will not pray.

I am your counsel, but you do not hear me,
I am the lover whom you will betray,
I am the victor, but you do not cheer me,
I am the holy dove whom you will slay.

I am your life, but if you will not name me,
Seal up your soul with tears, and never blame me
