Rooney Mara:
"Ghost Story"

Your Best
Ganbatte ne

Higher powers are competing for control.
They rig each poll to tax the whole.

It feels right to appeal to the highest power.
The flower for the hour looks above the tower.

This invokes transcendent self.
The twelfth elf stands on the shelf.

Transcendence can detach from the will to work.
Ego can't shirk the will to exact an act or the clerk will irk the kirk.
Perspective on perception works an immediate bent
to accomplish what is necessary in the present
or the descent of dissent will be lent to ill intent.

The sense of imminent presence
provides comfort with confidence.

Presence, intelligence and creativity
are enhanced with faith in ingenuity
to avoid superfluity.

You have heard my plea.
You have searched me.

You know when I sit or stand.
I don't let things get out of hand.

You discerned my thought.
I have not been taught to damage the tot.

You observe my work and rest.
I do my best to bless the blessed.

You are acquainted with my ways.
I raise praise to avoid the dazed haze of brazen plays.

There was not a word on my lips as a token
that you did not know before it was spoken.
That which was spoken as a token of the unbroken.

Your presence guides me to the future
to avoid the shot from the shooter 
to block the boot from the booter
or to lock the lock against the looter.
This is the rule of protection from the ruler.

Your  reach is felt into the past.
I was urged to learn from what crashed,
smashed, trashed or was slashed.

This is the craft from the ark of aft.

Your transcendence is heaven sent.
It lies beyond the wonderment
of the thunderous.

It is so high that I feel overwhelmed.
That which was overwhelmed is compelled 
to excel.

Can I escape Spirit?
The farthest reach doesn't steer a bit, 
but the will to reach is always near it.

Can I run from presence?
It is the essence of the present.

If I climb to heaven, you are there.
This leaven shows you care.

If I make my bed a grave, you are there also.
No sallow hollow follows the bravo of Apollo.

If I were to take a flight
in the morning light
and stop
the pop
at the farthest reaches of the sea
even there, the essence of your presence will be with me.

Your security will hold me fast.
Your courage will make me last.

If I say, "The darkness will cover me."
I will not be seen by those not near enough to see.

The light around me will turn to night.
I will be kept out of sight.

The darkness is not dark to you.
The queue is not too new to be true.

The night is as bright as day.
Even the fray has something to say.

Darkness and light are both alike in a way.
The fringe of the fray shows the rate of decay.

Search me.
I am free.

Know my heart.
It provides a recurring start.

Settle my restless thoughts.
I only need that which keeps my mind taut.

Look for wrong.
It won't stay long.

Lead me in the way that is true.
It will keep me from feeling blue.

While neither slave nor serf is free,
it is right to serve to earn a fee. 

Psalm 139

To the leader. Of David. A Psalm.

1 O Lord, you have searched me and known me.
2 You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
   you discern my thoughts from far away.
3 You search out my path and my lying down,
   and are acquainted with all my ways.
4 Even before a word is on my tongue,
   O Lord, you know it completely.
5 You hem me in, behind and before,
   and lay your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
   it is so high that I cannot attain it.
7 Where can I go from your spirit?
   Or where can I flee from your presence?
8 If I ascend to heaven, you are there;
   if I make my bed in Sheol, you are there.
9 If I take the wings of the morning
   and settle at the farthest limits of the sea,
10 even there your hand shall lead me,
   and your right hand shall hold me fast.
11 If I say, ‘Surely the darkness shall cover me,
   and the light around me become night’,
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart;
   test me and know my thoughts.
24 See if there is any wicked* way in me,
   and lead me in the way everlasting.

Lea Seydoux:
"It's Only the End of the World"


Shifuku o tanoshimu

ps 65

This temple was not made with human hands.
It was not built on stone. It was closer to sand
but it is on land.

Build a promise like you build a house.
Don't forget your beginning sprouts
with the tests you tout.

Prayer is answered with each test
insofar as you seek to find the best.

Start each task with the end in mind
until the step is the tie that binds.

Courage for faith 
will pave 
the way 
to say:

Design will be conceived.
Goals will be achieved.
Stress will be relieved.
Reward will be believed.

Promises will be kept.
Support will not have left.
Meaning will be what was meant.

The ominous drama of office
will honor the keeping of promise
for the honorable prominence
of love's dominance.

Forgiveness will be shown.
The drone groan will not have blown
the bliss of his kiss.
The fixable will forge forgiveness
for that which is forgivable in this.

Happiness will happen.
Welcome will be in fashion.

Reliability will protect the hallowed halls
with the brightly painted walls
of faith with fidelity
as the melody
for the clarity
of charity.

We will be satisfied in this house of satisfaction
with attraction for the action of benefaction
as the plan for action that is not just abstraction
with respect for life with liberty and the justice
that will thrust us into august robustness
with justness as our substance.

Deliverance will deliver us from ignorance
as the construction for destruction and belief
in being lawyers with destroyers as employers.

Salvation is hope that reaches
by the farthest seas to the nearest beaches.

Mountains were established by the strength of land
being pressed by pressure from beyond and beneath the sands.

The roaring waves of outraged oceans
find solace in silent motions
after the purging surge of roaring rage
releases peace from the pain of the age.

Love for life quiets the tumult
from turbulent tides and the lightning bolt.
The morning and evening
shout for joy as gateways for retrieving
the goodness of peace that reaches
to the ultimate end that the endless awe of awesome teaches.

The power of the sun, wind, water and soil
make grain grow as part of the plan for the least amount of toil.
Irrigation teaches water to reach low
to each place that had not been known
by moisture or had not been shown
the blessing of growth.

Drainage drives deluge into ponds
for holding the drink for the palm's unfolding fronds.

Time is crowned by provision.
Trade, travel and labor's division
will overflow with wealth in a provident vision
of the economy's revision of monetary division.

The wilderness abounds with boundaries
established by pastures. forest trees,
rivers, lakes, seas, deserts and constructed levies.

Meadows are adorned with flocks.
Gates are secured with locks.

Valleys give growth to grain.
Pleasure is cultivated from pain.

Life sings for the joy of living.
This joy is strengthened with thanksgiving.

Liberty is limited by the law of love for life.
Redemption transforms adversity from strife.

Happy are those who are brought near your courts.
Security transcends the structure of the fort.

Kiss bliss.
Don't dismiss this.
It will help you to kiss
what the Swiss missed.

"Like you build a temple, like you build a statue, you build a vow"

Psalm 65
To the leader. A Psalm of David. A Song.
1 Praise is due to you,
   O God, in Zion;
and to you shall vows be performed,
2   O you who answer prayer!
To you all flesh shall come.
3 When deeds of iniquity overwhelm us,
   you forgive our transgressions.
4 Happy are those whom you choose and bring near
   to live in your courts.
We shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house,
   your holy temple.
5 By awesome deeds you answer us with deliverance,
   O God of our salvation;
you are the hope of all the ends of the earth
   and of the farthest seas.
6 By your* strength you established the mountains;
   you are girded with might.
7 You silence the roaring of the seas,
   the roaring of their waves,
   the tumult of the peoples.
8 Those who live at earth’s farthest bounds are awed by your signs;
you make the gateways of the morning and the evening shout for joy.

9 You visit the earth and water it,
   you greatly enrich it;
the river of God is full of water;
   you provide the people with grain,
   for so you have prepared it.
10 You water its furrows abundantly,
   settling its ridges,
softening it with showers,
   and blessing its growth.
11 You crown the year with your bounty;
   your wagon tracks overflow with richness.
12 The pastures of the wilderness overflow,
   the hills gird themselves with joy,
13 the meadows clothe themselves with flocks,
   the valleys deck themselves with grain,
   they shout and sing together for joy.

The voice of my beloved!
   Look, he comes,
leaping upon the mountains,

   or a young stag.
Look, there he stands
   behind our wall,
gazing in at the windows,
   looking through the lattice.
10 My beloved speaks and says to me:
‘Arise, my love, my fair one,
   and come away;
11 for now the winter is past,
   the rain is over and gone.
12 The flowers appear on the earth;
   the time of singing has come,
and the voice of the turtle-dove
   is heard in our land.
13 The fig tree puts forth its figs,
   and the vines are in blossom;
   they give forth fragrance.
Arise, my love, my fair one,
   and come away.

Girls Generation:Summer Comeback


Yori yoku naru

I will sing with love for the generations.
Love resounds from before sensation.

Light is proclaimed faithfully even at night.
Life is a right from the Maker of light.

Intersection reveals connectivity in time.

Connectivity organizes plans for the construction of mine.

The garden of providence provides promise.
It doesn't limit extension to the uncommon drama
for the flawless forest goddess.

The promise is for rights
for Asians, whites, non-whites, Israelites, Shiites, Any-ites
but not phosphorites.

The first right is for life.
The absolute is for the finite.

The others are for liberty and justice for all.
Boundaries are for the strength of the cell wall.

There is the right to education, employment and health care;
to the generation of respect for being and becoming fair; 
to speech, media expression, 
religion, assembly, fair public policy and elections;
for selection in fluxions, flexions, temporary and long term
for investment in trade, travel, communication and
fortification against natural disaster;
for the manager, broadcaster, pastor, post, school or anything
to sing, dance and play for happiness;
to a speedy trial and due process 
only when necessary to redress stress 
from serious offense.

There is the right to justice
without cruelty in punishment;
to providence without constant diminishment.

There is the right to defense when the police are not there;
to affordable insurance and health care.

People need government that will not exploit rights 
for profit from invasion, genocide, the death penalty or fights.

Diplomacy builds the station of each nation without

Extension is lengthened to public policy that supports people

that does not promote the scheme
of increasing advantage 
for the wealthiest to control presidents,
congressional or judicial recreants.

Love and truth lead the way to responsibility with joy.
Happy are those who sing with faith for love to employ.
I will sing with love for the generations.
I will sing with joy for the sustainment of nations.

Psalm 89

Part I
Misericordias Domini

1 Your love, O Lord, for ever will I sing; *
from age to age my mouth will proclaim your faithfulness.

2 For I am persuaded that your love is established for ever; *
you have set your faithfulness firmly in the heavens.

3 "I have made a covenant with my chosen one; *
I have sworn an oath to David my servant:

4 'I will establish your line for ever, *
and preserve your throne for all generations.'"

5 The heavens bear witness to your wonders, O Lord, *
and to your faithfulness in the assembly of the holy ones;

6 For who in the skies can be compared to the Lord? *
who is like the Lord among the gods?

7 God is much to be feared in the council of the holy ones, *
great and terrible to all those round about him.

8 Who is like you, Lord God of hosts? *
O mighty Lord, your faithfulness is all around you.

9 You rule the raging of the sea *
and still the surging of its waves.

10 You have crushed Rahab of the deep with a deadly wound; *
you have scattered your enemies with your mighty arm.

11 Yours are the heavens; the earth also is yours; *
you laid the foundations of the world and all that is in it.

12 You have made the north and the south; *
Tabor and Hermon rejoice in your Name.

13 You have a mighty arm; *
strong is your hand and high is your right hand.

14 Righteousness and justice are the foundations of your throne; *
love and truth go before your face.

15 Happy are the people who know the festal shout! *
they walk, O Lord, in the light of your presence.

16 They rejoice daily in your Name; *
they are jubilant in your righteousness.

17 For you are the glory of their strength, *
and by your favor our might is exalted.
18 Truly, the Lord is our ruler; *
The Holy One of Israel is our King.

Jennifer Lawrence:
Plane Scare

Seijitsu ni kurushimu

The waters reach up to my neck.
The slimy brine I try to climb is worse than a wet deck.

The grip of the rip pulls me from the shore.
It feels like a battle moving toward war.

The water is rising. Waves wash over my face.
The effort to breathe has become a race.

The pull is toward deeper waters.
The depth of wet holds the darkest of daughters.

My voice has grown weary from calling for help.
The kelp invokes shock with a more urgent yelp.

My eyes grow dim from searching, not finding.
The effort to find has become blinding in the binding.

 I have yet to slip the surly bonds of the sea.
Would to dance in the height of sky with wings that make me feel so free.

No wonder of it. The sheer slap of salt water ought to
shine light for my mind to find the way out of the strewn spew
of wetness no longer blue.

It is zeal for your house that consumes me.
I am being swallowed whole by the not me of sea.

When I humbled my soul with asceticism
they said it wasn't necessary for skepticism.

What I did not steal must I now restore?
Can I stop the carnage of the boarhound to the boar?

The wrongs I have done are not hidden from truth.
When only wrongs are counted, truth isn't true.

I have become a stranger to my kin.
I became an alien to that which I had been.

Will I become a byline for the evening news?
Sometimes when you win you lose.

Death became a naughty tease.
He was like a lover that could not be pleased.
He beckoned lightly in the dark.
He was as strong as he was stark.

He promised relief from pain and desperation.
It was like my soul could choose separation.

Insults have broken my heart.
Does this brokenness allow for another start?

It is for your sake that I have born reproach.
This is the time that I become my own ardent coach.

My prayer is for salvation.
Liberation will be my libation.

Rescue me from the tow
that seeks to sink me below.

Do not let the deep swallow me whole.
I got this sudden feeling. I might want to learn to bowl.

Draw near to me. Blessed shore!
You are the newest promise for all that I adore.

Freedom from the current's tow,
release me from the need to know.

Wash me up on the bed of land.
I cannot walk. I cannot stand.

I look for pity like a dog looks for a bone.
I look to share but I am all alone.

I look for comfort in what is now unknown.
No one appears. I feel cold as stone.

I leave perception in the harsh night air.
I lose my sight. I don't care.

Salvation saved my soul from separation
but I have no strength. There is only the lack of desperation.

I feel so cold.
Will I live until I grow old?

Psalm 69
To the leader: according to Lilies. Of David.

1 Save me, O God,
   for the waters have come up to my neck.
2 I sink in deep mire,
   where there is no foothold;
I have come into deep waters,
   and the flood sweeps over me.
3 I am weary with my crying;
   my throat is parched.
My eyes grow dim
   with waiting for my God.
4 More in number than the hairs of my head
   are those who hate me without cause;
many are those who would destroy me,
   my enemies who accuse me falsely.
What I did not steal
   must I now restore?
5 O God, you know my folly;
   the wrongs I have done are not hidden from you.
Do not let those who hope in you be put to shame because of me,
   O Lord God of hosts;
do not let those who seek you be dishonoured because of me,
   O God of Israel.
7 It is for your sake that I have borne reproach,
   that shame has covered my face.
8 I have become a stranger to my kindred,
   an alien to my mother’s children.

9 It is zeal for your house that has consumed me;
   the insults of those who insult you have fallen on me.
10 When I humbled my soul with fasting,*
   they insulted me for doing so.
11 When I made sackcloth my clothing,
   I became a byword to them.
12 I am the subject of gossip for those who sit in the gate,
   and the drunkards make songs about me.

13 But as for me, my prayer is to you, O Lord.
   At an acceptable time, O God,
   in the abundance of your steadfast love, answer me.
With your faithful help 14rescue me
With your faithful help 14rescue me
   from sinking in the mire;
let me be delivered from my enemies
   and from the deep waters.
15 Do not let the flood sweep over me,
   or the deep swallow me up,
   or the Pit close its mouth over me.
16 Answer me, O Lord, for your steadfast love is good;
   according to your abundant mercy, turn to me.
17 Do not hide your face from your servant,
   for I am in distress—make haste to answer me.
18 Draw near to me, redeem me,
   set me free because of my enemies.
19 You know the insults I receive,
   and my shame and dishonour;
   my foes are all known to you.
20 Insults have broken my heart,
   so that I am in despair.
I looked for pity, but there was none;
   and for comforters, but I found none.

Thank you for what is right
about experiment. 

It's fair, not bent. It's not a sacrament.
The element tells you how it's intelligent.

The exploration
of experience for truth 
with liberty and justice 
is informed 
by the exercise in ruling out 
that which is false.

Truth calls for walls.
Boundaries stall the thrall
for a new ball.

Government is an exploration
in leadership for law.

It's not a claw
for misdirection by the punishment flaw.

Industry produces products
and services for use.

Media is not the muse for abuse.
The news is not a noose. 
Does the public have to read between the lies
to find truth?

Community evaluates claims
about law, products and services.

Skepticism provides 
the ground to test without appearing nervous.

Relationship builds trust with

Trust constructs social agility.

Know that we are products
who participate in production
by design.

We have personal and collective mind.
It's how we see what is good in time.

We have been made
and we are in the making.
We have been produced
and we are in production.

Logic uses reduction and construction.
Reason uses measure for deduction or induction.

Time gauges truth
for leadership into what is right
for the future based on what has 
worked in the past for goodness.

There are times when doing what we should is best.

When the deer depart for shelter
in the heart of darkness, the turkeys
stay near what is dear about the home.

Thanksgiving is shown 
in relation to the convenience for what's known.

You are not alone in the struggle
for survival. 

Progress has been made by building consensus
with revival.

Rejoice for your part
in the art of working out salvation.
Safety and health are good for anyone.

Enter the gates for redemption 
with thanksgiving.
Gratitude benefits the living.

Move into the courtyard
dancing and singing with praise
for the rays that save.

Set the sighs aside for the grave.

Thank you for what is right
about experiment. 
The elements speak truth 
to intelligence.

100 Jubilate Deo

1 Be joyful in the Lord, all you lands; *
serve the Lord with gladness
and come before his presence with a song.

2 Know this: The Lord himself is God; *
he himself has made us, and we are his;
we are his people and the sheep of his pasture.
3 Enter his gates with thanksgiving;
go into his courts with praise; *
give thanks to him and call upon his Name.

4 For the Lord is good;
his mercy is everlasting; *
and his faithfulness endures from age to age.

Salvation comes by faith.
Redemption is achieved with grace.

Liberty in the law
is that which preserves our awe.

Justice is the goal for all.
The goal must be fulfilled for those who call.

Cruelty in punishment does not correct violence in crime.
Detention is for the correction of injustice in time.

The law is for civil and human rights.
Equity is for economic delight.

Rights are for life, liberty and happiness.
Extension reaches from east to west.

You are the designer for paradise.
Your majesty is infused in each device.

Praise is raised from infants and the old.
It is raised for life from the timid to the bold.

You have set up a stronghold for our defense.
Safety and good health are our protection at length.

When I consider heaven and earth as your creation
I am filled with wonder at each new sensation.

The planets orbit the sun with the law of gravity.
Galaxies move from a point in space as the ground for sanity.

Space is the place for the containment of time.
Matter and energy are forms that transcend mind.

What is being that you are mindful of us?
An authentic person expresses your trust.

You have made us a little lower than angels.
We are adorned with honor by the life of our cells.

The preservation of nature is our responsibility.
Flora and fauna are food for thought in our ability.

The construction of constructs,
and the production of products

1Lord, our Sovereign,
   how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory above the heavens.
2   Out of the mouths of babes and infants
you have founded a bulwark because of your foes,
   to silence the enemy and the avenger.

3 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
   the moon and the stars that you have established;
4 what are human beings that you are mindful of them,
* that you care for them?
5 Yet you have made them a little lower than God,*
   and crowned them with glory and honour.
6 You have given them dominion over the works of your hands;
   you have put all things under their feet,
7 all sheep and oxen,
   and also the beasts of the field,
8 the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea,
   whatever passes along the paths of the seas.
9Lord, our Sovereign,
   how majestic is your name in all the earth!
