"Into The Mystic", collaboration with poet Gwylym Owen ( & music of Van Morrison)

Hi there,

I'm glad to collaborate for a second time with the english poet Gwylym Owen.

I proposed him to wrote a poem inspired on this photograph I took in Barcelona (August 2010) and in a splendid song composed by Van Morrison "Into the Mystic". You will be able to listen this song activating the player below the Gwylym's prose.

I hope you will enjoy this new collaboration and I invite you to click here in order to see our other artistic collaboration.



For the mystical mind fly's, into the oblivion of a souls eye
Trusting an unseen plan, being guided by the unknown
And now we fly, we fly on to, our grand destined land
Blinded by the light and obscured views, of constant truths
Showered rays in musical arrays and light waves
Lantern high and in the eye, of narrowed, certain pathways.
Heading toward the higher frequencies, resonates being
Now start seeing, looking out a window: No! It does not glow.
Now listen and look within your heart, be smart from the start.
Tuning, playing, tuning, playing, tuning bestowing.
Always walking toward the light, always mysterious in the plight.
Listen to thee, now let your mind see and let the glee run free
The mystery of mysteries, the souls key, the you and me.

by Gwylym Owen, February 2011

Quite beautiful photo taken of the beautiful & modern architecture of Barcelona!! You captured this building so well in this photo - it seems that you were looking & shooting the photo from the bottom of the building upwards to the sky. Great effect with the sunlight beaming down (it made the photo all the more beautiful) & also the angle at which you took the photo.
The words in the song "As we sailed into the mystic" "Let your soul & spirit fly into the mystic" captures the photo exactamente!! Also - the phrase "Together we'll fold into the mystic" how very poetic & exactly the perfect song for this photo.
I also like the melody of the song - great for partner dancing & it also has a 60's feel re: the melody).
If you ever have any question about whether or not your photos are professional - you just have to take a look at this photo (simply magnificent). Bravo, JC!
