The Foundations And Pillars Are Gone

What is it?

A poem that I made back in maybe 2011.

The foundations and pillars are gone.

A fallen house remains.

As the survivors crawl away divided and lost until the day that they die, and fade away… fade away… fade away.

-John Jr (2011)

What Was The Start Of All This?

Chrono Cross Opening, Title Screen & Attract Mode (The Radical Dreamers Edition, Switch, 2022)

What is it?

A quote or poem from the opening of the 1999 role-playing video game Chrono Cross:

Source: Wikiquote

What was the start of all this?

When did the cogs of fate begin to turn?

Perhaps it is impossible to grasp that answer now,

From deep within the flow of time…

But, for a certainty, back then,

We loved so many, yet hated so much,

We hurt others and were hurt ourselves…

Yet even then we ran like the wind,

Whilst our laughter echoed,

Under cerulean skies…

The Sand Beach As Gray As A Dead Cheek

What is it?

A quote or poem or eulogy by God Emperor Leto Atreides II from maybe his Stolen Journals in the book God Emperor Of Dune by Frank Herbert.

Video/Audio

Dune Talk: Leto’s Sacrifice and The Golden Path

Quote/Poem (By Wikiquote)

The sand beach as gray as a dead cheek,
A green tideflow reflects cloud ripples;
I stand on the dark wet edge.
Cold foam cleanses my toes.
I smell driftwood smoke.

Words I wrote when told of Ghani’s death,

God Emperor Leto Atreides II | God Emperor Of Dune | Frank Herbert

Poem Portraits – Your Dream Has Struck The Sound

The image above is a Poem Portrait that was created by using the word Dream as the base for an AI to create a poem with an image through the Poem Portraits website.

The poem that the AI created from the word Dream that I submitted was:

Your dream has struck the sound, My love is half-deceived, the sight of the frost.

I found out about this website thanks to a news article by The Verge called Google’s Latest AI Art Project Turns Your Face Into A ‘Poem Portrait’.

Google also has a post about this called Create A Personalized Poem, With The Help Of AI.

The end,

-John Jr
