Summary: I looked at a page of notes for a new research project and this, with very few alterations, is what I saw.

Does inhibition
or activation
between normal and
depressed individuals?

Listen to the
layers of simultaneous sound;
can you hear the bells, birds and the sea,
the pacing heart, ticking clock, clanging hammers,
the glistening harp, the bubbling diver
and the woman
Would you feel better with music?
Or silence?

How amazing! Perhaps a new anthology of 'reality poems' (is that the right phrase?) could ensue in similar vein?

It's strange how many different places reveal a poem, this is very thoughtful.

isnt that the beauty of poetry that so much inspiration comes form virtually every thing you see or hear

I child playing, smiling, crying

lovers walking

a funeral

flowers bees


hate, pain, happiness etc etc

you dont have to have any charachters , you odnt have to describe the place just the emotion

hilary these are beautiful words isn't it wonderful that just on this site there are so many people who can write such beauty

This is fantastic, the fact that you sort of found this, that perhaps it was written almost randomly. It's got me thinking too, answering the question it asks...

Thanks Sarah, some of the work we do involves breaking into the circular processing that both depressed and healthy people engage in. We were using a CD we had made with layers of the sounds in the 'poem', hence the list of sounds. Cheers, Hilary
