The Egg

• February 26, 2012 • Comments (0)

As part of ‘Seeds In The City’, the video is a 1 minute inspirational film-poetry project based on a poem by Leonard Wolf: ‘The Egg’ – In a fast pace world, where we’re constantly distracted by noises and ‘special effects’, nature reminds us with its simplicity, perfection and harmony that there’s no greater beauty and marvel than itself, reconnecting us to love and support of life.

From a poem by:
Leonard Wolf
(The Stone Cicada and Other Poems, 2001)

Directed, filmed & edited by:
Gennaro Ambrosino

Recited by:
Kristina Georgiou

Concept and Song-track by:

“There are days, like today,
This minute,
When I fall in love
With an egg.
Its seamlessness,

The easy way in which it stands for
Almost anything.
Protective wobbling.

For logicians,
The egg’s
Insults the mind.
An egg,

By no means
Imitates the circle
Having no
Beginning and no end.

Ask that conundrum,
God, the first
Egg maker
Who worked
Without tools

Achieving a fine
Mat finish and any number
Of colors
From which come
Cluckers and flyers that sing.

Ask Him how,
Facing that smoothness
So unlike a face
And yet implying




Every way it turns –
How was
The beautiful
The beautiful
Egg made?”
