Morphing (for Earthweal)

Photo by Lisa Fotios on

“The stars are closer than you think.”
The shaman left me with this admonition,
hobbling away with his stick of gnarled ash.
There was a look in his eye,
glint of a star — his soul,
still stalking this barren land.
As the day began to break,
blue shafts were piercing orange and red,
a warning; creation speaking
and thought becoming instant form;
a mounting cumulus cloud,
shape of a lion’s head.
“The world is mind,” he’d said,
“dreaming us into existence
and what we may be.”
The cloud soon morphed
to show a crescent Moon,
then Venus, morning and evening star,
companions for my journey home.

Bible Thoughts: Psalm 19

Photo by Hristo Fidanov on

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handiwork.”

Psalm 19 KJV

Having been fascinated by astrology and astronomy all my life and doing charts for over 30 years, this psalm has come to mean much more to me as the years go by.

We have lost our sense of wonder, have taken too much for granted. A sense of hopelessness has grown, and especially over the last twelve months.

I look at the sky and all of nature differently these days; it is truly wondrous. We are not all lost and lonely souls. We are sacred beings in a sacred creation.

Verse of the Day

Photo by Athena on

“For he looketh to the ends of the earth, and seeth under the whole heaven;”

Job 28, verse 24

Today I opened the bible randomly and pointed at this verse.

What does this verse suggest about the nature of our universe? These words and many others like this, were once truly believed.

Considering the state of our ‘civilisation’, is our supposed enlightenment benefitting us?

The Walk (for Earthweal challenge)

I must have strolled this ancient shore,
leaving no footprints in the sand,
seen the infant sun spill his light
over jagged horizons,
the glowing Moon ascend into sparse sky
to ride the assembly of stars,
a firmament at once remote
and intimate.
If you talk in eons — I see in seconds;
new life’s struggle to be born,
a fossil falling to the sand
from a cliff’s crumbling edifice.
For as I exist at the beginning
so do I persist until the end,
though I am not made of stars,
I merely follow the word
and the breath.
