Feel the cool Earth under your feet Make a connection with our Mother Green and brown swirl and meet Spread her love to one and other Bull, Goat, and Virgin dance To the song of the elusive elves Hug a tree - take a chance Open up to Her nurturing within ourselves See pentacles when the card is turned Be earthy but do not covet material things So the lesson is internalized and learned From Gaea’s tarot wisdom springs Sapling to tree to rotting log replenishing Earth Softly nourishing the sleeping seed with the promise of rebirth
Sonnet to Fire
The eternal spark was said to be flame Replacing Chaos with wondrous life So it was from blazing Fire that everything came Within Creation Fire was rife See the Archer hunt with the Lion and Ram The bow is nocked with three rays The Awen is creativity’s Dam Internally, passion and inspiration ablaze! The Red Jin touches the dragon tarot The cards transform into wands Only to be pierced by the three tipped arrow And the bard’s pen finally responds Fire’s triad is truly easy to see With passion and inspiration magick flares within me
Sonnet to Air
Breathe the incense – expand the mind Embrace the evanescent Air Intellect and reason forever entwined Seeking answers to myth and prayer Twins and Water Bearer carry the Scales To balance pundits and poets For stark intelligence without emotional hues Is like a diamond lacking facets The faeries play with the oracle cards Which transmute to swords in their tiny hands While sharp wit is the ambrosia of bards Fantasy’s sweet nectar makes many demands Intellect is needed to change history to song But bereft of emotions is intrinsically wrong
Sonnet to Water
Dive into the well to feel Water’s reviving embrace Seek out the primordial wisdom of the Salmon Roots of the World Tree create a sacred space Bringing relief to ignorance’s strife and famine Crab and Fish use the Scorpion’s sting To paralyze benightedness and disease Healing flows from the mystical spring Therapeutic elixir for the seeker, Earth, and trees The cards turn into Cups at the mermaids’ demand To capture three drops from the Water Ignoring an angry goddess’s firm command They heal and teach the salmon’s daughter That wisdom and healing are connected Mind and body introspected
I agree with OakWyse - made me want to get up and dance!!
Lovely and I enjoyed the layers of meaning.
It is precisely because our present life is so inseparably linked with desire that we must make use of desire’s tremendous energy if we wish to transform our life into something transcendental. -Lama Thubten Yeshe
There are two ways to look at life. One is as though nothing is a miracle; the other is as though everything is. -Albert Einstein
