Fool’s Journey to Enlightenment (2020 Re-post)


Fool’s journey to enlightenment

One life
Two hands
Three in any holy trinity
Four cardinal points
Five sacred elements
Six, love and sex, contain sacredness
Seven chakras to shine clear
Eight Sabbats in the wheel
Nine, three fold law times three
Ten Sephirots emanating divine light
Eleven mysterious knowledge insights
Twelve full moons, and one blue orange
Thirteen witches in the magic coven

Nineteen, loving wisdom hope govern
Twenty-Twenty karmic judgment appear, grow better, renew, global catastrophe draws near
Twenty One light’s biannual turning point
Twenty Two spiritual paths to ascend the three

One hundred words to set you free

Re-post comment:

It’s nearly midnight. My mind is spinning. So this felt like a good choice for Wandering the Archives Wednesday.

Enjoy!


First idea, one hundred lines of poetry, counting up. Before the tenth, hmm, maybe if I had a week to work. Edited idea, one hundred words.

My favorite prompt of the week, The Sunday Muse, celebrates its hundredth.

Also linked to The Writers’ Pantry and Promote Yourself Monday.

Happy 100th Musing everyone!

Freight Train Nine

For nine years, time stretched our longing into a freight train of stored emotions.

Today, nine seconds of longing is too long. Our passion, a runaway freight train of unshared devotions.

Nine nights in eachothers embrace, touch longing replace. Not even such a freight train stretch can slake our lust’s rhythmic explosions.

Written for today’s challenge prompt at Go Dog Go. Three words, freight train, longing, nine. I enjoy this “flash prompt”. Writing the first thing that pops up, and only for a maximum of fifteen minutes.

It’s fun, challenging, and allow you to find new ways to write.

Midsummer Poppies

When dusk is night long
Lasting until dawn
Poppies vibrant song
Siren fey dreams spawn

Thrumming in the veins
Passion’s deep well
Growing like the grains
By hypnotic smell

Hear Midsummer’s call
Wonders fill your heart
Feel the fire of Sol
Drink her heedy quart

Frolic and feel joy
Bathe in love red lust
Freedom life buoy
By starlight souls trust

Bask in Everglow
Caressed by the breeze
Rest content below

Nights are magical right now. The light is otherworldly. Flowers shine with their own light and lend a seducing perfume to the air.

Dancing Goddess Worship

She slips off her shoes and socks
Puts on her favorite music
Forgetting time
Inhabiting another space
Allowing the beat to rule
Immersing in the melodic journey
Her motions joyous offerings
Bodily prayers of sweat and toil
Dancing Goddess worship
Dark depressive demons foil

Return To New Normal

What will the world look after the pandemic? How will the geopolitical landscape change? How will that affect me personally?
Will one catastrophe lead us to accept responsibility for, and take action against, the looming human made climate emergency.

Even before the pandemic my life where in flux, changing. It still is.
A history of unprocessed trauma, a newly acquired trauma activating full PTSD and leading to major depression, will do that to a life. But now the urgency to imagine a better future, for all humans, feels even more acute.

So what should I do? Change career?
Change residence from city to wildwood?
First step. Change myself to the core! Rewriting those programs that prohibits self-love, true self, esteem, courage to live my truth, my goals, my dreams.

In springs pale rebirth
I see the truth of seasons
Birth, growth, change, rebirth

Beyond Crisis

The artist says it ‘evokes the building of a world with more solidarity and more humanity’

From vantage high
Floating with birds in the sky
A girl appear to our eye

My world lies in tattered ruins
Tomorrow on hold as millions sickens
Future unsure as planet fills with poison

Alone on a mountaintop
She despair to hope swap
Humanity hand-in-hand in co-op

Let us rise from the ashes
Together with compassionate actions
Build a new green world for all humans

The other day I ran across pictures of Guillaume Legros artwork Beyond Crisis. Ever since then It’s been on my mind. And today together with Go Dog Go’s Tuesday Writing Prompt it became a poem.

She Tasted Like Memory

I

He arose in historys murky fog
At first his undead longevity pleased him
He reveled in seeing the bigger picture
Humans can not, due to their short span
He delighted in play with susceptible people

II

As the centuries wore on, amusement wore off
Humanity never seemed to learn over time
His games all played out predictively
Eventually he became creake and old
Stale in his mind and ways
Remnant of the dark ages

III

History repeated itself again
Pandemic racing the now connected globe
Modern humanity reduced to medieval fears
Where’s the contagion?
Locking down and freezing in fear and panic

IV

Quoriously, he found a pocket of calm
Far to the North
There he found something he thought lost to the world
A taste he hadn’t had in ages
A searching enlightened soul

She tasted like memory

I sometimes get an urge to write stories on the form of poems. This prompt did just that. Other examples is The ivory lighthouse and Fluitschip Zwaluw which happens to be part of the same larger tale.

Swirling Colors of my Mind

Photo by ahmed adly on Pexels.com

Empathy and vivid imagination
Currently leads to fear and trepidation
Chained to see every suffering situation

Death and sickness
Critical equipment shorness
Avalanche economic foreclosures

Swirling colors of my mind
Dark and horrible hues of every kind
Hoping a silver lining to find

Atom Bombs helping science
Hope behind resilience
Compassion during pestilence

Trust and vivid imagination
Now leads to bright grounding meditation
Comforted in divine love and wisdom given

Love and care
Learn and grow
Let true self show

Swirling colors of my mind
Dark shot trough by bright color of every kind
Trust love to care to love to find

Care for nature
Every living creature
Change human behaviour

This is a poem, a meditation, a prayer and a manifesto.

Inspired by recent meditations, the “Colors of my mind” prompt at GoDogGo, and the seventh GloPoWriMo prompt – to be inspired by a news article. I found this.

Whale sharks: Atomic tests solve age puzzle of world’s largest fish

A whale shark foraging for plankton
GETTY IMAGES
From the late 1940s, several nations including the US, the Soviet Union, Great Britain, France and China conducted atomic bomb tests in different locations.
...
One side effect of all these explosions was the doubling of an atom type, or isotope, called Carbon-14 in the atmosphere.
Over time, every living thing on the planet has absorbed this extra Carbon-14 which still persists.
...
The study indicated that these creatures do actually live an incredibly long time.
"The absolute longevity of these animals could be very, very old, possibly as much as 100-150 years old," said Dr Meekan.
