Another day in the box waiting for nightfall.
That is when caged siren sings, mournfully, hauntingly.
This is where our stage play starts.
Take the ride your tethered mind could never allow.
We have met the enemy, for they are us, just one shadow away.
Human newborn imbued with alien soul.
Where the human soul is taken, if it survives, who knows?
She screams for her child. Deeply under sedation,
it is but hallucination. No one hears her. None understand
why she insists this child is not hers.
After months of constant reinforcement, she accepts.
This child is her own. The child, not so clearly
subject to social norms, cannot accept this mam,
or for that matter, this sham society, as its rightful place.
Pitched sweep of surreal pageantry,
fantastic yet detailed with lucidity,
captured from halls of enchanted lamps
begging to enlighten.
Today is about
pure bright reds
Fruit of Eden
to carry in sultry saddlebags
for sustenance in high desert.
Ride the current.
Breathe the moment.
Embody radiant energies
Impeccable action is full and complete defense.
To embrace vast edgeless awareness.
To love exuberant outrageous self
is reward and salvation.
That small flickering insistence
finds smolder of resource within
to make another plan
when broken path
has been obscured
forgotten flowers on
fields of war.
Where does loathing fear originate?
Why do we insist on a myth of childhood bliss
when growth grapples intertwined in plight?
Drive to acclimate:
decide whose got the might that makes them right,
how to win favorable gaze -- who to hail;
who to hate.
Grief, anxiety, any emotional signal prized as such.
Instead of fight or flee, impulse to ask emergent feeling:
what have you come to advise?
Often telling stories rise distilled from ambient well of
Journeying around the realm of bliss does not deny experience
from other sources. It helps to clarify lines, strings, coloration
outside of fraudulent choice to kill or be killed.
Pearls iridescent from the Sun
Diamonds extracted from the Moon
Gold-dusted silks from
Valued in danger, chances of doom in transit
from there to here.
Fine old wood,
tasting of Earth,
eloquently regales with tales
sage and pure.
Young Percival took knight’s oath seriously. To protect and to serve King and country.
The old King afflicted, declining, perhaps dying. Soul sickness they said.
Crops fail to thrive. Floods, droughts, oppressive climate. The peasants too sicken,
die, live while they do hungry with poverty, disarray.
In a vision, Percival beholds the Holy Grail – dazzling jewels upon a golden chalice,
generating elixir of immortality.
Filled with such reflection, he hastens in the direction of adventure. He leaves the dying kingdom
to its decline, in search of a promised land’s magical curative power. Thinking not of King or country,
roused by urgent ecstatic pounding he knows to be
his own heart.
Where do you ride, fair Percival?
Off to find the healer’s Grail?
Learn your song and tell your tale.
Become a son of Sky and Earth
to return with the wizardry you gain
some wondrous day.
Break the curse.
Expel the kingdom’s pain.
He seeks the skills of seers, demons, subtle sorceries and charms. Growing ever
stronger, healthy exercise, happy purpose enrich his will. Over terrible trials
and deceptions, treacherous opposition, ever nearer his divine prize appears.
These trials are key. They test mettle while bestowing lessons, confidence,
resource acquisition, glimmerings of wisdom. The prize glitters, shines, glows
brilliantly in auric distance, delineates focus, a clear point, fixed star to contemplate
through twisting, turning, misty mythic roads.
Sometimes the brick is yellow. Some paths are more intuitive, furtive steps in dark,
brambly forest, hostile terrain.
Percival knows what a hero does. A hero perseveres. A hero scales the tower to free
the enslaved damsel; goes where others dare not tread because fear is his worthy companion.
Trudging, fighting, sometimes dazed, momentarily forgetting his quest, he perseveres.
He need but give pause, look beyond to see his Grail shining, calling him forward.
Of course, he reaches the Grail, discovers the codes, incantations, ensorcels dragons,
defies giants, generally blazes through to capture his destiny.
Returning triumphant, he brings joy to the kingdom, drop-kicks the curse, cures the old King
of soul malady, is gifted the throne to wisely guide his subjects into delightful prosperity.
So the story goes.
