We are the microcosmic

reflection of the microcosmos

tinkle on the bevelled glass

of our eternal souls

mirror images of those foretold

faeries dance on the interdimensional threshold

of light to brighten cold harbingers

who have sold their freedom for meaningless gold

We are the truth untold

breaking barriers of old

Human form breath life anew

extend our limbs that grew

inward to our vanity

To believe is to know

that all is possible with an Ohm of life

Release our self inflicted

rugged cross of strife

Ahriman nourish all souls alike

Through a blast of sound

a vocal windpipe

When IS the last time I mentioned that you are one of my favorite poets?

Did you read this aloud? No - then do so and you'll see WHy you are one of my favorite poets.

Ooooooh! I love this!

What imagery and such depth

in all its meaning!

This stanza is my favorite,

though it was very hard to choose

just one, they are all glowing!

"mirror images of those foretold

faeries dance on the interdimensional threshold

of light to brighten cold harbingers

who have sold their freedom for meaningless gold"

Hugs,

Maria

This demands to be read aloud. The imagery is startling, with a fresh conjunction of concepts.

I especially love:

To believe is to know

that all is possible with an Ohm of life

Wonderful!

I'm so glad to be here again among you kindred spirits. Truth is, this poem was inspired by Ahriman itself, both male and female... came to me in a dream while we were sitting in the middle of a crop circle somewhere here in the midwest. I just finished reading "Secrets in the Field" by Freddy Silva. This book confirms everything I always felt in my heart. Since then, I have found inspiration in object, both anement and inanement around me. Then Ahriman came to me and explained the science of our very being, confirming once again. They say 3 times a charm. I am brimming with excitement from this experience. More to come later. Must go observe fire-works now.

I love you all.
