Age Group: Adult

I hear no bells ring
Silence stood
Between me and them
All of it I have not known
Why the sound of the south
Had no vibrations or no tone
And it was a message
There is no fire there
No snakes
No salamanders
Nothing to bring me the Sun
Or my warmth
A sword in my minds eye shimmers
And slices into the earth deep
I am there asleep
Where roots and vines
And all earth worms dwell
And shadows come
As the earth scents my flesh
And I said I was enlightened
Though I know deep inside
No fire burns
And such shadows I now face
Where energies of hatred still flow
In the red wells of these depths I know
My own sacrifice
And it is of these selfish ways
Darker the moon becomes by night
And by day
Colder I become
Reaching catacombs that ebb and flow
Reaching depths of my own hell
Hell to me is a mere imbalance of mind
Lacking the thirst of harmony
Drawing on the scales of justice
The fool falls forth
And down, down, down
Deep into the lair
Where I am there
I hear the sighing cries of a child
Screaming out and hair is wild
I hear those in war fight for freedom
I hear those in words slice with the fork of their tongues
I hear the screams of a winding vortex
Deep inside the well of Cerridwen
This has an “affect” on weather
And it slams and pierces the mountains
It vibrates through our flesh, our blood, our bones
Our being
And enlightenment is not all encompassed and seeing
Not until the sprout reaches all of this and more
The Earth
The Creatures
The Waters
The Sky
The Sun
The Stars
The Moon
The Planets
Every where the sprout will reach
Until it is old and ready to move on
Return, return, return, return

And where the cloaked man walks the path
By way of light or not
And where the cloaked woman walks the path
By way of light or not
A barren field bares no stalks
A tree without leaves
A flower without blooms
A ditch without a stream of flowing water
How can this be?

Raise the stalks by way of earth and fire
Air and Water
Raise the trees by way of wind and morning dew
Earth and Sunlight
And by the twilight, colors merged and spewed
Raise the flowers and their blooms
By way of all the elements

And I am these
All these energies
Living and of dead
Returned in me
