Healing Quest (December 2017)

 

With shield and sword
I enter into unknown places
to heal myself from this malaise
Guides I have
who appear at need
definitely not at will.
These places are soft and illusory
yet the dangers are real
Will I lose myself or find
that which will fix
the broken spaces in heart and body?

The Light Within the Darkness

 

“People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”
— Carl Jung

 

Too long have I been blinded
by sleight of hand candles
held by charismatic fools.
I was a moth diving in
losing myself in their flames
Badly singed I turned away from all
within my darkness I found the true light
calling from within
empowering, enabling
I discovered self pride and self will
and a light brighter than any candle could be
Pulled within I could find myself outside the well.
— G A Rosenberg

A Night’s Dream

 

“For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream”
.- Vincent Van Gogh

 

The Night sky brings dreams and hunting
We run the forest as wolves
bringing down our prey
and eating in the moonlight
We howl our victory
and make love until dawn’s arrival
— G A Rosenberg

 

Blessed Be, G
