“Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart.
Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”
— C.G. Jung
I drop a penny into my well
and wait for the landing echo.
There is much to see and hear inside
The sound of changing dreams
The sad song of loneliness
playing at odds with the din of companionship
The anguish of uncertainty and doubt
with a counterpoint of hope
yet still the penny drops.
I find gods and demons exchanging masques
shifting belief structures in runed circles
hymns and dirges, invocational chants
and still the penny drops
It may never land
yet with each layer I come closer to the centre
of my soul’s heart awakening.
— G A Rosenberg
