A Time Celebrant
(Change cast March 05, 2023, 10:11 AM EST)
Attending / Waiting
Although you behaved foolishly,
falling into the trap of your impatience,
yet with fear stuck deep in your throat
as the three unknown factors descended,
you welcomed your guests
and learned to curb the hidden
recesses of malice in your heart.
Little did you know these calamities
held the seeds of your true germination,
and you would be planted
like pine on an outcrop, to flourish
near the mountain’s summit.
(Time Celebrants, poems written out of encounters with the I Ching, The Book of Changes.) ((Also, I struggle to get these posts to render correctly in the WP Reader, so if viewing on that platform, it might be worth going through to the actual website to view the post as it was intended. Peace.))
