Inner Sun Rises



Inner sun rises on wings of light,
Riches hidden by fear of darkness

She speaks in rivers and waves of fire,
Revealing all that is known and unknown

Time to be, to surrender.

Here's my entry for the Trifextra Weekend Challenge! :D 33 words exactly again, for the fun of it :)

This speaks to me on many levels... primarily tho, it is about life. Becoming, living, and the shift of ages we're going through lately with everything coming to the surface, including inner truth that sometimes burns on its way out.

There's some Zen concepts in there... A bit about the flow of kundalini through the bodies (physical, mental, emotional) akin to the layers of Gaia - the She in the writing (or am I the She? Hmmmm) The earth and its inhabitants are intimately linked, and we are all deeply beautiful - even when we don't remember.

It speaks to me of my own life, and myself, and my inner self, too. Feeling blessed, in control, out of control and everything sandwiched in between. Time to be, to surrender...yep, that about sums it up.


On to the weekend challenge.  As you'll recall from your elementary science class days, the structure of the earth can be divided most simply into three sections: core, mantle, crust.  Here's a diagram.

Give us 33 words from it.  Interpret the prompt however you wish--literal, metaphorical, or somewhere in between.  If you would like to use the image on your own blog, you must properly credit it.

  1. Beautiful! I have found that in order for me "to be" I must surrender. It takes practice though! Love your words!

  3. To surrender isn't as easy as it is cracked up to be. More power to those who can. Very well written. Very evocative.

    1. Agreed - tho I get the feeling that surrender isn't an all or nothing deal, at least for most people (or maybe even for all people!), but more of a practice. Maybe it can become habit!
