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.
