Preponderance of dreams
Knelt in supplication
Inward pointing state
Guided meditation

Eddies of Frankincense
Curling up in the smoke
Lifting sprits gently
A false sense of hope

The Mystic's Box sits still
Auspiciously idle
A reverend approach
An empty idol

Wailing ensues promtly
With great gnashing of teeth
Depth of the soul revealed
A cleansing so to speak

The lump of coal long dead
Your clothes have all been rent
Laying exposed now
Forest as your tent

Sins are washed; outlook high
A transcendental bliss
The Mystic's Box cold
Forfeit the angel's kiss

Great job again on your poetry.
You are so very good at it.
Someday I expect you to write a poem for me! :)

This seems dark however. What inspired you?

My neighbor brought over a beautiful heirloom brass incense burning chest as a gift for my daughter. I simply strung together a series of images which came to mind after an explanation of the chest by my neighbor.

Why you using that freaky avatar on me?

Over the last several months (what with my sometimes very high comment count) I've been using the same avatar for all replies to all comments as the one I used for each post. It makes following the thread (for me anyway) easier.

I total understand your logic on that!
Just wanted to make sure you weren't giving me the 'evil eye'! :)

Perish the thought! Are you back? Did you have fun?
galinda822 at 2007-03-28 02:30 (UTC) (Link)
I wouldn't exactly say I had fun! I ended up having to be on the phone quite a bit.

At least DRP was there to keep us entertained!

Now, I really would have had fun if you had been there! :)

I spent far less time on the phone than I thought I was going to as well, but the toilet became inoperative, and I had to purchase a new one on the advice of the plumber, who's since departed as we await for the Master Plumber to come survey the damage. I'm sore afraid its going to be another night of no sleep.

Hooray for DRP!

Well, I'd say you're not having much fun either. We both need some fun!!!! ;)

You need the plumber to install the toilet? I can come over to do it for you if you want. I've had to replace 2 - don't ask!

I was wondering when that was coming

Things that nake you go hmmmmm....

Eric:

Sorry, for the delay in getting back to you on the poem, but I have been trying to catch up on everything. I thought the poem was vibrantly alive in exploring the dark inner struggle of a soul seeking refuge on an vacant avenue of store bought proclamations for ascension and having realized the utter emptiness of seeking something outside of the real "Mystic Box"... that of the heart or Spirit...Liberation often does not come until you have been torn asunder laying naked in the light of your own Mind-...Freedom from false belief systems and a genuine collapse of coined customs are often better and worth forfeiting the angle's kiss... so to speak. Sorry, if this is chop-chop..LOL I will perhaps go further tomorrow!

The images that flashed within my minds eye were so vivid and fluid that I do indeed give it two thumbs up!

The Mystic Majah...LOL

Re: Things that nake you go hmmmmm....

Wow! Most people ask me what my poetry means (as if), but Carla very aptly questions my inspiration. And you - you tell me what you thought. Thank you.

For me as well it was a series of images that I tried to weave together in a metaphoric tapestry of semblance.

Oh Yeah...

Oh yeah! I forgot to tell you killer Avatar. I went to see "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" when I was 14 years old and was forever altered...LOL
