By the Spiral Meet

fleet-orbs-mandala-s

With vortex come helix come eye–
by the spiral meet.
Fleet orbs and looping dancers
answer root with seed.
Feed questions to the air
where opposites twine.
Shine and darken the sky.
Flying and falling round,
ground welcoming myth–
with vortex come helix come eye.

A circular poem and piece of art for Jane Dougherty’s poetry challenge this week.

    I love the rhythm of this, like it’s turning round and round. It almost sounds like an incantation.

    Chant, eyes closed, facing into a circle, four times, once for each point on the compass, then step into the center and the gate opens around you.
