Spiral

spiral monoprint s

spiral magnetic

Like seeds breathing a path
through stone,
wind wanders between wild
and free.

Ask the air to grow rooted
and nights will no longer flower
with moon spirit.

Listen as secrets follow seasons–
dark cold light bright–
withering into deep green
beneath ancient rain.

I started with the word “free” and the Magnetic Oracle took it from there.  For dVerse Quadrille #40.

    You and the oracle outdid yourselves with this one. I love your opening: ”
    Like seeds breathing a path
through stone”

    Wow–the Oracle really gave you a good one–breathing seeds, rooted air, and “secrets following seasons” (I love that!). The image is perfect. It makes me think of the earth cradled and cradling.

    Yes the nights have been flowering with moon spirits a lot lately and that ancient rain is certainly withering to deep green in this part of the world. – such a profound oracle. 🙂
