The Door Opens

the door opens s

‘We who still labour by the cromlech on the shore,
The grey cairn on the hill, when day sinks drowned in dew,
Being weary of the world’s empires, bow down to you,
Master of the still stars and of the flaming door.’
—W.B. Yeats 
‘The Valley of the Black Pig’

the door opens magnetic

Once again I’ve consulted the Magnetic Oracle about one of Jane Dougherty’s Yeats quotes–this one from Day Nineteen.  The Oracle zoned right in on the stars and the flaming door.  Of course that’s always compatible with my artistic pursuits as well…

the door opens close up s

In the shadorma form for Shadorma November.

Stars breathe frost
ancient as soul stones–
deep cold fire,
sacred, dark–
roots that wander wild, leaving
paths seeded with light

    Gives me goose flesh! The Oracle is definitely in tune with the out there element in Yeats.

    Beautiful depth in the art, and your shadorma fits both that and the Yeats perfectly.
