Eye of Horus (The Visible and Invisible are Dependent on the Light)

horus a

One eye the moon
eye of time
one eye the sun
winged eye

Eye of time
marking the minutes
winged eye
still above the sky

Marking the minutes
fierce ascending
still above the sky
soundless and waiting

Fierce ascending
 flaming through clouds
soundless and waiting
unexpected

Flaming through clouds
one eye the sun
unexpected
one eye the moon

I’ve been missing Draw-a-Bird Day, but this month I wanted to make sure I participated.  Still in mandala mode, I decided to do Horus, the Egyptian falcon sky god.  I like the fact that one of his eyes represents the sun, and one the moon. You may be familiar with the Eye of Horus amulet, which offers protection and insight.

The falcon is a universal symbol of visionary power and focus.

Once again, a pantoum.

    I really love this, Kerfe–words and art. I didn’t know that about Horus, that one eye represented the sun and one the moon.

    What wonderful contrasts—the symmetrical, stylised art for the god, and those beautiful free line drawings of the real bird! The poem is the icing on the cake!
    I must say that Horus looks as though he’s eating a Big Mac 🙂 That’s the joy of random blots/clouds—we see all sorts or weird things in them.

    I will move forward today with the power and focus of the falcon. ( I’m with my 7 year old grand daughter, today, to keep up with.) Did you paint one side then fold the paper to get the replicated paint on the other side to finish? I love your art and stirring words today.

    Your pantoum is infused with energy, like wings beating.

    I loved playing unofficial draw a bird day each month and how Laura would make a list. Glad to see your bird drawing! I haven’t uploaded mine on the blog yet but will do so with my weekly recap. Have a great day!

    Wow! Really powerful poetry — fierce poetry! — and beautiful pictures. The birds flying especially are so incredibly lovely.

      Thanks Althea…I admire your ability to snatch drawing time in all times and places. I hope to get back to doing more of it myself.
      These days I find it easier to jot down words than images.
