A Journey of Self-Expression

   
  †
{The Snake} †  
† †
The snake must learn to † †
telescope the core self, †  
otherwise, heavy hands † †
would fashion its destiny. †  
† †
Shimmering scales slink †  
through the molten landscape, † †
burnt by every fiery † †
fathom of discourse. † †
† †
Yet, despite this ravage † †
of hot tongues fanning † †
the flame, there † †
is still a tiny, white light,
burning heat of its own. † †
† †
Dawn creeps †  
over the horizon and †  
from the chaos, healing †  
is born. †  
† †
† †
† †
{The Rabbit} † †  
† †
The rabbit bathes in † †
sunlight, an † †
umbrella of joy and †  
perfect consonance. †  
† †
A tide of rebirth has †  
swept across the pock-marked † †
heart, soothing the † †
char of vacuous language. †  
† †
Here is where † †
transformation takes place; †  
a resurrection of soul, † †
dancing in the light. †  
† †
Rhythm is formed by † †
easy hands molding † †  
clay, creating pockets of †  
wisdom and beauty. †  
† †
† †
† †
{The Owl} †  
† †
The owl has achieved †  
clarity of purpose, a † †
softened heart and keen † †
eyes to see truth. † †
† †
Walking stick always at the †  
ready, the journey is near † †
complete; heart mended † †
and wrongs forgiven. † †
† †
Setting out on a path †  
of love and good intentions, † †
there is no room for regret †  
or the worry of death. † †
† †
Wisdom is a sacred † †
rite, honed by those who †  
seek, with conviction, † †
experiential knowledge.
