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.
