Ancient Stones, Ritual Space & the Curve of the Land
When we feel disconnected from the land, we feel unhappy - even if we don’t consciously realize it. When we hear about the toll our presence is taking on the earth - the pollution of its air, soil and waters, the extinction of species - we cannot bear it. So we often do one of several things: deny it, cover our ears, protest and/or try to live more sustainably by recycling, reducing our carbon footprint and buying local or organic produce. But even if we make these attempts, we wonder if they aren’t all too little, too late.....
my series of 50 sonnets
'Between Two Worlds' from Chrysalis Poetry.
Each one of these booklets is handmade, and uses a layer
of vellum to symbolize the 'mists' between the worlds, or the veil Perceval must pierce to complete the quest.
See books/CDs for details.
Here's one of the sonnets:
The Dragon Powers
they saw him in the wave beats of the sea
the rippling skins of streams and rivers,
in cloud flows and massing storms that shivered
high across the ink brushed mountain passes
in the falling scales of snowflakes, glitter
of rain, in knobbly trees and knotted stone
everywhere his light and heavy slither
rolled and vaporized in and out of form
and now he’s there in new ways, flickering
through neon signs and pixelated screens,
the flash from all four corners, red, blue, green
and yellow, of index figures rising
now the turning faces of the gathered
crowds take on themselves the dragon powers.
