Hallowed Halls

For those who have an interest in ancient Egyptian mysticism.

I dance with the eternal

To the song that never ends

Yet what the heart and soul both know

The mind can’t comprehend

Down the Halls of the Amenti

Far beneath the River Nile

In the land of the undead

I have walked the mystic mile

I learned there with the ancients

And the Keeper of the Flame

The wisened one named Thoth

And the ones who have no name

To thine shall be the glory

Ever flowering in the night

So long I lingered there

Always searching for the light

Then the emerald words revealed

All the truths I longed to see

Thus I freed my soul from bondage

And placed the power back in me

No karmic wheel can spin me

For I’m a sovereign soul

Autonomous and self-governing

As long since has been foretold

And so my dance continues

Realm to realm, star to star

Swirling to the rhythm

Of the music in my heart.

March Waltzes In

March Waltzes In
by Carolyn Glackin
February, cold and dreary
Leaves us longing
For the sun
All the snow and ice must go
Goodbye winter,
It’s been fun!
Ready now for golden rays
To brighten up
Our endless days
And raise our weary gardens
From their slumber
And right on time,
As if on cue
March comes waltzing in
With all it’s thunder
A bit of rain,
But I’ll not complain
For soon we’ll see the fruits
Of March’s labor
As flowers and trees
And birds and bees
Reconnect us with our yards
And with our neighbors
Such a wonderful thing
Is the warmth March brings
Not only to our world
But to our hearts
Reminding us
Without a doubt
Of all the love and beauty
Spring imparts.
