The Siren

Image: The Fantasy Art of Molly Harrison. ‘Astra’ The celestial Mermaid.
The world has gone quite mad, 
If you could put me back in the water, that would be good.  

The Siren 
She says so little, 
but exudes so much.
mysterious in ethereal flush. 

What secrets will she share?
watcher of moon, shining there.
Mythical, graceful and divine,
Siren of seas in ancient times. 

The night, sees her light,
in sanctity, of inner sight.
She’s coming and going.
in conscious. All knowing.

Balancing heart in mind,
in dreams, she finds.
Visions come and go, 
in memories; You know. 

Under water, she floats,
on rising, she takes notes.
Traveling in her own time, 
to seek, peace of mind.

In the glow of full moon,
sing her celestial tune. 
As you wave her goodbye,
silently, close your eyes.

With a flick of her tail,
a moment to exhale. 
Release and let’s go,
into depths of great, below.

The greatest Parable in history 

Okay. Here's the plan

DEEP 
‘There once was a God’ it is said,
who carried the world on his head. 
He had lived in a golden mansion, 
in an idyllic, utopian advancement.

Ruling a progressive civilisation,
fascinating, universal imagination.
We’ve searched the seven seas,
with diggers in global archaeology. 

Over exaggerated inspiration?
has Plato’ fable been mistaken?  
The greatest philosopher of time,
his parables have become divined. 

On the Island of Atlas, in 360BC, 
was there a flooding catastrophe? 
Idealism. Myth. Valid or Fact?
to that place, we can return back.

There is always an element of truth,
invariably fairy tales, hold no proof.
Atlas is in our collection of maps,
joining dot to dash, trace it back.  
 
I am loathe to tell you this, 
but I don’t imagine Atlantis did exist.
This is Plato’ pseudo-historical twist.

‘But nobody got hurt.

Well maybe somebody got hurt.

But nobody we knew’ ~ The Lost Empire

The lost city of Atlantis 

Ancient Greek: “island of Atlas“) is a fictional island in Plato‘s works.

Plato

whose dialogues on Truth, Good and Beauty have significantly shaped western thought and religion, wrote and taught under a nickname. His real name was Aristocles 

In creating Atlantis, it seems Plato was writing a moralistic fable showing the consequences of corruption and arrogance.

https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/the-lost-city-of-atlantis.html

‘But afterwards there occurred violent earthquake and floods

and in a single day and night of misfortune, all ‘warlike’ men sank into the earth. and the islands of Atlantis disappeared into the depths of the sea. ~ Plato

Echo Sounds

Image: Anne Stokes ~ The Water Elemental Wizard who is a Merman

*Insert water music*

ECHO SOUNDS
Hear and there, 
in ebb and flow of ocean waves,
whisper connections; contemplate.
Cosmic convergence, musical stares, 
sonar resonates, as motion shares. 

Murmurs channel, in turbulent flow, 
whirlpools form, of depths in zone.
God of Mermen, breath of the seas,
commands tide, wherever he please. 

Trident, Wizard wand, or sea spear,
brace for a storm, whenever you hear. 
A touch of Atlantis, a crystal torch light,
perpetual momentum in circling sight. 

King of Earth, Air, Ocean and Fire,
‘Poseidon; tell us, what you desire’
'Primal culture of Atlantean texts, 
repeating history, we would regret. 

‘None are just, black, yellow or white, 
none are ever wrong, or always right.
A multi-verse of wisdom inside and out;
like musical chairs, never shout about. 

We each have a place in tides of change,
let kindness and sharing play in the game'   
Victoria Healing ~ 8.4.2022
ECHO SOUNDS 

Musical Chairs

Set chairs in a circle, one fewer than the number of people in the game and then play music as they all walk around the circle. Every time the music stops, all must try to sit on a chair. This game teaches how to resolve arguments peacefully, deal with disappointment and practice patience. Settle conflicts peacefully by using your words to work out arguments about whose chair is whose or who got there “first.”

Today we have the Water Elemental Wizard who is a merman, the male equivalent of a mermaid. Here he uses his magic to channel the power of water and create a vortex in the sea.

Sonar

Detecting and determining the distance and direction of underwater objects by acoustic means.

The first recorded use of the technique was by Leonardo da Vinci in 1490

Come Out, Come Out

'He is there in the depths of shadows,
but when you need him, he protects what’s his' 
 
Come Out, Come Out 
It was news to me,
that tiny Dragons swim under the sea.
Winding their wings in waving homes,
in marines secret lairs of leafy domes. 

A destination, floating watery paths,
preordained and hovering in tracks.
Ancient of times in your hidden wish, 
deep down, you know they do exist. 

As veils of separation have been rent,
by outmoded thoughts of discontent. 
Light your torch, to see through night,
a sacred pact, of Sea-Dragons sight.  

Finding her Sea-Dragon she’d sighed, 
‘Darkness had camouflaged the light’ 
Reaching out there, to grasp her hand,
He whispered ‘Now you understand’

You are ’it’
You have been tagged. 
Victoria Healing ~ 6.4.2022 
Come Out, Come Out 
Wherever You Are. 

It’s All in the Game of Hide and Seek.

The seeker should always look for other players.

Don’t hide in the most obvious places.

If you really want to make an effort in bigger places with a large hiding area, try changing your clothes! They may find it harder to spot you.

The goal is for the hiders to take advantage of camouflage of the shadows.  The game is meant to be stealth. When a hider is caught—tagged by a seeker—the hider does not get to hide again and must remain on home base.

Ready or not?

 

‘Dragon brave and dragon wise,

let nothing escape your eyes.

I summon you from your hidden lair,

All are entrusted to your care’ ~ Unknown

“New Horizons”.

The Dragon leads the lady along the path and holds her hand in reassurance. The dragon looks back over his shoulder, as she leaves the past behind and they move on to the new horizons of the future.

 

The Sea-Dragon’s name is derived from its resemblance to the mythical Dragon.

It is able to maintain the illusion when swimming, appearing to move through the water like a piece of floating seaweed. It can also change colour to blend in, but this ability depends on the Sea-dragon’s diet, age, location, and stress level.

Oh, But I Am Back…!

Image: Steampunk Chug. Caption: ~ Shauna Niequist
Oh, But I Am Back...! 
Sometimes, she’d question her sanity,
in a cold man-made world of un-reality. 
‘She’ her-self ages ago, ceased to exist; 
here, now, she’s found the voids twist. 

Love or loathe her, she doesn’t care,
she has her original in sights to share. 
Staying true to her heart, is the gold,
in surrender to cosmic vision of soul.

Creating her own portal of reserve, 
tracing the ink in her veins words. 
Finding more untapped powers,
beasts hidden have been devoured. 

Monstrous doubts have been slayed,
as this Warrior Dragon paves the way. 
True north, in her journey, she’s begun,
sparkling waves of radiance from the sun. 

With a book and a magical quill on side, 
more fantastical adventures she writes. 
And on this day, she rests and has said,
‘Finally those old nightmares are dead’. 

Weary of battles and being attacked, 
she shouted ‘Oh, but now I am back’ 
With Dragon friends waving on side, 
they told her ‘Now it is time to Ride’  

Steering ships wheel. Standing at ease.
avast, dark clouds and stormy seas.

It’s Puzzling

Image: Pin Interest
Them: What are you doing under the table?
Me: Looking for my missing piece    

IT’S PUZZLING 
Is it in your socks or maybe in your bra?
that missing bit, couldn’t have gone far.
Is it stuck on your elbow or glued underarm?
that vital piece of your own unique charm. 

Is it under the table, or fallen in your shoe?
that mislaid tile, the challenged part of you. 
Each shape should fit in and slide together, 
hand crafted, flipped, wriggled and tethered. 

If its fallen apart and broken into bits,
find the lost piece where the section fits. 
It will take dexterity, patience and skill,
looking at the big picture, if you will. 

Don’t lose yourself, to fit odd shapes in, 
take notes of your inside chatter within. 
Try a little introspection and clarity,
to take you into the next level of reality.

It’s in a place, you’ve looked, so far;
in your entire being, a mindset, a bar. 
In all that you’ve experienced and seen, 
there is a mosaic ‘Jigsaw Puzzle’ of dreams.

A dissected map, to assemble by you,
when you find it, you’ll know what to do.

Mirror, Mirror

Image: The Black Prince by J_ Patrick
MIRROR, MIRROR
Her heart is shackled in white robes,
behind her iced wall she roams.
Sculptured into fractal  state,
your crystalline, iceberg mate.

Ask her, ‘Why she hides?’
a dam of emotions numbed inside.
Frozen beyond glacial walls,
hear her screams and calls. 

Show a little loving and care,
grasp her spirit magnetic, there.
When those icicles melt.
her warmest feelings will be felt.

Don’t try to rush,
have a little hush.
When you see her,
she sees you,
to tell you what to do.

Brain frozen, since a child, 
only seeing with her eyes.
Chilled in chasmic chaos of inner self,
she knew there was some soul else.

Deep and frost-bound inner soul,
melting and thawing, becoming whole. 
She is a heroine and cool kinda chick,
if you understand your defrost switch.  

There is magic in the diamonds of rough, 
now you’ve chilled into a warrior, tough.

The Ice Witch saves treasures from frozen times, utilising frost energy under the light of the moon. She practices weather magic with a focus on the transformative nature of freezing temperatures. By using modern amenities such as freezers and ice boxes, an Ice Witch can save treasures from the frozen months, for use throughout the year. Contemplative and strong, she can see through the chaos of life. Just as light catapults through layers of ice, this Witch transforms energy into a tapestry of colour and intention. ~ Water Of Whimsy ~ Image: Regan Rolston 2021

Dancing Heart

Dance Heart
It’s that jitterbug, 
that raps in your brain.
Twirling frequently, 
it won’t be tamed.

It’s like your mind, 
is hip hopping with you. 
Sometimes I worry, 
it's all just boogaloo.

Strange conversations, 
rock and roll in your head.
It jiggles you to things, 
that boogie to be said.

Maybe I should pointe down, 
from this listening in. 
But I do so enjoy,
the chirography of writing it brings.

Painting Words

PAINTING WORDS 
Unkempt children with dirty feet, 
weary peasants, plodding streets. 
Weathered hands and pallid faces,
living on faith, in dowdiest of places.

Concern flickered in his attentive eyes, 
wishing to paint ‘lives’ in their true light.
An inspired, sensitive and visionary man, 
the power of his heart, held in his hands. 

Words of colour, stroked from his brush,
immersed in nature, an emotional must.
A palette betwixt the colourful and dark,
an ingenious master in the tender of art.

Illuminate paints, in quest to understand,
infinity of life in Gods magnificent lands.
Casting artful eyes over natures scenery,
sensing the harmony, of universe clearly. 

Breathing the frequency of existence into air,
time was stilled, portrayed in magical flares.  
Forward thinking and a way ahead of time,
colouring enthusiasm between his lines.

Painting coloured words, to what he saw, 
influenced by Charles Dickens, gift to poor. 
The passion of his starry eyed expression,
were epileptic traits of spiritual impressions.

Laden with creations, meaningful treasures,
awe inspiring legacies, akin to your pleasures.
Victoria Healing ~ 5.1.2.2021

FOREWORDS

Vincent van Gogh absolutely loved Charles Dickens

Vincent wanted to “Paint what Dickens had done with his words”

Van Gogh was an avid reader and admirer of Charles Dickens. He remained devoted to the Victorian author throughout his life.

In a letter to his brother Theo, Vincent wrote of his ‘Irresistible passion for books’ and that the study of literature was as essential to him as his daily bread. Van Gogh created albums for his family and friends, containing poems and prose he selected himself.

Vincent collected images of everything that appealed to him, pretty much like his own Pinterest.

Similarities in the personality traits of famous people who have epilepsy.

Would it be a ‘coincidence’ that both Vincent van Gogh and Charles Dickens both had epilepsy and were obsessive artists and writers? They each had the typical clingy emotional personality and were fascinated with spirituality and religion

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geschwind_syndrome#Hypergraphia

 

Robert Efron commented on epilepsy in the Neurological Journal ~

‘The most intuitive people are diagnosed by the least’
