Wake up with a Unicorn

  
WAKE UP WITH A UNICORN 

’You don’t know anything about me’ Zoonie sighed,
her jaw tightly clenched, settling down for the night.
’Well whose fault is that’? Cornelius retorted’
all of my friendly attempts, you have thwarted’ 

‘I’m an enchanted Horse with a sword on my head,
a protector of magic, happiness and dreams ahead.
If you have a Unicorn to be your best friend,
you are extra special and on me you can depend’ 
 
Zoonie glanced over,  twinkling hopes, on her face,
‘Okay then, let’s begin with a furry hug of embrace’
Cornelius whispered back in welcoming response
‘Let go of your grief Zoonie, it’s time to move on’

Cornelius advised that there be just one rule:
‘Remember stars sparkle, between me and you.
Two precious hearts in a a mystical union,
now begins the alchemy of happiness infusion. 

It will be sweet to see Zoonie laughing again, 
this is a true story, I wish to have a happy end.

Has a Unicorn ever crossed your path? 

The mythical unicorn has long been a source of enchantment. Solitary, swift and graceful, the unicorn had a single spiralling horn growing from its forehead. Sought by many, the unicorn’s horn was said to have medicinal and magical properties. 

It is said that Unicorn energy heals what ails you

Bilbies Not Bunnies

BILBIES NOT BUNNIES 
Pushing through the shop’s glass door,
there stood a Bilby, I’d not seen before.
The charismatic Bilby is a rare sight,
endangered species, in survival plight.

So, to Bilby yes? or to Bilby no?
these Easter treats, are good to go.
Your mission, should you accept,
to buy a ‘Bilby’ chocolate Easter egg.

Bilby versus Bunny, what’s the harm?
Bilbie’s have big ears too and lots of charm.
The same sweet look, touch, taste and smell,
warm, earthy flavours, we know so well.

Us Aussies aren’t big mates of rabbits,
an invasive species with killing habits. 
Our land down under has this new trend,
funds raised in candy for Bilbies defence.

This being, a statement of Australian pride,
Bilby easter eggs support marsupial life.
Bilbies are so much better than bunnies, 
guilt free treats, make conservation money.

Oii, Oii, Oii

The greater Bilby is also known as the rabbit-eared bandicoot, once occupied over 80 percent of Australia, but due to decades and decades of decline, they’ve become nearly extinct and only a handful of them exist in remote regions of Australia. Australian conservation groups are encouraging public awareness of the greater Bilby by promoting the Easter Bilby as an alternative to the Easter bunny.

 At a distance of 444.2 light years;
 closest constellation cluster to earth.
 In eye of Taurus of great central sun,

 Sacred solar heavenly wheels turn,
 new octaves of experience, learned.
 Starry infusions of greater reality,
 attaining of freedom and mastery.

 Merging magnetic veils at last,

 Hey diddle, diddle, Taranis of skies,

 God of thunder, powers of lightening,

 Benevolent ‘Sky Wheel God’ of virility,

We are dancing for the moon.

Pleiades:

500 light years from planet Earth is a small cluster of seven stars located in the” Constellation of Taurus of the Bull” known as Pleiades. The cluster is actually the eye of the bull in the constellation of Taurus.

The distance to the Pleiades can be used as a key first step to calibrate the cosmic distance ladder. As the cluster is relatively close to the Earth,

The name “seven sisters” has been used for the Pleiades in the languages of many cultures, including indigenous groups of AustraliaNorth America and Siberia. This suggests that the name may have a common ancient origin.[40]

Taranis: 

Forming the profile of a Bull’s face is a V or K-shaped asterism of stars. 

In Celtic mythology Taranis was the mighty god of thunder. In Welsh and Breton the word for thunder is taran.

Out of the Blue

Stepping out of our caravan door,
we saw an odd ‘thing' we’d not seen before.
In the middle of nowhere, out of the blue,
was a strange and peculiar, angle of view. 

Our world had turned upside down,
the sea was on top, I thought ‘I’ve drowned’
Our dogs were barking and making a fuss,
the Alien in the sky, had all been too much. 

Wobbly body, eight arms and bulbous eyes,
it was a giant flying Octopus, to our surprise.  
Multi faceted, intelligent and highly capable,
most see an Octopus as a tasty food staple.

I’ll be giving this seafood meal a miss,
I refuse to see it grilled, with garlic on my dish.
Resourceful, magical, mysterious and clever, 
the oddities we see on our travel endeavours.  

Billions of years, being impossible to find,
now here is one, hanging onto a string line. 
Victoria Healing ~ 5.10.2020
Out of the Blue 
Did you know?
An Octopus doesn't only see... it can recognise your face and even get to know you. We have so much to learn about these magnificently ancient creatures.

If you want to feel inspired by the power of nature, watch the movie “My Octopus Teacher” 

Check Your Rear

CHECK YOUR REAR


In the barren wilderness of the remote Ozzie bush, 
the ablutions are basic, don’t expect classy or ‘lush’
A car ride, is required, a kilometre or so,
you must drive quickly, if you ‘really, really’ want to go.


Self sufficient in your camp site, you must be,
especially if you frequently need to pee. 
Tin shed Potties, are the essential trend, 
never luxurious, or swish, can you comprehend?


Search for spiders under the toilet seat, 
they’re the critters you never want to meet.
Inspect the privy, before sitting on your throne,
the local frogs may be swimming at home.


Our mate, Mr Brian had gone for a ‘relief’ meeting, 
his regular ritual, primal and basic seating.  
As he sat on the Dunny, he’d heard a flapping,
scaring him, that some ‘thing’ may come attacking, 


Investigating the water tank to check the foray, 
he found a baby Falcon, drowning, thrashing away.
Submerged and sinking, the small fledging, was in panic,
Brian knew, that he must dive in quickly, to grab it. 


As the Hawk was pulled safely back to dry land, 
his healing and recovery was hopefully, at hand.
We thought that young Falcon’s end was nigh,
but then we heard him screech, croak and cry.


Rescued, resuscitated, refreshed and revived,
our Mr Brian had thankfully saved this bird’s life. 
His urgent rescue mission was a total success,
that little Falcon flew elsewhere, to find happiness.  


At the end of this story, it is obvious and clear,
just like Brian, when in the Lav, you must check your rear.

Check Your Rear  
Young Falcon, In the dog cage, resting and drying out. 
There is no water available at Quobba Point, Western Australia. It is a free camp, 80 kms out of town. Travellers have to have their own water supply. Some inconsiderate idiot had taken the top off the water tanks by the toilets to steal water, which is not drinkable anyway. They didn’t bother putting the top back on, so this young Falcon got in, but couldn’t get out.

‘That’ Tail

Far away in Australia’s remote bush,
we parked up our caravan to savour the hush.
80kms out of town, surrounded by scrub,
amongst lots of creatures who lived in that hub.


A plethora of food is available in their surrounds,
they were all very quiet, not making any sounds.
Horrifically one night, as I lifted up our van bed,
I saw some 'thing' moving, or was it in my head?


Screaming out to hubby in distress and surprise,
I called him to “come quickly” to “Look what’s inside”
“No, nothing is there” he confidently said,
“Lets just get comfy and tucked up in bed”


In the morning, brown pellets, scattered all around,
calling cards from nature, that we had found.
Quickly running to lift up the camper bed,
terrified at the prospect of what lay ahead.


Screwdrivers, torches quickly were fetched,
even six year old Mr Grandson joined in our quest.
Hubby had said it must be my imagination,
a scream from Mr Grandson confirmed the true situation.


“Yes” he had spied a brown running ‘thing’
Pop eyes bulging, he shrieked “I can see him”
as apprentice of creature catcher, he swiftly leapt up,
looking to trap him, just under the wooden struts.


As the storage chamber was quickly revealed,
we saw to our surprise, the mystery as concealed.
Both chased that ‘tail’ quickly to find,
as Mr Grandson remained vigilant all of that time.


Skirting boards and cupboards went a flying,
I reminded them, “I didn’t want to see ‘it’ dying”
Hiding on the periphery, sniffing human scent,
the ‘beast’ ran into hiding in his own defence. 


Nothing or no-one that morning, could catch him,
‘it’ was a tiny brown field mouse who’d been scratching,
Visiting hubby’s chocolate stash, in the evening,
we couldn’t allow him to continue, his proceedings. 


Sadly to say, this tale has an unhappy ending,
a mouse trap was set up to prohibit his attending.  
Sneaking sweet treats, had caused his demise, 
Now we’ve confiscated all confectionary inside.

“Why here”? he said;
She replied “Look for Golden Eagles overhead”

Above dome of stars, pinhole twinkles of light,
a whoosh of air and sounds of whistling cries.
You can sense them there in the silence,
watching and waiting for the wind to ride again.

Knowing they are present is reassuring,
as the long ache of truth comes calling.
Way above 3560’ in their *Eryri heights,
wings span over 2 metres wide in flight.

Mountains peak against grey sky,
aware of mind and aware of eye.
Faster and faster, downwards they descend,
sights on prize, plunging; they comprehend.

Narrowing, retaining and keeping focus,
because their heart and mind’s eye control it.
Soaring swiftly, gliding and spiralling,
in their gracefulness, elegant, beguiling.

Shapeshifting Eagles who protect King Arthur,
here, now and in the mists of ever after.
High in the mountains of Snowdonia in Wales,
lies the secret entrance to his resting place.

“As in the star system of ‘The Great Bear”?

“Yes, that’s right”

Associated with primal power and insight,

one of the brightest stars in the night skies.

 

Ursa Major of the Northern Polaris connects you, 

with the deepest affinity of your ancestral roots.

Mythology is filled with ancient tales,

the process of exploration, as changes prevailed.

 

Devoid of electronic systems in bygone times,

Druids were guided by stars; as planets aligned.

Living life for them was very different,

they appreciated the natural world as significant.

 

Viewed in reality from another perspective,

using symbolism to meet  potential objectives.

Ancients tell of the guiding ‘Light of King Arthur’

“Art” as Bear Man, God Artorius and mighty Warrior.

 

Primal shamanism was used in ancient times,

as their only navigation, sphere and guide.

Shining his ‘Bear light’ in dark of Winter season;

united this star with influence of animal; for a reason.

Where Wolves?

WHERE WOLVES?

Wolves and dingoes are much the same,
the Celts revered them and bred them to fame.
In Wales, Blaiddudd is their Brythonic name.
representing ‘intuition’ as your inner wilding to tame.

Celts used their furs, on rugs they would sit,
their pelts renowned to protect; had you known this?
Despite today’s scary tales, of werewolves and such,
in ancient Druid times, Wolves were loved very much.

Modern stories tell, how wolves are bad,
todays distortions and myths, make me sad.
Positive traits and accolades that i find;
Boy scouts are named “Wolf Cubs” as sacred signs.

Again, in the ‘Jungle Book’ by Rudyard Kipling,
or Merlin’s friendship with a wolf, Ceridwen gifted him.
Wolf brings a strong sense, of loyalty,
inner strengths, courage and tutorial qualities.


Never fear your inner Wolf’s instincts and power,
his strength will support you, when feeling disempowered.
