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.

Only in my chaos, did I learn to be still

Only in my fear, did I find my might,

Only in my darkness, did I see my light

The Twist

Dragons, I’ll give ‘em Dragons

THE TWIST 
Somewhere below, 
an outcast figure, I know.
In unhurried pace,
of sensual grace.  

Come lonely Dragon, 
dance with me.
Let’s twirl, under seas.

The time is right, 
swim, to waking light.
Surface, oceans of blue,
all will see that you are true.

Beneath the pink coral caves,
I see your kaleidoscope displays. 
Pirouetting on your one foot, 
‘In mesmerising, you are good’ 

Come Blue Dragon, spin a twist.
I have seen, that you do exist. 
Naked little alien of the seas, 
arise from seafloor, if you please.

If you get beached on shore,
you won’t be lonely any more. 

Mystical and avant garde;
*Nudibranch Dragon, 
you are a dancing star.

Well, you'll see... 


‘From above, the blue dragon blends into the colour of the ocean, but to anything below the surface they blend into the colour of the sky’ 

Blue Dragon *Nudibranch*

The word “nudibranch” comes from the Latin nudus “naked”

and the Ancient Greek βράγχια (bránkhia) “gills“. 

The first impression of a nudibranch might make you think it’s the love child of the 1970’s psychedelic era and aliens from the future.

Today is urgent

Water ripples 


BOOM
*sniffles*
it used to be, 
I liked swimming under the sea.
Noting the whistling of Mom’s calls, 
now, I can’t hear her clicking at all. 

She had a boinging sort of sound, 
her serenading trills, pulsed around. 
I’d known when it was time to eat, 
or to head home and go to sleep. 

Its awfully noisy down here now,
under the boats and the crowds.
The seismic explorers are scoffing,
to find oil, they’re sending shots in.
  
Some humans, are more thoughtful,
Stop! they say ‘Oil drilling is awful’. 
And the depth sounders moved in,
with a cacophony of tectonic din. 

Alarm bells are ringing under seas,
sirens boom ‘Can you help us please?’
‘Here I am, quivering on a lonely shore, 
I can’t hear my Mom’s songs anymore’…

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.

Heart melts, when Prince George met Bilby at Taronga Zoo.

Reading:

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.

“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.

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.

OTTER ~ Dobhran

Joy. Play. Helpfulness.

Time out! Otter invites us to go with the flow of life. Relax. Let go of daily concerns.

 

TRADITION OF THE OTTER

The Otter is known for its strong sense of family ties. Otherwise known as sea dog, who is sacred to the Goddess Ceridwen and to the Irish God of the sea Mannanan mac Lir. If captured, they will grant any wish.

 

Although, I have never met an Otter in real life…

Albatross ~ Prince of Waves.

Teaches us grace, coming into our lives to show us how to use our bodies in ways that help us move fluidly through any conditions that can seem even treacherous to our wellbeing.

The Albatross is a master at wandering. Teaching us the value of simply finding new roads and pathways; in order to find the road less travelled, if it looks like it might yield more nourishment. ~ Animal/Insect/Plant Totems & Medicine

 

STATUS UPDATE !!ENDANGERED!!
