pallas athena, bold and sure

goddess of wisdom, forthright and pure

ascended master, shrewd authority

teacher of truth as the priority

a mighty warrior and graceful queen

cognizes both seen and unseen

ablaze with orange, purple, gold

she represents the Vast Untold

sees far and wide

stays by my side

her skills in me ingraining

i thank you archetype for ardent training

MIRRORS

Originally posted on Julia Yusupova:

Mirrors

a mirror is someone who reflects

the light and dark of others

we’re all such mirrors to an extent

some more-so with each other

there is a trend nowadays to say

s(he)’s mad ‘cuz i’m a mirror!

that may be true, but the other too

if mad, will be the seer

the goal is to delve into the glare

why am i angry here, off-balance there?

that’s work! some think, why should i care?

that’s fine, stay tarnished, all is fair

on the other hand, if you decide

to justly learn your lesson

don’t blame yourself for every fault

you see upon inspection

they really do exist in all

not always just reflections

the task is first to understand

two egos’ dark connection

and then break and revamp this link

through love’s divine correction

KUNDALINI

now i have come to own the privilege

of calling this experience my own

my soul, the matchmaker

had booked arrangements

for the bodily abode

where star-crossed lovers

intertwined and bound

as strands inside a genome

(I)

at culmination, he

the knight in shining armor

lowered first

sending along the bills

for pesky condo fees:

anxiety and mental disarray

to which the moody me

sharply reacted

“just wait and see,” was told

“but she’ll come next!” responded

living in memories

of the orgasmic first encounter

a partial rising of the past

“don’t dwell in expectation

nor if she comes indulge her”

what was said

“simply observe”

as difficult as it then seemed

the wise advice was heeded

by my dread-struck mind

which tried its hardest

to stay grounded

subsequently all through

the vividly apparent rise

of the meandering seductress

(II)

my heart felt like it would then quit

pink, heated…

MYSTICS

the mystics of the world were not religious

they spurned convention, laws, and rules aesthetic

jesus challenged the forms of so-called godly men

buddha surpassed materialists and ascetics

it’s funny though that what they did became

precisely that which they were hinting at avoiding

that’s how it goes in any field or theme

not just religion, but in any kind of setting

true meaning and definitions are separated

by a crafty outward-facing mechanism

it’s not religion’s fault per say

rather the deeper reason that affects us all the ego

so when it’s time, whenever that arrives for each

to catch onto this fact that’s slightly cryptic

the ones who look inside will reach

the power of the mystics
