It is when spirit has released its
circle into a sea of impetus-

the will of force, to start and end
a journey past, and then begin again.

Traditional spells aside,
with much to abort and to abide,

to assuage the widow moon's bridge-keeper
with bribes of all that you promise her.

Lest you wade the murky depths in the
guise of an albino salamander,

avoiding consumption while traversing
the maze of surface fires

that block the way, and flotillas of
man-o-war jellyfish

their tentacles rife with voltage
to your slithering canopy.

And from the mantle of your blindness
you sense amidst the current

a jagged danger on the far side
where brittle struts from bone of baleen

threaten to sabotage the integrity
of your shape-shifting escape.

Little-known the consequences.
No book of shadows to guide us,

nor the written divination of runes, or
reed scriptures from the after world.

The encryption simply reads that
there is nothing more, once it is begun.
Imagery from the dualities of my spiritual and pagan roots is the simplest way to explain what I've just written.

I see emergence. Is there some Deism in those roots of yours?

My apologies for not having gotten to a reply to your thoughtful, insightful comment/quiry!

I think you've made a fantastic observation when you bring up Deism. It is the closest idea to this poem's meanings just short of the nail's head of my pagan beliefs - I say well done, and thank you.

Love these images. Don't know where they're taking me, but by the end I know I'm glad to be there.
