On November 18 I published Journey that begins “Beyond the cave.” Today I thought I’d give you a glimpse into the cave!

The Cave

The hollow in the earth
Where it all begins.
The journey to the center,
The space of origins.

The skull, the hollow ring
Of laughter lighting the
Empty eyes with the flame
Of the echoed fire.

The journey, cycles within cycles:
Fodder to food to energy;
Far flight, running, hunting, swimming
Shape-shifting through the chain.

The conference, the High Self
Acting as Guru – Guide for
The long return to source,
Cycling back to the beginning:

The skull, my Guru
Always laughing at life,
Echoing the mirth I feel
At my own stumbling progress.

PS: The New Moon in Sagittarius is tonight, Monday December 2 at 7:22 pm Eastern. I’ll be casting an I Ching Gua to read the energies for the coming month. Stay tuned!
