The Source of Being

I was thinking of the soul
 that mysterious un-proven source of being.
Thoughts came to me of a mystical place where
 in the mossy ground of a sacred forest
a portal existed 
below the quadrivail of four ancient rivers.
a cave deeply etched by a many ages-
the pericopic carving of rushing waters
into a clear, deep pool of a most unbelievable blue .

Precious, orange zircons formed the floor…ligures for holy men’s robes
 a resevoir of more than nature's beauty
 an enigma, a place of secret rites and truths
 knowable, only by divine revelations.

And when the vision faded peace flowed through my thoughts-
a  truth from ages past and a faith that was positive
in time and space.

    Being contains a reservoir of poetic material, and each should advance our insights. This one certainly does. Not sure about the legitimacy of "quadrivail" as a word, although it is obvious what you are saying.

    suz, this poem reminded me of the kind of stuff that Jan turner is so into. It is very metaphysical. Is that the word I am seeking? and made me think of reincarnation, etc. what is Shadow's word challenge? (oh and thanks for telling me I had a typo_)
