To Transmogrify

The human eye sees 
beyond the perceived image
Sees forms in clouds
geometry in wheatfields
Can focus on a spider
blending into tree bark
Sees the living art of self- transmogrified 
stick and leaf creatures
Man weaves reality and fantasy
A horse with ornate antlers becomes
a deer's fleet spirit bounding within 
the form of a beast of burden
Something ordinary tweaked
to bring suprise or curiosity 
or fear and awe -
[as the mighty Viking's horned helmet]
or dog-headed man, or a centaur
Enough to draw unexpected power
from Nature
Shadow and light are more than a divine balance
When dark forces blossom- beyond experience
the unspoken occurs- the unfolding of evil
from seeming innocence.

    Suzanne your wisdom is rich in the way of alchemy which was never about turning base metals into gold; but turning ones self into an enlightened human being. I've come back to the wonderful family that is poerty soup.And in the past I never blocked you ! I don't know how that happened.I'll try to figure that out. Read you latter od friend.
