* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Joyful Requiem
« on: July 22, 2020, 11:26:24 pm »
Members of the Order Coleoptera
30,000 strong in our family alone
Clean up crew
humble tumblebugs are we
Antennae alert for messages divine
Moving mountains with our unassuming strength
as we trundle about collecting scattered debris

Six rays to our crown
Four more at each fossorial arm
help us dig chambers,sculpt our spheres
Whether simply a meal or masterwork
patiently we roll along seemingly at leisure
Six legs busy scuttling
wings sheathed beneath our black armor
we take the crap others leave behind
making miracles from nothing
Your trash becomes our treasure

Earthly incarnations
of creative Khepri
All along Egypt's coast
skittering down our tunnels
hidden in our sepulchral lairs
we feast or brood

From simple charms
to Pharaoh's tomb
Protective symbol of
Resurrection and Life Immortal
Carved in symbolic green
placed reverently upon your chest
Persuading Ma'at
that your own heart
should not testify against you
We attest

Reach for the new life awaiting
within each metaphoric death
Stretch your senses beyond five
We will help you solve problems
Help you come into being
Guide you through each metamorphosis
to your most authentic self
Don't fight it
Surrender to change
the only constant in this life
Be resourceful
Reclaim as yours what serves you
Recycle the rest.



For those new to the game, each piece is inspired by a Teacher found in Nature; a star, stone, animal, plant etc that holds lessons and wisdom or us. Can you guess who is singing today?
Wishing you laughter

Well done! this fascinating Teacher is the Scarab or Dung Beetle. This Old World Teacher is a good one to turn to when we need to recycle something in our life that no longer serves us.
