* "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.

Mother's Breath
« on: July 11, 2011, 04:06:18 pm »
Inhale Wisdom.
Exhale Freedom

Unseen,
I surround you always.
I am there for every babe's first cry

Hidden in each peal of laughter
or wailing lament,
and every life's last sigh

I stir
in any song ever sung
I whisper
through the flight of birds
I rage
through storms far flung
I am
the very thought
and action of your words
I whistle
through every season
I cut
through miscommunication
with reason
I rest
in countless rusted wrecks
I blow
inspiration gently your way
I breeze
around the world with varying affect
I dance
within the ocean's salty spray

I

feed fire

split stone

bind water

The sky is my only limit!

Inhale Spirituality
Exhale Change





Each singing poem is inspired by a Teacher found in Nature. I'm feeling rather uncertain about this new one as it is so very different. Can you guess who is singing? All feedback welcome![/SIZE][/FONT]

Air.  I thought 'wind' at first, but decided I needed to be less specific.

I smile when I\'m angry.  I cheat and I lie
I do what I have to do to get by
But I know what is wrong, and I know what is right
And I die for the truth in my secret life

I love the idea of doing these for the elements as well as for animals, plants, etc.

Exactly so! I thought about focusing on the Winds, but felt that needed to be a seperate piece, more focused. Air is the elemental Teacher singing here :o)

So glad you are enjoying these new and/or revised pieces! I love stretching my mind out to capture the song of a new and unusual Teacher. Animals are usually the first thing people think of in this way, then Plants... but there are so many more out there! Stones, stars, elements... there are Teachers everywhere we look :o)
