* "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.

Seize the Sky
« on: July 06, 2020, 10:56:17 pm »
Vigilant
Suil-na-Greine
Eye of the Sun
Observing the big picture
for the smallest signs
singing Wisdom
grateful Prayers
before he dines

"In the Moment
Between Lightning and Thunder
Power echoes in each beat I keep
Visions unparalleled
Heights unguessed
Summoned by Zeus
Hidden by Apollo’s hem
Watching from on high
as along the ground you creep
I clutch
Mother’s ancient bones
Then
into the East Wind I leap!

In the moment Between
I carry
the whispered Wisdom
of Creator’s Will
Return your prayers
to Creator on the tips
of my sacred feathers

Inspire excellence
in thought and deed
Cleanse souls
Evoke Justice
Banish all ill

Courage
Honor
Clarity
Strength
Visions
I carry such gifts for the people
like Lighting in my fists
Thunder on my back!
Great Mystery
leaves subtle tracks,
but
with me as your guide
the spiral path will become straight
All is well within your grasp
so fear not Icarus’ fate!
Fly higher
Singed is better
than fallen
Life is made better
spent with a true mate
Sovereigns of all we survey

Wanbli, Aquila
Carpe Diem
Each moment is brief
full of limitless possibilities
Soar
Catch the wind, glide
Be there
Svaha
the moment between
Freedom arises
when empathy
to our duties is applied "


For those new to the game, each poem is inspired by a Teacher found in Nature; a star, stone, animal, plant etc that holds lessons of Wisdom for us. Can you guess who is singing today?





Wishing you laughter

I'm stuck.

I'd say this is clearly a

With the sunlit eye...

Definitely an eagle.

...eagle?

Congrats on naming this Teacher, the Eagle! I like to camp along the Juniata river. Among other critters, there are a lot of eagles in the area Bald and Golden. Canoeing along that quiet river, you can hear every beat of their wings as they fly over to check you out :)
