Stir the Cauldron
« on: March 07, 2019, 10:56:33 am »
The witching hour strikes

Shadows swirl at the

Crossroads of your soul

The Moon's brightly slitted eye sees all

as we listen to this Teacher's bewitching call...



"Curious

Halfway in this world

Halfway out

Daggers sheathed

Tail twitching and hooked

In silence I stalk my prey

bringing home gifts of

Magic

Mystery

Divine messages

tiny details oft overlooked

All brought home

like so many strays



Nine times I return

Sometimes to play

Others to wander

Lastly to share my life with yours

Tiger striped kings

Calico queens

We chose you

Domesticated and subtly trained you

Humming with content

Invoking laughter with our whimsy

Keeping your domain vermin free

Our chosen chore

Curled in your lap

We will unwind your stress

Wipe away your fears

Ease heartache

Unravel knots from past lives

Teach you the ways of Dreamtime

To hunt your Shadowself with agility, with grace

How to travel, broomless,

through Astral doors



Beloved of Freya

Ambassador of Bast

Sleek and satisfied

Slumbering in the warm Sun

Dreaming of the days when I was

worshiped

adored

cosseted as divine.

Remember

We are One

You too are a piece of Divinity

Be worthy of our praise

Live clean

Pick delicately at the bones of wisdom

Fiercly independent

Meet life on your own terms

Be mirrored in our luminous gaze"









For those new to the game, each piece in my Singing Series focuses on a Teacher found in nature; a star, stone, animal or plant that holds lessons of Wisdom for us. Can you guess who is singing? I am sure you will guess this one

What does that make.... Two? Maybe three both correct and first in all these years?
