Following the Drinking Gourd

unknown artist














Oh what a beautiful sky,  crystal clear
half moon illuminating the heavens
Mars, Jupiter and Venus shine
seven stars offer the weary a drink
big dipper sparkles daring you to sip
quenching a never ending thirst

take thy cup drink in the magic
of night...

            sighing...

Where o' where is my dragon
let us fly beyond the milky way
awaiting  the  blue planet of

           Truemanticism

dancing  to the frequency of love
unfurling wings we sweep the sky
don't cry little star your light forever
burns in the heart of the dragon

       inhaling//exhaling...
      
in the breath of  mystic night
take me to my place of heart
where the sky river runs between
heaven and earth...

a warrior calls out in the darkness

           behold a dream!


author's note:  I was stargazing the
other night and these words came
to me. I am giving honor to the
vision.  It is a bit rough, but
I wanted it to be unpolished.

Thanks for reading...

  20. Hey Truedessa,

    Oh my Gourd
    I lean toward
    The echoes of your frequency
    It's plain to see
    You tune into love
    A welcoming glove

    No your prose are not rough
    I've said enough

    Over to you
    This be True.

  22. This is wonderful. I love the vividness of the description, and I love the word Truemanticism. I'm also pretty jealous that you live in an area where you can stargaze. With all of the city lights and pollution, let's just say we don't get much more than a blotchy black sky around here. :)
