“SPIRITS ARE USING ME…”

REPOST UPON SEEING THE SOUTHERN CROSS AT MIDNIGHT 3-15-17


(scroll down for YouTube video)

 

Ancient museum piece

Finding its way

From saline, sunken galleon

To pristine, icy backdrop

Of the sky’s exhibit

Southern Cross

Crux!

Visible in the Northern Hemisphere

And all I can hear

Is Stephen Stills’ voice

Hitting those high notes

Thinking about how many times

I, too, have fallen

No thought of crucifixion

Redemption

Religion

Although a brief vision

Of the tarot’s Hanged Man

Sacrifice

Flashes through my exploding mind

Crux!

On April 8 at one in the morning

Florida, Hawaii and Texas

Are given the gift

From the Southern Hemisphere

Of their circumpolar Crux

Always above the horizon

The Earth poised just right

Stars gracing my life in the night

  1. A great read, and so good hear we have some gifts to give in the deep South 🙂 . As well as flags, Brazilian currency was once named after the Southern Cross–the Cruzeiro. I have some notes, they are now worth 0.000000001 cents or less 😀 .
