Literature
Hints of the Magic
These words serve as meager
vessels, striving to
momentarily convey
hints of the Magic, vast
glorious domains of
transformative meaning
far beyond boundaries
of mortal perception.
:iconAppliedPhilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher
:iconappliedphilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher 3 0
Literature
Rhythm Unbroken
Echoes of Rhythm
Unbroken pulse and
reverberate from far
beyond unseen borders.
Deep calls to deep, bidding
what was buried long
ago within me to
reclaim forgotten
destiny, to rise
again in harmony
with ancient purpose.
:iconAppliedPhilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher
:iconappliedphilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher 4 0
Literature
Dance of the Universe
I find myself yearning
for those peculiar
experiences that
modern language lacks words
to adequately
describe, when the Dance of
the Universe may be
glimpsed through shifting tides of
illusion and shadow.
Seeing with more than
eyes, echoing with
deep resonances yet
to be translated
into sounds, rhythms that
stir the marrow of
mystic and mage, that make
the ears of all true
prophets tingle.
Being transformed, having
consciousness ever
altered by visions
eagerly waiting
articulation, by
signs and wonders pregnant
with meaning.
:iconAppliedPhilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher
:iconappliedphilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher 7 4
Literature
Other Wind
The Other Wind whispers
through bare winter trees,
arousing prophecies
of green destiny
waiting to unfold.
The Other Wind echoes
distant memories,
evoking ancient
hunger, deep yearnings we
cannot yet name.
The Other Wind flows
over mountain and under
rainbow, carrying
conspiracies of color
to summon wild chaotic
visions, revealing
unseen dimensions,
awakening minds from
long, deep slumber.
:iconAppliedPhilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher
:iconappliedphilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher 3 3
Literature
Not Yet Fluent
Crying for help, sounding
repeated alarms, but
those who see and those
who hear are not yet
fluent to decipher
the subtle and indirect
language of my peculiar
despair, this unique,
inarticulate ache
that I cannot yet
myself understand or
begin to describe.
:iconAppliedPhilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher
:iconappliedphilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher 5 7
Literature
Promise and Prophecy
Her eyes silently
express meaning, rich
mixture of ideas
and feelings which no words
are yet ready to
carry.
Her gaze inspires songs
of sublime mysterious
beauty, resonating
with what dwells within
her sensitive yet
mighty heart.
Her smile embodies
promise and prophecy,
depths of love and vast
fields of vision that
summon new worlds into
being.
:iconAppliedPhilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher
:iconappliedphilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher 8 7
Literature
Days of Exile
My tribe has been far
scattered; these are days
of exile.
My people: dissidents,
citizens of an
undiscovered country,
peering through cracks in
existence to catch
a glimpse of larger
realities.
Forced into shadow,
compelled to hide in
plain sight, we gather
infrequently, seldom
permitted to experience
moments of authentic
communion.
Yet we persist, poke holes
in the facade, leaking
out bits of light and truth
to sustain the remnant,
souls who yet dare to
believe.
:iconAppliedPhilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher
:iconappliedphilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher 7 3
Literature
Wish
Unrequited Love:
How I wish I could
quit you.
:iconAppliedPhilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher
:iconappliedphilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher 10 1
Literature
No Other Path
My life would be
much more simple and
less complicated
if I could stop falling
in love with souls unable
or unwilling to
love me back.
But thus far my heart
seems to be one that
can find no other
path.
:iconAppliedPhilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher
:iconappliedphilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher 7 4
Literature
Remnants
I sought pathways remembered
of old, Thin Places
where I had encountered
and been acknowledged
by illuminating
Spirit, embracing who
I am, dancing with all
I was becoming.
Now I find that Powers
and Authorities have
been busy: barricading,
assembling, Thickening,
working to silence
haunted whispers, block
ethereal flow.
Yet Remnants linger:
hints of glory that was,
that again will be.
Merlin's call, Tennyson's
verse urge me onward:
"Follow the Gleam."  I glimpse
streams of color and light
revealing hidden
contours, magic etched
into fabric of all
that is.
:iconAppliedPhilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher
:iconappliedphilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher 8 10
Literature
Hard to Escape
At this point, it is
hard to escape the
conclusion that if
my soul-mate exists,
she is, as am I, a
time traveler, and we
keep meeting in the wrong
order.
:iconAppliedPhilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher
:iconappliedphilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher 10 12
Literature
First Song
Troubles small and large
arrive as legion,
assaulting consciousness
with near-constant barrage,
threatening to overwhelm
with dread and despair.
But cicada's first song
finds me unexpectedly,
gentle but insistent
reminder that summer
is yet newly dawned,
season of light and life
in which thousands of
glorious moments
wait to ripen and
unfold.
:iconAppliedPhilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher
:iconappliedphilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher 5 3
Literature
Distant Star
I walk alone, refugee
on my own native
soil, alien among
my own kind, yearning
for spirits kindred;
finding only truncated
connections, relationships
that cannot survive
beyond superficial
shallows.
But suddenly, light
from distant star, love
from distant heart dawns
above farthest horizon,
searching with intention
until deepest fathoms
of my soul are touched with
tender, intimate
illumination.
Doors shut since long before
memory can grasp now
open to possibility,
to hope that what was lost
may yet be found, what
was broken may yet
be made whole.
Melody both ancient
and new surrounds and
permeates my spirit;
every breath and heartbeat
echoes to celestial
rhythm.
:iconAppliedPhilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher
:iconappliedphilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher 8 6
Literature
All I Can Find
I long for meaningful
connections, for bonds of
deep affection to
sisters and brothers,
fathers and mothers,
daughters and sons in
sincere communities
of Spirit and Truth.
But all I can find
are the well-organized
franchises of the
Religious-Industrial
Complex.
:iconAppliedPhilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher
:iconappliedphilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher 7 12
Literature
Home
My real home
can only be found
on a map of places
that don't exist.
:iconAppliedPhilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher
:iconappliedphilosopher:AppliedPhilosopher 16 6
Literature
Mission Statement
To prepare and equip
students to defend
against the dark arts of
prejudice, conformity,
and ignorance.
