Message for a New Age

A new star touched the Earth last night

invisible even to watching eyes and

blessed us with a new opening.

For one whole revolution,

four and twenty hours,

we were bared open

in a star kissed moment

 of boundless possibility

betwixt the ages

- planet – people – all -


The new star,

quite unlike the old,

carried away the ancient gods and

time-worn promises of salvation

that were with us at the end of time,

and left in their stead

a delicate new space,

inviting, precious as parchment snow.


Which gods choose us now and

how the dreams we write are manifest

may just depend upon our offerings and

the visions carried aloft

in a thousand upon thousand new prayers,

and upon  the future warriors,

trained and ready to love

 - and love again -

life in all her guises.


Our midwives, the elder brothers, say

“Do not be afraid of the changes coming,

know only that

All Is Good.”
