The Heavens and Earth ~ Veiled in White

veiled in white is the sky above
covered in white is the earth below
in this morning new a bridal array
such be the presence of a cold wintery day....

the marriage of the heavens and earth in this moment now
hear I the blessing, the devotion, the vow
each to serve and in eternal glory be
mountains, rivers, streams, oceans and seas
come forth they with forests, plants and beauty divine
with the sun, the moon, many a star to shine
and we to celebrate the splendor and love
of the earth and heavens above.

The Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus:
 "That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above,
 and that which is Above corresponds to that which is Below, 
to accomplish the miracle of the One Thing." 


When ordained anew to be 'the messenger,' one sees that it is glory and beauty that is to be conveyed... this the willing devotion of a poet... this too, your calling. Each storm shall pass, each quake shall settle, each dawning shall there be light.
