Melencolia Redreamed

 

At the Lunar Gate of 28 days

14 looked in, 14 turned away

cradling Christ's crown

in a crystalline wheel

love braided' round

the last golden seal

 

In the seven-fold womb

harmonically formed

the heat gave birth

7 eyes, 7 horns!

Changed by the fire

to a singular state

the umbilical spire

arose from its weight

time's web held open

by the helical flight

of a soul set in motion

internally light

 

sparkling as diamonds

in a heart-lit embrace

the vision revealed

the structure of space

 

eternal truths traced

from the geometer's lance

patterns and re-minders...

God's celestial dance
