Tanka: Sacred Stones


river cairn in Glen Roy in the rain


river and soft rains
washing the sacred stones
clear water
arranged by loving hands
blessed by the autumn moon

  1. Loving Hands of Stones.. as i was
    just exclaiming not too long ago.. how
    lucky we are to exist in pART by Nature
    of An Asteroid Stone some 66 Million years
    ago making the Gulf of Mexico
    what it is now
    and changing
    the Climate
    in Favor of a small
    Furry Rodent our Mammalian
    Warm Blooded Social Ancestor
    who then too feels oxytocin warm
    and Fuzzy Social Animal Love
    in HeART.. yes.. what a Loving
    Asteroid was and still is
    not so much for Dinosaurs
    at first in that struggle then
    but of course for they went a step
    higher evolved into birds and now
    they too dance and sing a song of life
    higher and even freer in some ways now..
    And hey that’s why i don’t let the current political winds
    get to me for hey.. we’ve already been through an asteroid
    and it’s
    won the
    Lottery of Heaven now..
    in other words.. i ain’t scared
    for LiGHt does coMe from the
    Darkest Days of ASteRoid plUMe..;)

    1. Thank you Denis, I knew what you meant! The water in this river has a brownish glow, possibly from peat and/or iron in the water and small amounts of gold have been found here too. The water and reflections on the stones give them a beautiful aura β˜ΊπŸ’¦πŸπŸ‚
