The Song of Seven Veils
…From Heart to Head a Lay…
My First is sinuous, scaly and smooth
It is found in lake but not in love,
what is below is like that above…
My Sixth lies at sea and in
the depths of the night, it is hard
to engender this spark of light.
My Second twinkles on high and
stands proud in the earth, this double
entendre is light strewn when birthed.
My Fifth is a man-child
forgotten by time, adrift on
a lotus… the flowering kind.
My Third is fire-bright and
flies like a flash, it is feathery
too, forever rising from ash…
My Fourth is hawk borne
and can teach us to fly it is
also known as the Silent Eye.
…From Head to Heart, a Way…
In Loving Light
