The Riddle of the Initiate

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

*
