Hawk Spirit

Updated: Apr 4


Self Portrait

I am a hawk spirit I dance with snakes. They are beautiful in the way that they move.


They bite me, n surrender their venom. They make me stronger n then I eat them.


I am balanced n consensus n synchronicity n co-conspiracy n reciprocity with the All.


If you are attracted to me I promise you this, you will not appreciate my bluntness.


If you are a snake I will eat you n offer you to my children.


Children, be critical thinkers of the Now first, Past n Future. Are you capable, to rise above impulse?


Pause…


Fear is a dream, an illusion we create. But so is young Love. Danger is real.


I am a hawk I dance with snakes You are beautiful in the way that you move.

Tool - Culling Voices (Lyric Video)


Disembodied voices deepen my 

Suspicious tendencies

Conversations we've never had

Imagined interplay

Psychopathy 

Don't you dare point that at me


Heated altercations we've never had

So I'm told

Yet guided by them all

Every single one


Psychopathy

Misleading me over and over and over


Judge, condemn, and banish any and everyone

Without evidence

Only the whispers from within


Psychopathy

Misleading me over and over

Psychopathy

Misleading me over and over and over


Don't you dare point that at me

Don't you dare point that at me


Don't you dare point that at


Don't you dare

Don't you dare

Don't you dare point that

Don't you dare

Don't you dare

Don't you dare point that at

As a reader, I can only read meaning from the words, whereas the writer imbues meaning into them. The processes are different, but hopefully, no less valid or revealing about those who engage in them. What I mean to say is, the meaning I read from the words may or may not be different than what was intended, but hopefully it is no less meaningful, if that makes sense.


This poem, Hawk Spirit, I find myself frequently returning to. I find it fascinating. Especially in contrast to Our Lady Gaia, which is a celebration of harmony and love. Where Our Lady Gaia is full of warmth and gratitude for nature and all the creatures in it, all at peace with…

The symbolic duality you see between the two poems--Yin and Yang if you will--for me the symbol has blurred lines. Also, I see those blurred lines and edges as widened, refracted areas or cracks that appear to be intentional lines or boundaries. Not unlike how light enters a crystal and fills the space outside it with prismatic color or lack of it. For me, the nature of the symbol becomes more wholistic rather than two-dimensional.
