Members of the group have been considering the question: What is a lifespan? Responses address biological lifespans with death as an undisputed eventuality but also look at the lifespan of inorganic materials and the implications for the planet. Some explorations have been set in deep time, others in momentary experiences.
The Celtic ancient custom of Imbolc suggests setting the intention for returning light in our days, a promise of spring's warmth and growth returning once again. The sweet scent of early blooming sarcococca and haemmamaelis has been in the air for weeks now; the earth does indeed give us hope for spring's awakening.
With this time of year we consider gratitude and love for those we cherish. If you receive my newsletter you are aware of my "Heart to Heart' event coming up on February 10-11. this is a special time to honour those who have followed my work and supported my career over the years. I look forward to seeing you then.
Rising Currents 11/17/17
by Deborah Putman
Ocean blood of my body,
white foaming bubbles finger daylight shorelines.
Water flows indigo blue, a night sky mirror
Offerings of flour and honey
honour gamboling Oceanids.
Black void, embryonic cradle,
hold her close, as lungs breathe life.
Sea organisms thrive in birthing beds below.
Complete with summer’s water coverlet
A diamond galaxy, reflect a lion sun above.
Inevitable birthright of change
Nourish tomorrows juicy with life,
desperate angry days in ruin,
A world renewed surfaces.
Rebirthed vessel afloat, intact
Tender world encircles compassion.
