Feliz Primavera

                                "Bloom where you are planted"

"It is possible to believe that all the past is but the beginning of a beginning, 
and that all that is and has been is but the twilight of the dawn. 
It is possible to believe that all that the human mind has ever accomplished
 is but the dream before the awakening." - HG Wells 

Thank you Mother Earth and Great Spirit 
for all of your blessings!

Happy Holi!
Ostara by Thalia Took

The Ashes of Union 

O Soul, 
You are the Phoenix
   rising up from the ashes of Union. 
Why don't you fly? - 
No one knows you on the ground. 

You are the heart's sweetness 
And by some magical power 
   your form ravishes a thousand hearts. 

For a time you took form in the body. 
For a time you passed beyond the heavens 
   and the bonds of both worlds. 

Why can't the spirit find you?- 
You are its wings and its feathers. 
Why can't the eye see you?- 
You are the source of its sight. 

What will happen to your copper soul 
   when the Alchemist arrives?- 
Will it not become gold? 
what will become of your little seed
   when the Springtime arrives?- 
Will it not become a towering tree?
What will happen to brushwood 
   when it falls into fire?- 
Will it not change into sparks and rise to heaven?

Reason and intellect 
Are like the dim light of distant stars. 
You are the bright Sun 
   that shines through every veil. 

The world is nothing but snow and ice. 
You are the burning heat of Summer. 
O king, no trace of this world remain 
   the moment you arrive!

Who can sit by your side? 
Everyone would vanish with one glance of yours. 

O blessed eyes!
I have seen something beyond imagination, 
   unreachable by fortune or human effort- 
I have seen the perfect face 
   of Shams-e Tabriz.

- Rumi
