WAY OF THE SEVEN STARS


Response To That Final Question:

Ignorance is the Bane of Man.
At a distance removed,
Dimly remembered, and
Still not seen distinct,
But yet somehow felt;
What we do sense
Is not reality; is not the Real Thing.
This World is hologram.
Then; for lucid sleep;
For it's just a dream
Within another dream
And we are not awake.

Seven Stars' Song of Revelation

Ignorance is a jail where no escape
Is possible but through knowledge.
Don't fear nor spurn. Dare to learn:

Assent to and accept this world as it is
Before attempting ascent to any world
Aspired to or wished for. Life's glorious!

That That Is can be known but by few.
Not space, not time, not gravity exists;
But as Extension from Field of Thought.

Be subject to neither church nor crown.

Dread naught. Disdain none: Not One!
Absent That That Is, there's Nothing.

That That Is, IS. That That's Not, IS, too.
That That's Not makes That That Is: IS.
That That Is makes That That's Not BE.

By rowing to That That Is, I become "I."
Wind + Water = Wave. As THOUGHT is
The Heart and The Nave of The Wheel.

Worlds are created from Thought alone.
That which we will do is because of that
What we are. We'll become who we are.

Charity, courtesy, civility, compassion,
Are cardinal spokes making civilization;
Chivalry forms center, hub's circle core.

IS is! Be not the slave of some other's I.
This, Creed of our Seven Stars Society;
This, The Teaching of the Seven Stars:

No man can be happy if he should choose
To be exile from his own nature and soul.
ALL IS THOUGHT ILLUMINATING BEING

Blue Sun Series: Confluence: Verse 135

Poetry is omission.
It's all those spaces that
Makes for splits, for jumps;
That empty in every line that 
Mirrors arcane symbols of maths
Underlying existence.
It's what not's there
That makes what's there
Real, true: Enduring.

Blue Sun Series: Confluence: Verse 134

The skies judge us with its grays,
Its blues, its violets, and with
Its sometimes reds; they sentence us
To crimson salmons for the pollutions
Of our lives, which all together make
For such grand and glorious sunsets:
Purity is often overrated.

Blue Sun Series: Confluence: Verse 133

Brave speech, if bravely spoken,
Is what expression is all about;
Words composed in a rhythm
That'll cause a sunshine squint
In the eyes of its audiences.
Music of Verse burrows in brains;
Digs inside, way before they'll know
They've been invaded by Poetry.

Blue Sun Series: Confluence: Verse 132

Sit. Be still. Stifle your indignation.
Scolds of the day can be carried,
With a pause, with an easy slight
Shrug, or by a silent recognition.
Stop to consider these critics lead
Metered lives; lives, ticketed for a
Mediocrity; for existences parked in
Zombie formations. In frozen time.

Blue Sun Series: Confluence: Verse 131

Cold blue steel sky. Unchanging weather.
No clouds. Just the big blind cataract sun Glaring down upon the city. Don't see us.
Don't care for us. Don't know we're here.
One-eyed blind stare. War is coming soon.

Blue Sun Series: Confluence: Verse 130

In that same worrisome way
We always have in thinking
Of all our troubles to come
Trampling on the morrow;
Yet with all of that anxiety,
With all that foreboding fear;
Still, still, we had our yesterdays,
And I have your smile. Still.

Blue Sun Series: Confluence: Verse 129:

It looked inevitable, seemed almost fated, 
Viewed from the precipice of the present.
How could such actions happen;
Such a belief in a moral superiority,
Again resulting in a tragedy of war?
How then shall our own fate be judged
When at mercy in the court of the future.

Blue Sun Series: Confluence: Verse 128

That suitcase we carry with us
Containing clothes of our past
Weighs to stoop our shoulders,
As it bows to bend the spine;
Making each step into the future,
The sliding drag of the infirmed
And the heavy halt of the old.
Drop it. Leave it behind.

Blue Sun Series: Confluence: Verse 127

The clay pot of skull
That holds the mind
Is soon shattered by
The stupidity of politics.
These sad politicians, in
Seeking their salvation,
By acquisition of power
Over others; if we take
Seriously, break brains.

Blue Sun Series: Confluence: Verse 126

All grows to dim in a winter twilight.
A slate-black glow from sinking Sun
Serves to illuminate deserted walks,
Emptied by dusk; street-lamps ignite:
Sulfur fires giving to a city's asphalt
Pavements a violet and violent hue.

Blue Sun Series:Confluence: Verse 125

Pewter waves rolling into shore,
Spliced by white plumes of spray
Singeing the air with smell of salt.
A fine November day, clean, crisp,
With a tang-snap of cold to come.
It shall prove to be a long Winter.

Blue Sun Series: Confluence: Verse 124

Serrated city, cut by violence,
Sits frozen in fear of tomorrow,
Of what comes silent, stalking
Upon its streets. Winds push,
Lean against thin buildings;
Prison the who've peered out
Behind their cracked blinds
On gray, on crackling clouds
Laced with lightning strikes.

Blue Sun Series: Confluence: Verse 123

Aluminum sky merges with sea
In the gray-blue annealing light
Of the dawn. Neither sky nor sea,
Yet distinct; mist rolling forwards
In white wave, obscures the view.
Everything slows down; and even
The Sun seems dimmed, far away:
Diminished.

Blue Sun Series: Confluence: Verse 122

Those great brave words
That so thrilled the soul,
That activated the spirit,
Are scarce spoken now;
Instead, one hears gibes
From the petty politicians
Who desecrate the past;
Who've made a mockery
Of the nobility of the dead.
