…watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you…




“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world
around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden
in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in
magic will never find it.”

~ Roald Dahl ๐Ÿ’š

#PoeticThursday . . . . Life!




Life.

A crust of bread and a corner to sleep in,
A minute to smile and an hour to weep in,
A pint of joy to a peck of trouble,
And never a laugh but the moans come double;
And that is life!

A crust and a corner that love makes precious,
With a smile to warm and the tears to refresh us;
And the joys seem sweeter when care comes after,
And the moan is the finest of foils for laughter!
And that is life!

โ€”Paul Lawrence Dunbar

#Omens&Symbols . . . . The Doorway




Doorway
The entrance to a house or sacred space symbolically marks the divide between the sacred
and the profane, the transition from one stage of life to another, the passage from life to
death. To ensure an entrance is more secure from evil influences, people carve motifs into
the surrounding supports, or add symbolic “totems” to the door itself, such as a horseshoe or
door knocker.

#Omens&Symbols . . . . the Hourglass




Hourglass
Contains the sands of time and is symbolic of time passing and life running out.
Is symbolizes the transitory nature of life and indicates that death is unavoidable.
Death and old Father Time invariably carry an hourglass to remind mankind of the
passage of time. Hourglasses were a popular motif on tombs and memorials in
the 18th century.

Tides!





Every day the sea

blue grey green lavender

pulls away leaving the harbourโ€™s

dark-cobbled undercoat

slick and rutted and worm-riddled, the gulls

walk there among old whalebones, the white

spines of fish blink from the strandy stew

as the hours tick over; and then

far out the faint, sheer

line turns, rustling over the slack,

the outer bars, over the green-furred flats, over

the clam beds, slippery logs,

barnack-studded stones, dragging

the shining sheets forward, deepening,

pushing, wreathing together

wave and seaweed, their piled curvatures

spilling over themselves, lapping

blue grey green lavender, never

resting, not ever but fashioning shore,

continent, everything.

And here you may find me

on almost any morning

walking along the shore so

light-footed so casual.


~ Mary Oliver.
