Initiation

On symbolic thresholds and unintentional rites of passage.
Like The Fool in the major arcana we move forward into the uncertain,
the unknown,  the uncomfortable. Knowing this too shall pass.















 





INITIATION: Anointed for the Journey

Now we wake
after a lifelong reverie
only to find a threshold that unveils more uncertainty



a line becoming a point
(speaking a tongue without tense)



a wave becoming a circle
(circular time being unveiled)



a blurred portal making us lose sight of ourselves
(an unexpected initiation)

INITIATION: Free Fall Into Uncertainty

an initiation, a rare conjunction, an opening into ourselves ⠀

(this)⠀
a threshold blurred beyond recognition -⠀
what I thought I was and what I think I am are the same -⠀
delusions projected.⠀

(now)⠀
an intention, a step forward, a floating emotion rising to the surface -⠀
we all being and becoming -⠀
never not changing.⠀

(us)⠀
holding hands while we waltz into the unknown -⠀
any definition will only become fiction.
