Blue Resonant Eagle/ Blue Spectral Hand - Cosmic Turtle Moon of Presence, Day 26

Jennifer Elise Foerster, Muscogee (Creek).

Before makers
there were maps.
There was skin. Stone.

There was time:
the ripening
of corn. Moonlight

and her shadow. Grief
given space: a circular
shelter. We stayed inside

for a number of days.
Stacked rocks around ourselves.
The clock was a gate.

There were highways.
Mined gashes.
We were slit, bled.

Slid to the ledge
of the dark province.

There were crosses: spiders
to sew shut the wounds
we reaped for you, Magdalena.*

Kin 215: Blue Resonant Eagle

I channel in order to create
Inspiring mind
I seal the output of vision
with the resonant tone of attunement
I am guided by the power of accomplishment.

World Noosphere Day. Feast of Mary Magdalene (Catholic). an utterly clear mental field is required to create laser-like focus.*
