Hymn 909

The Immortal World

 

 Soap bubbles caught by the wind and flung

High up towards the smiling sun

In rainbow colours gaily dressed

Once loved, twice treasured and three times blessed

However short their blessed flight

Reflect life’s radiance and light

So we each float careless and free

From evolution’s destiny

And glitter and flash and shine so bright

With creation’s joy, creator’s light

And with momentous strength create

The immortal world in perfect state

 

There is no time, this time is all

Where civilisations rise and fall

And memories of our fleeting lives

Still shine like stars in timeless skies

And lives the folk of past times lived

Forever remain a timeless gift

There is no time tho’ time seems king

Of matter, space and everything

Yet all these things serve but to show

The beauty of the here and now

 

Perception’s moment, the phoenix “I”

Is ever reborn and does not die

But lays its mark on timeless slate

Where time has neither heft nor weight

And happy times, joy’s every spark

Carve words of light upon the dark

And when our world grows pale and old

And when the stars grow dim and cold

 

 

 

Our lives of joy will be retold

As time inverts and stars reform

Our words of love will be reborn

 

Soap bubbles caught by the wind and flung

High up towards the smiling sun

In rainbow colours gaily dressed

Once loved, twice treasured and three times blessed

However short their blessed flight

Reflect life’s radiance and light

So we each float careless and free

From evolution’s destiny

And glitter and flash and shine so bright

With creation’s joy, creator’s light

And with momentous strength create

The immortal world in perfect state

Nine Questions from The Book of Nine

May 18, 2014

Question One

 

This place smells of urine, of damp wood, of soil.

There’s wood beneath his shoulders, beneath his hips, beneath his heels.

Freedom of movement?

He has little or none.

.

He explores the length and breadth of his domain.

Reach sideways and there’s wood against his elbows, his wrists, the backs of his hands.

He lifts his head: his forehead touches the underside of a rough wooden board.

There is light in here. This place, this new world, is not entirely dark.

Light hovers like a halo – faint, intangible and valueless – just above his chest.

His voice rasps out.

“Why am I here? By Ost, Gryst and Kupritzia, why am I here?”

It is a stupid question.

The nine gods of Arkutsk, not known for their sympathy, all clamour their reply.
