Inspired by all 3 images
Triangles and Circles
Full moon wanes then waxes,
maiden becomes matron, then crone,
future slips into present and passes–
every triangle a part of a circle,
each point an in-between
we focus on, a tip of the infinite.
We transform the mysterious
into gods, turn gods into demons
with claws and wings,
three-headed for the trinity of things.
We demonize the other,
fear desires and dreams,
unexplained light might be scary
but darkness of the mind scares me more.

Thank you, Paul.
I like that idea of every triangle being part of a circle, each point just a staging post.
Yes, there is a big difference between being afraid of the dark, and having that darkness filling your head.
Yes, there is always something in-between and always circling.
The darkness in some people’s heads is very scary!
We’re being told to accept so much insanity that nobody would believed in a few years ago. The darkness changes shape over the years, but it never goes away.
True. The craziness just goes on and gets even more crazy.

Thank you, Michael!
My pleasure, Merril! Have a nice Sunday! xx Michael
You, too, Michael!
Thank you, Derrick. 🙂
I love how you wove the three prompt images into a cohesive, albeit chilling, whole.
Thank you so much, Liz!
You’re welcome, Merril!
This one is like an incantarion. (K)
Thank you, Kerfe. Perhaps the way I was feeling.
Oh, Merril – I’m not particularly looking forward to becoming a crone! Hopefully it’s a long way off yet…
I’m sure it is. 🙂
