SoulCollage® – Council Suit – Primordial


Born of mud
I am sulfur and primordial earth
Emerging from a cave of ancient stone
Worn by eons of wind and water

I am the Keeper of Deep Sorrows
Painted with the ash of
Innumerable past lives and loves
Dried grass, hand-knotted
Ties and binds me to all who’ve come before

I am the withering of green earth
Fading from vibrant life
Drying out and decaying

I am a warrior in training
Returning yet again
To master hello and goodbye

I am the spiral of eternity
The unfolding of time
Birth and rebirth and rebirth

Expressed for one brief moment
As this body, in this now

I am but a wrinkle in time

Wonderful @SoulCollage(TM) workshop with Kathy Shimpock today! This is my favorite of 3 cards created today, and a poem that emerged from the “I am one who” exploration that followed.

      Thanks, Joi. As soon as I found the image of the boy, it was speaking to me deeply. When I did the “I am one who” dialogue work (as recommended in the SoulCollage(r) process), most of these words came through. I only edited a bit and added a few lines to create the poem from the raw notes of that dialogue.
