Message of the Ouroboros in 2006: Lesson in Greed

The Jeweled Ouroboros and the Wreck of Sagittarius Lair

Ouroboros connects
above and below

status quo
from the highest
point of the Heavens
to the depths of the sea.

Sagittarius, the Archer,
the constellation,
center of our
Milky Way galaxy,
the serpent of light
residing in the Heaven.

Embracing coils,

Ouroboros locks jaws
upon itself

spitting venom in
unending law,
striking with awe,
fear mingled with
disjoined in

the clash of

injecting life into
death into life,

unfriendly competition,
which rises out of
greed, to see which
portion of Ouroboros
can dive deep enough
to reach the Jeweled
Ouroboros first
and take,

which sank like the
blue jewel on the
Titanic, the Jeweled
Ouroboros went
down in the wreck
of Sagittarius Lair,
the serpent of dark
residing in the

in a battle of
good and evil,
light and dark,

Diving deep in
off itself it
will feed,

Ouroboros takes
from its ownself,
one in the same,
the Jeweled Ouroboros,

swallowing its own tail
in greed,

feeding back on itself.


Beginning and end,
a continuous unending.

is so amazing. I have enjoyed reading this Sage & I look forward to reading the rest of your offerings to Ourobos!!!

Circumferencing the facets of polarities into union, the Ourboros!!

In Chinese, the number 8 means unending prosperity. I do not know whether it is greed or not, but who doen't want to be prosperous?

If hoping to prosper means greed, then I guess a lot of people are greedy...

A very thought-provoking piece and interesting picture.

Can't wait for your next post.

Okay, I wrote half a novel on the last one. This time I'll say, cool and provocative write, Sage. :-) Keep us thinking! ~~Nordette

the idea of a continuous unending fascinates me. nice balance between the story and the shorter line lengths. Dawn

this would be wonderful to hear read aloud, a chant of sorts. Nice tight lines. I'm always amazed at the variety of line in our Ad community. Truly, the art of poetry is a sinewy coiling bejeweled snake, and sometimes a blue frog... does this - croak - make sense? k

The many aspects of the duality are fascinating, and you have covered one aspect here very well, made it enjoyable too;-)
Thanks Sage!

Damn, you are getting into deep waters here. You are onto a perfexct vehicle for your expertise and quick wit. Your inner thoughts must radiate with kaleidoscope, fantastic images, because you most certainly know how to transpose them onto the parchment paper of life.
