For followers of alchemy and transformation of mind, body, and soul through the Philosophers Stone
Alchemical Chalice: The Grail Cube
to the fires
more fires at
as a teardrop.
Amidst the running
waters in golden,
distilling gold in
The tree which
bornes the worm
from the white
from the fairy
of wisdom and
Love is unique,
wants subjects who
have besides themselves.
Snakes newly born and
yield to the winged
one, The Grail Cube.

|Agh..the great Philsopher's Stone that the medieval alchemists used to transmute base metal into gold !
Aleister Crawley and the Order of the Golden Dawn fraternity were reputed to have had access to these arcane and mysterious puzzles !
Similarly the Muslims' Kabba is reputed to house a magical green cube that fell from the celestial skies, and was recovered by Abraham !
Wonderful and fascinating stuff you are producing Sage !

|I go with Eileen, your thought process is would so tight and when it lets go, something fine spews forth from your pen. Although alchemy and me don't travel the same road, that takes nothing away for the marvelous job you did on the Chalice in the piece.|

|beautiful photo and intriguing poem. The Holy grail is different for everyone, ie. to make millions or spread love and happiness, peace and and end of striving (Buddha's detachment!). Hope your lifting the chalice somewhere, sage! k|

|Mmmmm... this one sucks you in and doesn't let go... warm and compelling - like a charm or a spell. Can feel me eyes goin all higgly-wiggly as the hermetics draw me hypnotically. The mystical is always such a subtle blend of all world religions and each kind of overlays and shadows the other - but with significant points of divergence, perhaps, which you don't notice until you really dig deeper. The Alchemic has an earthy closeness to the material, carbon-based elements of our life, I think; appeals to our mortal parts that long and strive for immortality. This is beautifully crafted and honed and, as ever, is mystically instructive; lavish with richness and opulent description. Brilliant! :)) K xx|
