leg of gold
cast from liquid
Pleiadean Rebellion
Emporium, showcase
ether spinning orbit braced
by neither handicap nor flaw,
but by that of the alchemistry
of DNA, magical meditation, the
Pleiadean glyphs in black and gold
reawakening ancient memories, aligned
in basic self-aware identity,

the Bowl of Gold
theory, rich gold veins
emanated from a volcanic
crater, varicose incarnate strangled
blood flow, Cripple Creek - miners named
the settlement after the creek that ran through
it, thus Cripple Creek by the local cowboys because
so many cattle were crippled when they tried to cross the
rocky waters,

Cresson Shaft
at the base and
Callie claim on Gold
Hill, rare certificate
issued 115 years ago,
200 shares worth $5 each
printed by the Elgan Bank Note
of Denver,

ghost town
saviour to spirit,
medicine to mobility,
grab your umbrella of
infinity, it's a powerful

whoa! Up on cripple creek!

You've carried your horse all over the south and mid-west, Sage.

Like a Silk Road trader, you've brought back many precious treasures from your travels.

Don't be long in saddling up again! :-) kenny

Sage, I agree with all the praise this incredible work
has inspired from those who preceded me. Technically,
if you'll pardon the word, I admire again the skill
of your alliteration. -gene

as the motility of my heart can see
"Leg of Gold: Medicine to Mobility"
is so much more than a ghost town
more than monetary remembrance
a fortune of memories with teemingness

Gold tooth dentist apprentice
Cashed a share
Cowboy wanted a refund
Mother lode migrated
Stuck in his throat
Till Saddlebag Medicine Man
Demonstrates first Heimlich
Keeps the projectile
Doubles down at the table
But draws fives

Another Sage leap into connectivity, the overview unique, the links as bold and striking as a Beethoven late quartet.

I was in Jerome last month. Your piece made me think of it again. I know it was not about Jerome. Good write as usual it took me two times to follow.

Reviewed by Jon Willey 9/19/2010
Sage, Greek mythology a monetary system and the old west gold rush towns thrown in with a bit of cattle history and Cripple Creek. You melded them together in such an entertaining fashion. A mighty fine piece of artwork. Somewhere in the middle I began to recall my visit to the former mining town of Jerome. Ghosts the largest segment of the current population in that place helping the struggling artists with inspiration. This is a most enjoyable rendering my dear friend. May peace and love be with you.Jon Michael

Hope you enjoy. My one problem is when I get to talking, I sometimes forget the questions. lol Love, Joyce
Reviewed by Peter Schlosser (Reader) 9/19/2010
Gold has often been described as an expression of love, infinite in its intrinsic worth and a veritable store of value for any who learn to cherish and multiply it. Then you have our modern money system, theft by paper, debauching and confiscation of wealth by way of fiat. Again you awaken atavistic streaks of buried memories and tied these into the rough and tumble era of westward expansion with a twist of perspicacious philosophical certainty. Excellent piece.

Sage: You always amaze me...always. I need to do a whole lot more reading here at your place.
