|...when shall we three meet again... this has the mood of MacBeth's witches. However, I'm unclever, so i'll never understand this poem. It feels dark, halloween dark, wiccan dark.
That reminds me, this weekend the moon is going to look amazing, to those who don't live under a nation cover of cloud.

|How philosophically rich!
The passage to the rites may be open to all, but few seem to be called to enter thereupon. Do I have this at all right, Jon, or am I way off the mark?

|Your sharing is worthy of much more than a single reading as it awakens much thought and reflection, Jon. Love and peace to you,

|Straining my mind for metaphorical meanings,
many are called,
but few are chosen.
We want to see what we want to see,
but you make us look further.
Well done Jon.

|powerful truism, Jon ... "the real of ritual" does preclude the possibility of seeing clearly ... the objective is overshadowed by the subjective longings and language, implied and lived up to by the covenant ...
thought stimulating work ... enjoyed ...

|For a moment there I thought you were writing about vampires! But, thanks to John Flanagan, I guess you're writing about rituals. You sure have a way with words that surpasses my understanding. It's good to see you back writing poetry after your hiatus.

|literary pemmican, Jon, My Friend,
condensed but not suppressed evaluation
of spiritual forces and ritualistic behaviour..
challenging both in thought and understanding,
poetry of a high order forcing language into meaning
|Reviewed by Janna Hill
|I'm straining to see who it is convening on this dark wet night... the universal progenies that chant to alien bids and what covenant calls to them while cause holds to the hand of objectivity.
Thought provoking Jon.

|the covenant - god's promise to the human race, in the bible, or a binding contract, the offspring of evil, begotten of judgments and personal prejudices, yes they convene in ritualistic fashion in genocide agenda, or as rewritten, let's view "they convene" once again, the covenant - god's promise to the human race, in the bible, or a binding contract, the offspring of good, begotten of free will and diversity, yes they convene in ritualistic fashion in a neighborly agenda, like beauty it's all in the eye of the beholder and some of those eyes focus on ugly deeds because of lesser morals...thought-provoking Rumi-esque poetry, Jon...I leave you to ponder this review...

|-solutions are not within the realm of ritual-, indeed my friend, but it gives comfort of abstract prepositions,don't you think. A well versed tour, of heart and mind, and universe. Bless you Jon!
