Language Yoga – Shield and Sword : A Poem

shield and sword

A shield
Creates an effective boundary
A form of self protection
It is it’s own torus field
Torus shield

A sword
Penetrates a boundary
Merging through another
Another object
Another breathing
Another being

Using a sword
A delicate dance
Sometimes tragic
But beautiful
Sometimes solely used as an expression of art
Sometimes solely used to create endings
Which lead to new beginnings

Using a shield
One balances movement
With containment

Using a sword
One balances beauty
With death
Or life?

Fractals within

Merging with
Becoming my own whole Being

When I use the sword
To merge with my surroundings
I am delicate
Like a paintbrush
Like a ninja
Or Tibetan monk
Using chopsticks
To capture that fly
Ultimate grace
Like the mantis
Who sits in stillness
Feeling for just the right time
To strike

When I use my shield
To protect
Through generating
Love and appreciation
For myself
I sing the tones
Of an enchanting melody
Cooing myself
Into heightened awareness

Through my sword
I cut separation
And merge
And return
To oneness

Through my shield
I create boundaries
A container
To hold life

Positive / negative
Male / female
White / black
Love / fear
Yahweh / Kali
Jesus / Magdalene
War / peace

I see On Gaia
These polarities
Because they exist
Separately from
Each other

But where do I see
Yahweh and Kali Together?

And what
Would it feel like
To experience
Divine reunion?

The sword
Sits erect
Balancing on its knob

The shield
A torus field
Covers the sword
Sitting on top
Spinning round and round

All the colors
And sounds

Then everything
Upside down


And begins

Shield and Sword
