Moments of Perfection


In my New Moon Circle

I sit with my animals,

a Dove calls,

the morning awake.

I feel

I cry

I love

I set my intentions this

Pisces New Moon, acknowledging

Seven planets in Pisces!

All is love That is all.

The God of Poets Has Two Hands

Beginning to see the light. Acrylic on canvas, 48 x 48 inches. © 2012 by Kathy CrabbeMy mom calls this one sinister, my best friend, Jen calls it 'almost holy' but whatever happened during the process of creation, I can't really say, it felt channeled and it felt like having my good friend, Tangerine of Revolution Truth visit while I painted helped make it what it is. Astrologically, both my progressed moon and sun are in Scorpio; it's time to cut the bullshit, no? Sinister or holy, what do you think? The Poet Has Come Back (by Margaret Atwood)

The poet has come back to being a poet after decades of being virtuous instead.

Can’t you be both? No. Not in public.

You could, once, back when God was still thundering vengeance

and liked the scent of blood, and hadn’t got around to slippery forgiveness.

Then you could scatter incense and praise, and wear your snake necklace,

and hymn the crushed skulls of your enemies to a pious chorus.

No deferential smiling, no baking of cookies, no I’m a nice person really.

Welcome back, my dear. Time to resume our vigil,

time to unlock the cellar door, time to remind ourselves

that the god of poets has two hands: the dexterous, the sinister.
