زرقاء اليمامة*

therosesign:

Hands chained
By distance
And eyes
Blessed
To be free.

How can I
Extingusih
A fire that’s
So far away
From me,
But can
Still see?

~Nanaya

*Zarqa al Yamama- a blue-eyed woman with exceptional intuition, keen sight, and ability to predict events before they happened. Zarqa’s tribe relied on her powers in detecting enemies and defending their land. (pre-Islamic Arabian myth)

Quetzalcoatl- “feathered serpent”

The wise maintain a light, a torch, a stout torch that does not smoke;
A perforated mirror, 
A mirror pierced on both sides. 
His are the black and red ink,
His are the illustrated manuscripts….
He himself is writing and wisdom.
~Codice Matritense

Sun Memories

therosesign:

With every sunset
The warriors
Hold high
The lamp
Of their desire
To evoke
A new dawn
That will awaken
Life, not war.
