Coralline Chorus Line

Sussurating waves sighing 
like trees in the wind
our Singers hidden in the shallows
beneath rippling sunlight

Certain of their place
within Universe's wheel
as together they build gardens
upon their carefully prepared site

Yet One
One heart
One body
One mind
A Community 
of many parts
Bone palaces
Skeleton spires
Providing shelter
and support
for our neighbors 
with symbiotically beneficial hearts

Spineless yet persistent
Stinging grasping fingers
feed our hungry mouths
when the Sun 
provides no bread
We struggle to thrive now
T'wixt rising heat, pollution,
and humanity's depredation
Our dwindling numbers
may soon become
little more than 
bleached bones
scattered across the seabed

Build your world patiently
Create in harmony
Honor diversity
Conserve compassionately
Embrace the simple gift
of coming round 
to where you ought to be
If our sacrifices 
embed this Wisdom 
in your souls
Neither our song 
nor our silence
will be in vain. 

For those new to the game, each piece is inspired by a Teacher found in Nature; a star, stone, animal, plant etc that holds lessons of Wisdom for us. Can you guess who is singing today?

Strength Begins with Truth

Earth Rainbows
Banded beauties

We will protect you
attract Strength
We will cleanse
harmonize your aura
by transforming negative energy
into good vibrations.

We will shield even your dreams
Wick away energy drains
Sooth stress
Pillowed by your head each night
We will sing you
rare and varied dreams

We can teach you
the Wisdom of Fidelity & Acceptance

We will show you
that you have the fortitude
to carry on.

We reveal your courage
Balance yin yang
Ground you
Strengthen your connection
to our Mother's heartbeats

We will feed your creativity
sharpen your intellect
steady your self-confidence
Help turn you inward or outward
to examine the needs of a situation

Plumed or placed upon
the solar plexus
We will unknot your anxieties
Releasing resentments
Draining the bitter
 to make way for the sweet.

Blue Lace
for those who feel the need to scream
just to be heard
Elegant soothing blue ripples
like a bit of sky in your pocket
to calm, encourage & uplift

Crazy Lace
for joyful laughter and optimism
Mossy stones of healing Earth
for those that Garden
or work the soil.

Named for the Grecian river
where we were first discovered
sometime around the third century
though family members today
may be found scattered round the World.
Our eyes stand watch
over the sensitive and lonely.

We help keep the energy flowing
Help you sing your Truth
in hopes of creating a Hollow Bone...
