Shaman - Horse

Poem - Sun’s Sane Light

“Sun’s Sane Light” is about the need for the jester or trickster to bridge the hubris of the human condition and the wisdom of the divine. The intervening steps appear to be scathing madness, but in this the truth is revealed in its form beyond the petty striving of man.


Sun’s Sane Light

Surety is now perverted
rational put to the side
when it's twisted to reflect
the fears disguised as the truth

here's the joke, the saddest fact
the table trembles with hard fists
banging with intent so pure
sadly this is God’s prank

free will to scramble round
looking to puddle’s face
wondering who will resolve
the pain inflicted by false calm

the foolish run into the gap
knowing wisdom’s been lost
while they seek to display
the underpinnings have no legs

madness denies certitude
mountains of fact brought to dust
conviction rests in lost valleys
to be trod by jester's feet

lunacy shared by those who heal
pointing away from the puddle's flank
up to the sky the moon shines bright
reflection of the sun's sane light.
