Brand

The mark is made in birthing,
that moment of release,
when soul takes on its costume;
astrology decrees.

This brand which we are given,
the flavour of our being,
created in the world beyond
and worn as life revealed.

This nature we inherit,
was chosen through our will,
and guided by the angels;
our destiny distilled.

It is eternal imprint,
to shape us for this place,
and form our world material;
that god may know our name.

  1. Gloriously rich writing with phrasing that reaches down inside. "when soul takes on its costume" took my breath away.

    Beautifully realized, Roslyn.
