Sulis, the butterflies and the bugs: an entomology of souls

Sulis B, by Andrew Taylor, 2021

being an insect

 

the sounds of circular white light 

 

disturbed, 

 

by only the fluttering of the july butterfly flight,

 

sulis the goddess of life

 

rising and setting

 

 in a timelessness of space

 

all underneath her 

 

face towards their evolutionary race.

 

dawn's first light breaks, 

 

a web mist morn 

 

the buck calls 

 

humans still, sleep 

 

 as the day announces it is open,

 

we hear the truth of life spoken,

 

through the sound entanglements drawn across 

 

each other,

 

the instruments made to invoke 

 

who we really are,

 

the light of sulis,

 

our soul star. 

 

we are all bugs and butterflies reaching 

 

for her light.

 

we are full of vibrations as night falls we go,

 

her warmth is remembered

 

in the buck moon glow.
