March of the Amethyst Camel

From the Quran:

“Do they never reflect on the camels and how they were created, and on the sky, how it is raised aloft, and on the mountains, how they are firmly set up, and on the earth, how it is spread out?” (88: 17-20)

Upon your back
You carry the burden
Of admiration and kindness

Adorned in amethysts
Garnished with gold
Protected by porcelain

You are a nurturer
Comforting the divine child
Within our hearts

You see the beauty
And the youth within
Spectators of your glance

Apparition of a goddess
Symbolizing the fertility
Of our desire to stay young

Sometimes guarding those
Desperate for warmth
Upon this territorial tundra

Your maternal instincts are craved
For you are the giver
Who guarded the offspring

Protected the potential
For a league of sages
Preparing to lead the exodus

Pondering the creation
of sacred geometry and hieroglyphics
within eight lanes of a double helix

-Jacob R. Moses

Prima Materia (poem)

Photo by Mikhail Nilov on

Burning the sage to engulf a new brand

Rich calcification is no sleight of hand

Repression and trauma, falling to the floor

Depression, dilemmas, kick them out the door

Dissolving the sorrows into the bare ground

Gushing of water declines by the pound

Tears begin running while scoping the womb

Escaping the wrath of a self imposed tomb

To separate solids, the opposites blend

To form the realities Hermes has penned

Severing egos, choose what will remain

In light of the burning and flushing of pain

Above and below, the conjunction will rise

Below and above, the bright gold is the prize

Our connections to deities rise to the top

Epiphanies crackling, revealing a pop

Fermenting and rotting, the shit hits the fan

Prima materia ceases its span

Old decomposing, breakdown persists

Let this antiquated perception desist

Distilling and purification transpires

The type of result that one often admires

Attachment to self and the heartache as well

Will mimic vibrations that send you to Hell

Coagulate, make sure the balance remains

Manifestation of riches contained

Spirit to spirit, the bridges now link

You and the world are now truly in sync

-Jacob Moses
