Talisman from Tegsh

Tegsh is the ‘Presence’ at the Manor House at Sakin’el,
who touches everyone who comes here — even in spirit.
Many, who don’t believe in such things, are drawn to ask,
“who is she — you know …?” Not a ghost or kami —
she chose us to be her guardians here, Em and I,
and she would speak to you Darryl, Heather, friends and all …

Best I could do for her is share this actual photograph taken by a
Forest Service worker scattering ashes of a friend on the high peaks.


I heard …

“it is a matter of catching up,
of learning what you already understand”

Ah – perhaps the most profound words
yet written – embraced upon
the scrolls of this Manor –
hidden away in memories.

Note? Yes, and again yes in praise!

This thought is surely a reverberation –
a soul echo of the Bell of Eternity,
that links the ‘you’ seen in another,
with the ‘you’ of self –
and all.

For ‘you’ are to ‘me’
as ‘one’ are to ‘we’,
for together there is more
than can be summed in reason –
and the wisdom we can gain in reflection
is always of re-membering creation,
in which ‘you’ means ‘one’,
and ‘we’ means everything.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

and part of this Presence of Tegsh
is the sounds of harp strings aflutter –
either caressed by Lady Emrys
or plucked by our furry Raven –
and they are never silent
if you choose to listen …

a harp carved of forever

Though a harp is carved of forever,
and tuned in the key of we;
the harmonic curve is an angle wing
that does but kiss the piller of fire,
held firm by the countless strings of being.
Each does sound a different note,
but all do meet in finality,
as one and all
in symphony

One thought on “Talisman from Tegsh”

  1. This is amazing. Each of us who were with Darryl when he died will not forget the soft rain that bought life and green to the adjacent park where we held his service. Since his death it has been cool and more rain has fallen and bought life back to so many things.
