Poetry is Invocation

”Do you know what you are?
You are a divine manuscript of a divine letter.
You are a mirror reflecting noble face.
This universe is not outside of you.
Look inside yourself;
Everything that you want,
You are already that.”
– Rumi

To give words to the inner workings of the Soul is to invoke the gods in us all. The Poet is thus a powerful magus capable of unspeakable beauty and ultimate destruction. To know thyself their only cause, the Poet casts magick at each stroke of the pen to cull the Divine within. As above, so below. And upon their Works utterance unto the world, so a spell is cast and made manifest among us all.

A seemingly impossible task to the irreverent, modern logician willing to write off any semblance of divinity in favor of the mundane material, the Poet takes on this task as Magician with pure heart and guided Faith. Pure of heart insomuch that the modern eye think them blind, and yet, with sharpened scalpel in hand, they cut with such precision, sight unseen, as if there were a Light emanating from the dark void to excise the tumor that grows around our collective Soul. And what are we to make of this…magick?

In a world lost in the infinite grey, we should embrace and uplift these modern miracle workers and strive to find our own inner workings and bring them to Light. To bring awareness within is to apperceive the Divine. These are the Pursuits of Apperception.

With love,
