Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Shaman Would Advise Carl Jung


Carl Jung controversial
Jungian psychology views
petroglyphs atavistic

archetypal symbols
in different cultures
continents is a result

of mind genetically
inherited structures
in human brains

shaman would
say Jung embrace
whole visions

consider all influences
petroglyphs shamans
created in altered states

trance consciousness
induced by hallucinogens
natural prepared drugs

shaman mist mixtures
chants vibrations visions
unknown to scientists

geometric patterns
form mind constants
recur in petroglyphs

in cave paintings
are hard-wired
into human brains

frequently occur in
visual disturbances
in hallucinations

brought on by drugs
migraine stimuli catalysts
science still ponders

petroglyphs are complexities
lazy stillborn universities
dismiss as doodles rock arts

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
