What’s done is done
The burden is eased, the cross surpassed
This awakening spell, employed quite ably
The sun and the stars, now ours en masse ~ L. Fleming, 2014
through sense of loss
What’s done is done, surrendered in equity,
ways of hearing
this bridge complete
green to blue
life through death
the burden is eased, the cross surpassed.
Declare our vision
be now energized
evil to sacred
a name’s interpretation
This awakening spell, employed quite ably,
Power the All’s
desire to be
ease and grace
our joyful experience
shared in peace.
Raise your glass
to adventures within
one’s highest truth
our expanded class,
the sun and the stars, now ours en masse.

An overview of this poetic experiment to Forge Meaning and Build Identity:
This Glosa represents Part 3 of a poetic experiment wherein I attempt to create an intentional conversation with the greater consciousness that will guide how I generate and forge personal meaning into a professional identity.
The initial protocol was to create three Glosa poems. The first focused on using a poetic quatrain addressing the initiation of my quest. The second quatrain and resulting glosa focused on my role, first to heal myself and discover what that healing inspired me to focus on in the world. The second component was then used as a bridge to the conversation’s third aspect, (seen above) a quatrain used to write a glosa focused on my desired result and the purpose of my time on Earth.
The three glosas, one with each quatrain, are written as discrete poems, which, when placed side by side, are read horizontally line by line across the three poems to create a fourth poem.
One could think of the initial three Glosa poems generated as the East, South, West cardinal points of a conversation that yields the fourth poem, a milestone articulation which inhabits the North cardinal point on this first spin around the conversation’s wheel.
