Lemniscate – a poem by Jehanne Mehta


(the Hanged Man)

You are upending.
Wisdom streams upwards
from below.

You are sole to soul now
with the Earth,
dazzled by her deep Light.

Inversion point.
The crossing at your sun centre
is activated:

total polar reverse…
shock waves racing, galaxy wide…

you are hanging into the sky now,

from one foot.

you see stars
shining out
from the hearts of friends.

Love is the shift key.

Love is the shift.
