Susannah W. Simpson West Palm Beach (Regina Dilgen)
The Eight-Fold Path is Saturn’s glittering rings. The Eight-Fold Path unveils a beginner’s guide through the Nine Palaces, caverns filled with treasure. The Eight-fold path is silent steps, padded
feet, Hemingway’s many toed cats. It charts Heaven’s Seven Domes inlaid with a thousand
jeweled suns. It is a Merlin crystal, six-sided clarity. The Eight- fold path is our human form.
Five-points. Starfish, clinging to vast ocean bottoms. The Eight-fold path is a compass through
our Western tangled brush, Southern moist summers , Eastern shores, and Northern deep-sky
lakes. It is the Five elements, and exact stripe count of a zebra’s pelt. The Eight-fold path is
Scottish meadow thistle, armored plates on armadillo pups, soft owlet feathers the Eight-fold
path is to circle back.
