Templars

Poesy plus Polemics

knights_templar_battle_weary Battle Weary Knight Templar – Artist Unknown
knights errant
seduced by crusade
song of Solomon
papal authority
crescentine scimitars
cruciform swords
clashed in battles
of conscience
resounding with
shuddering echoes
a raging of holy wars
waged upon ruins
of temple and time
oh Jerusalem
wherefore thy
never-end suffering
hollow the triumphs
all turned to defeats
bearing vagaries
harshly converting
the warrior scions
to warrior thieves
stolen secrets of
ritual relics become
hidden treasures
the grail and the gold
and the ark and the
architrave knowledge
of reasons for faith
esoterica sacred and
sanguine the
clandestine mysteries
anciently known but to
grave reverent priests
holding keys to the
holy of holies
a fortune of sacrosanct
chattel and knowledge
now lost in a
somewhere unknown
like the honor and virtue
once righteous and pure
antebellum in hearts of
knights errant

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
