Meet Sir Ursius and Galahad

I would like to introduce the newest members of my diverse toy family - Sir Ursius and Galahad. Sir Ursius is a large, plushy, white bear with a cheerful countenance. Galahad is similar but much smaller in size, and wears a red bowtie. They are an inseperable pair, owing to the fact that Galahad is sewed to Ursius. Cornflower has taken an instant like to the bear knights, and has kidnapped them from their fortress at least four times in as many days. I think Galahad likes her, but Sir Ursius is not happy with these proceedings. Galahad, I've discovered, likes anyone who will hug him.

Pie in the Sky

Oh dear
i fear
that i
can't fly
but if
you sniff
you soar
for more!
more what?
a glut
the sky
is pie
and i
know why
of fuzz
that flies
and cries
and sighs
and dies
and then
the jinn
comes through
the slough
and takes
and bakes
the pie.

this poem is by
mother auma and i.

Glenna Sere

Il seria melë glenna sere:
Si muna tisera na ayë.
Si lanta srim yrram ra ila osse,
Tiaril il laene ran ayosse,
Si lynna ri melë riëlis,
Lyarem srim si taeth rithis!
Si ossla anore srim ynnde,
Il seria melë glenna sere!


I see with new eyes:
The world glistens in light.
Rain has come through my night,
Trees I know all sparkle,
The meadows shine brightly.
Gone is the veil of mist!
The darkened window has vanished,
I see with new eyes!

1 Corinthians 13:12 – For now we see through a glass, darkly…
