“The Cosmic Serpent”

There are a number of people that will go on telling you/me/anyone and everyone that will listen. That with each new dawn, new day, starts a new beginning. They like to think and definitely say, that each day brings new hope for the future. It is the time to let the past be the past and look forward. I love optimism as much if not more than most people I know.

I am not here to cast shadows of doubt or lights of hope on the whole idea. I do wish to throw out there what I believe to be the beginning of such a theory.

The Egyptians believe(d) that eternity was not to last forever. That eventually Ra the son of God would tire and decide it was time to go back to his serpent form. Quoting from the book of mythology that I am reading: “A day would come when the son of God, Ra would tire and bring this world to an end. Then he would be reunited with Osiris in the primal waters of Nun. This was promised to Osiris when she was first given charge of the Underworld. Ra said he would destroy all creation. The land will fold into endless water, as it was in the beginning. He will remain there with Osiris after he has changed himself back into a serpent that men cannot know, and the gods cannot see. The serpent is the true original form of Ra, containing the elemental forces of both creation and chaos. It will sleep in the cosmic ocean, it’s head in it’s tail, until it awakes once more from slumber to create the world anew.”

     Pssst here comes the part I was referring to earlier. “To the creator, each cycle of human history is no more than a day, and all human hopes and dreams of eternal life last only until nightfall, when the universe will collapse in on itself, and return to the purity of primal nothingness.”

Is this what you feel when you are asleep? Primal nothingness? I haven’t slept all that well in a while. Does that mean my nothingness has never completely evolved? Are we forever stuck wrestling with the past until it does? OR Is it the future and what it may or may not hold that scares us into not renewing our universe?

Food for thought!!

Second Helping: What about those of us that work off hour shifts late swing shifts or even graveyard. Does the night then become our day and vice versa . Or are they destined to never experience the dawn of the new day simply because that is when they sleep? Personally I do believe the hour thing is non-consequential.

About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
