“A coronal loop is magnetic flux fixed at both ends, threading through the solar body, protruding into the solar atmosphere. They are ideal structures to observe when trying to understand the transfer of energy from the solar body, through the transition region and into the corona.” ~Wikipedia

And now, the poem: CORONAL LOOPS
In shoes of fire
the Sun does flips—
arcs of triumph,
Sport with magnets?
The fact that light
plays with matter
puts science first—
top of ladder.
So run and rise
to curve and loop
and keep the heat
of conscious group.
and burn fractions.
The soul that hurts
with silent pain
will swirl and loop
and rise to rain.

That hope exists
where heart is felt
opens the ways

NOTE: The Adverse Childhood Experiences study done by Vincent J. Felitti, M.D. and Robert Anda, M.D. is something I believe to be worthy of a Nobel Prize for its impact on the potential of humans to understand suffering and healing. In my way, I know I will spend the rest of my life making this study known and working (as well as playing) to watch those who’ve experienced childhood trauma heal by addressing the wound, allowing the scab and honoring the scar while rising to live lives of more joy and happiness. http://www.acestudy.org. Thank you for reading, thank you for believing in a better world.
A scar in the morning sun. 4-11-15.
Photo is of the scar on my right knee…sorry if it is TMVI (too much visual information).
Got Your ACE Score?
There is also a Resiliency List with a score on this blog post.
Minnesota high school screens students for ACEs to develop trauma-informed education. By Jane Ellen Stevens.
I learned about the ACE study in 2010 and felt it was a major key that could unlock some of the ills common in all societies across the world.
For more information: http://www.cdc.gov/violenceprevention/acestudy/
Thanks to Vincent J. Felitti, M.D. and Robert Anda, M.D. for their groundbreaking work on the study. Thanks to Jane Stevens for this article.
Now, it is time to come up with solutions for healing the effects of ACEs. There are many modalities for healing–the important thing is to find one that fits each individual. Some people are comfortable with psychotherapy, some prefer reiki, the Emotion Code protocol developed by Bradley Nelson, D.O. is one that seems to work well and “stick.”
When trauma is experienced during childhood, the scars are carried for a lifetime. The “charge” of the trauma can be neutralized so that the person doesn’t have to keep cycling it, but the way to such “neutralization” must be found on a case-by-case basis.
I wish for healing…on the part of all humans in the world.
Dark skies in spring
doth hearts unwind
with tiny keys
in locks of mind.
Abed we lie
beg dreams to keep
in slippered truth
of conscious deep.
A clock, a buzz
we see the moon
does moon see we?
shades of bloodlight
gives a morning
the end to night.
NOTE: I found this song to accompany the poem (with gratitude to Jim Brickman): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2FC8-5rjsqA
Thank you to my friend S. for sharing the experience of this eclipse with me from your geographic position on this planet of ours. When we witness celestial events together apart, something aligns and all is well.
Wound dehiscence/was a factor/on the cross of/life retractor.
Wailing, weeping/human witness/otherworldly/darkened litness.
Stress the body/roll out the soul/transition to/universe hole.
Once ascended/get the masters/to overrule/false disasters!
NOTE: I have been waiting for a chance to use the word “dehiscence” in a poem. It is a noun that lives in the field of biology. It means the bursting open of an organ in order to release contents, or, after a surgery, it means that the wound has burst open. If this happens a surgeon is likely to shorten the word to a slang term that sounds like “dehiss.”
To those who celebrate Easter, I wish happiness in 2015 in order to cover the dehiss that may have occurred all those many years ago on that symbol of resistance, the cross. To those who stay thoughtful at Easter–due to the history–I say “thank you.” To children who search for eggs as a rite of spring, I say, “keep searching” because it is a very good exercise!
