The mysteries of the universe are reduced to the profound influence of the planets' aspects on solar activity, and then to life on earth. This has actually been demonstrated scientifically in a book by J. H. Nelson, a shortwave radio propagation analyst.

it was there all along

in the thick of the text

or so thought the sages and mystics

who vexed

crescents and crosses

secret handshakes

talismans, tokens

magnificent fakes

Hermes the wise one

the bony robed sage

could never have lived

to his putative age

a creature of myth with his emerald plate

clutched to his breast, but the hour was late

smaragdine enigmas, pronouncements, commands

its father the Sun was in weak mortal hands

alchemical labors, philosophers’ works

alembics, retorts, a stewpot of quirks

the hot athanor of desire for gold

was helpless anent what the planets foretold

the Chaldees had gauged from their ziggurat towers

a sacred geometry, sequence of hours

a heavenly logic of stunning design

by virtue of what but a few might divine

Sun, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn

arrayed in an often inscrutable pattern

their influence felt by the faraway one

not the earth as suspected, but life-bearing Sun

whose heartbeat is shaped to the will of the spheres

and so too our fate as we sift through the years

Hermes’ green tablet indeed was correct

the operatione Solis as inscribed was perfect
