Day 21 — Book Writing/Birthday Month
Okay, okay what is with
All the Rabbits.
I keep seeing them
And this one made me
Laugh out loud
By myself on the sidewalk.
I think I stood there
For 10 minutes
In thinking about it more
One of my favorite paintings
Is a copy of the
Albrecht Dürer’s Young Hare
That my Mom had up in our
Living room growing up.
Which I got to see in person
Last Fall in the Albertina museum
In stunning Vienna.
I have been called the Energizer Bunny
So maybe they’ve been there
All along hiding in plain sight.
I looked up what rabbits
Mean if you are into all
That spirit animal
Symbolic rabbit meanings deal primarily with abundance, comfort, and vulnerability.
Traditionally, rabbits are associated with fertility, sentiment, desire, and procreation.
Rabbit meanings are also closely linked to the seasons,
the changes of Mother Earth, and specifically Springtime.
Tehahonhtané:ken, Rabbit is very sacred to Haudenosaunee and
Kanien’keha:ka culture as one of the tricksters.
She represents creativity and allowing the spirit to express itself.
Celtic myths tells us of the Goddess Eostre (from whom Easter gets its name),
a moon goddess associated with the reborn earth and fertility.
Each full moon Eostre became a Hare, and the Rabbit was her sacred animal.
Rabbit brings the lesson that you can only stand still in fear for so long,
and then there comes a time that you must jump into action and make your move.
I like all that.
After writing this I saw another one today.
So it goes.
Maybe it’s all about forward motion
For me and for you.
I said a hip hop,
The hippie, the hippie,
To the hip, hip hop, and you don’t stop, a rock it
To the bang bang boogie, say, up jump the boogie,
To the rhythm of the boogie, the beat.
Now, what you hear is not a test
I’m rappin’ to the beat,
And me, the groove, and my friends are gonna try to move your feet.
(props to the Sugarhill gang, of course…)
Thank you for giving that little heart below a nudge if you liked this. :)
