Magpies by 5Happy5 Magpies by 5Happy5
This is a beautiful little old poem about Magpies. I love old sayings and superstitions, here (in the Uk) it's bad luck to see only one Magpie. This is because of what the Magpies symbolize in this poem. It's about the path to enlightenment.
One for Sorrow- the path we walk alone, the hermit.
Two for Joy- the path of the lovers
Three for a Girl- the feminine aspect of energy
Four for a Boy- the male aspect of energy
Five for Silver- Based on the pracitice of Alcemy, where you turn things into silver. This could be an energetic practice, rather than physical
Six for Gold- same as above but with gold.
Seven for a Secret Never to be Told- the ultimate teachings of enlightenment are such that you are unable to explain what you've learnt to anyone, as our simple words are too small to explain it.

This has been done with black pen and coloured pencils.

Thanks to :iconphalalcrocorax: for his wonderful Rainbow Magpie photo's.
