Taliesin: A Poem for the Wind


Taliesin: A Poem for the Wind

I decided to post this without awareness of its origin.
I thought it might be secular, or Sufi, or Taoist.
It is Shamanic!
Its original language was welsh

Oh, nice!

Tell me, what do you think of riddles? And are you familiar with "Thunder: Perfect Mind"?

Thunder, Perfect Mind
Wow!
If that is the riddle, i don't have a clue
(which must mean i know exactly what is being said)
But Wow/

Gospel of Thomas is my sole exposure to Nag Hammadi, but i will correct that.

Re: Thunder, Perfect Mind
Well, Bentley Layton said that it was a riddle, with the answer Eve, and I think he's right.

Reflecting on it from my angles, I've come to think about riddles as interactive text, and really good riddles as leading one to conceive the familiar in new ways.

I don't like everything in the Nag Hammadi library*, but it's a fascinating, eclectic-to-me collection.

*Which is to say that I think Irenaeus was right about some of it.
