Morning Musings!

It is the dream of every poem to be a myth.   Galway Kinnell

I read this and think of King Arthur and Sir Lancelot and the knights of the Round Table.  I check out the Round Table to find out if it was made of wood or stone, and learn that St. Luke recorded that Christ and the Apostles sat at a circular table during the Last Supper.  I never knew that.  It seems that before that, Celtic warriors, also, sat at round tables.  The round table sets up a seating arrangement of equality, and also, symbolizes the roundness of the earth, and so, I wonder how they knew.  Did they figure it out by watching boats sail away and the setting of the sun?   When did the world become flat, and why?  Are we in a continual process of leavening and unleavening our knowledge, like bread?  Is there less reason than I thought to fear what I perceive as a current rising ignorance.?  Is it only  breath, soothing itself, in a balance of moving, in and out.

A circular table symbolizes equality.  Is that completely possible among we humans?  Do we still yearn for the days of the cave, the clan with  a leader, a shaman, a healer, and hunters that followed the wisdom of age?

I don’t know.  I am searching with a probe, a torch on fire,  to find the drawings carved on the walls of the cave, to reveal the origin of my myth, so I can untangle it and share it, like a meal, with you.
