Ouroboros (Uroborus)

Ouroboros (Uroborus) (Photo credit: Leo Reynolds)

I am weary of the alpha
So long ago
Such beginnings are forever
Build too slow

I am waiting as omega
At the end
And death and all his retinue
Are my friends

I complete this like a snake now
Swallowing my tail
All the power and the mystery
I’d curtail

I am weary of the alpha
Beating heart
Knowing after the omega
I once more start
Even though I’d rather stop now
Once more start….

    Beautifully represented Helen. Note the symbology of the Celtic knot exemplifying the same principle for us Irish guys. Greatly enjoyed and appreciated.
