Daily Feng Shui News for July 29th – 'Rain Day'

There’s never any drought of magical rituals inside these daily tips and today’s ‘Rain Day’ will be no different. The Bari people from the Sudan Nile, a people who indeed know something about the need for rain, fill a bell with water and sprinkle it on the earth in order to make it rain. If ‘make it rain’ doesn’t mean throwing fat stacks of cash around, but rather that we need more moisture, then ring this bell before ringing out the clothes hanging on the outside line.

Lugh of the Long Arm (Poem)

“O Lugh of the Long Arm:
You arch over earth
To kiss the corn,
To call it forth,
To see it born.
Your hillslopes flaunt,
breathe golden bees.
From parched fields
Scant dewfall flees.
Your chest is opened
Your heart exposed
Your blood like bronze
And amber flows.
Sun sears your flesh
Asprawl in thistles
Through your wound
Your life’s breath whistles.
You laid you down
In fragrant thyme,
To bleed the sun’s
Entranced decline.
You wrestled harvest,
Corn to capture –
Now we see at sunfall
Your face of rapture.”
