Cup of Gold
by Kiernan Antares
11″ x 16″ Acrylic
on Gallery Wood Panel
Drawing an awakened sun force upward through the human heart sparks a succulent Cup of Gold within the soul, expanding your vision of the unseen and land of the hidden realms where the ’shining ones’ reside. These magical beings direct, build, weave and sustain all natural forces on the planets and solar systems. They radiate iridescent light, colour and energy as evident in the soft glowing luminous rays active in this painting.
Cup of Gold—ranging in colours from soft yellow to deep orange, soft pink to magenta, soft to deep violet, light to deep turquoise, and made iridescent with soft clouds of white and touches of gold—speak to a purity coming to greet you today. In the center, supporting this cup, resides a poppy flower which carries within it the majesty of sunlight. When you draw this powerful life force up into and through your heart you are rewarded with healing wonders of the natural world. The ‘shining ones’ are paying their respect to you today. The Cup of Gold offers you the treasure of warmth and nurturing sunlight within.
Leave the familiar for a while.
Let your senses and bodies stretch out
Like a welcomed season
Onto the meadow and shores and hills.
Open up to the Roof.
Make a new watermark on your excitement
Like a blooming night flower,
Bestow your vital fragrance of happiness
Upon our intimate assembly.
Change rooms in your mind for a day.
All the hemispheres in existence
Lie beside an equator
In your heart.
In your thousand other forms
As you mount the hidden tide and travel
All the hemispheres in heaven
Are sitting around a fire
While stitching themselves together
Into the Great Circle inside of
