Be the Taurus
in whom we reside

Be the light shining through the Moon
the Moon being matter raised up into Heaven

Make a gateway to the Light
through all the buttery, flaky, rolled and folded, layered puff pastry

Because the Sky is yours
you can choose the fillings

Bring some air into those vast inner spaces
breeze like a wild animal travelling through the Soul

Breath the Spirit
Become the Dome!
