Gold luminescent as the sun.
The egyptian god “Ra”.
Silver luminescent as the moon.
Gold of fire, of lions, of greed, of allure. What can compel people in ways beyond nature.
The first money. Limited in supply creating differentials of power. Yet we cannot eat not use as medicine.
And yet there is magical allure about gold even one who knows not the mythology can understand.
Hammered into foil and adorned on walls, pots, and sacred books.
Of frankinscence, myrr and spices. Of jewels and mystery.
Born in space we ponder the journey it’s been on.
And my body is golden. My mind spirit of intention as gold. You have the same value as me and the trees.
