The Symbol of the Turtle...



The Symbol of the Turtle
 is Maçedonia...
Macadam'ïa...Maya
Maçedame'ian ...Hazelnut
The legumbres, fruits...noix..

Nút, Nuit, is the KNight
The KNight of Egypt
Darke as Nubia
Light as the Coin
Called Tao...
(Arabian KNights..a tune)

Mystery is Her Naime
Her Coloeurs aRe in Her Hair
My Hair My Heir
And the Clothes I wear...

The Forever always Wais
'AiWaisz'...so the Start
Is an 'End' to blend
The River Ribbon of Eternity
Fresh Carbon in a
           Diamond::
a Malt. a Ring.  a Cola Soda

Peace My Symbol is the Turtle
Tao Ki Turtle
49th day of the Rabbit Year (Yarn)
