Future Telling by a poetic spirit on Oquaga Lake

Future Telling as per the Oquaga Spirit

Future Telling as per the Oquaga Spirit. Common methods used for fortune telling in Europe and the Americas include astromancyhorary astrologypendulum reading, spirit board reading, tasseography (reading tea leaves in a cup), cartomancy (fortune telling with cards), tarot readingcrystallomancy (reading of a crystal sphere), and chiromancy (palmistry, reading of the palms). The last three have traditional associations in the popular mind with the Roma and Sinti people (often called “gypsies”).

However, current theories of leading physicists see reality as a connection or continuum of space-time. Thus, as the present is visible, so are the past and the future. I was fortunate enough to spend 15 summer seasons on Oquaga Lake. My official title was “the house pianist” at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House. One of my duties was playing the piano on “Scott’s Showboat of Song.” It daily circled Oquaga Lake at 4:30 pm. Once in a while we did a nighttime cruise. Everyone was happy and joyful. Most sensed a spiritual presence on the lake.  For me, it spoke in poetry as a hiked around the lake in the early morning hours. Below is one of the spirit’s poems. It is entitled “Future Fog.” An illustrated book of her poetry is called: The Oquaga Spirit Speaks.” It is available as a product on DSOworks.com

Future Telling and the Oquaga Spirit
Spiritual presence radiates forth from this mountain top, spring fed lake. Its beauty is almost incredible.

Future Telling in the Poem “Future Fog” in the Oquaga Spirit Speaks

We see the future in a fog                   But though we cannot see through,
And know not what it brings.            We still may smell and hear.
It’s milky, dense and thick                   By keeping all senses sharp
And hides most everything.                We see ahead the year.
We do not know tomorrow,                For sound penetrates the fog.
If it bring joy or sorrow                        And smell drifts through the haze.
Or if it just be plain                                 By keeping all senses sharp,
Like slow and steady rain.                    We see ahead the days.
We know not how things shape up
Until the fog has lifted.
But then the future is the present,
As the sands of time have shifted.

The future is hidden by “fog.” So are two birds in this masterful picture.
