TWO CIRCLES OF SOULS

***

Two circles of souls

The circles fit together

And they interact

***

NOTE: The second circle of souls interacts with the first group of souls, matching motion with motion and song with song. The two groups fit together. They are like two rainbows — the two rainbows that appear when the goddess Juno calls Iris to appear to her. One rainbow indicates that Iris is the messenger of the gods; the other rainbow indicates Iris’ double splendor when she attends to the queen of the gods. Wisdom is doubly splendid.
