#15 - Viracocha

It is said Viracocha created the universe, sun, moon, and stars, time and civilization itself. He was worshipped as god of the sun and of storms and was represented as wearing the sun for a crown, with thunderbolts in his hands, with tears descending from his eyes as rain. Viracocha may be assimilated to Saturn, the "old god", who the planet Saturn and the day of the week Saturday are both named after.  


Thunderbolts in your hands, you are juggling 
fire, ideas, responsibilities. 
It’s so hard seeing people struggling. 
Broken lightbulb pieces in your hands, please 

can we allow ourselves to say thank-you 
to the people juggling thunderbolts, 
the people we need to say well done to. 
Let’s try not to focus on all our faults. 

Deep breaths. Positive thoughts. Optimism. 
We should create a new day of the week 
between Saturday and Sunday; escape 
while we get back to a healthy rhythm. 
That stutter every time you try to speak. 
You’ve always been scared of making mistakes.
