The Prediction - Part2

From there it is no place for the meek because we trade in those paddles for rotor blades and we will paddle in circles in the rotary wing Tarhe helicopter to the continental divide, the “backbone” of North America. Spineless or meek people will not go here because they lack backbone. The meek won't fly either.
But before we take off, the iron and architect “it” are offloaded from the train to assemble the six pieces of “it” coincidentally represented by the poem’s six stanzas.
“The end is ever drawing nigh” has several meanings. The rotor blades circle counter clockwise or “nigh” representing “ever” and those who are about to die or know someone who has died, will ever go there to pray or pay their last respects.
Tarhe is a famous Indian chief from the Porcupine tribe who lost the use of his right arm at the Battle of Fallen Timbers, which is now known as Toledo, thus he draws nigh or is left handed. Tarhe was a peaceful leader and he is both “Brave and in the wood.”
“Just heavy loads and water high,” describes the Tarhe helicopter for it is a Vietnam era helicopter converted to the S-64 Skycrane whose purpose is to carry heavy loads of water and release that water load onto forest (or should I say) “Forrest Fires.”
“When you have been wise and found the blaze.” The blaze is the sun and thus the reason for the past tense use of “found,” since one finds the sun every day. Found is also short for foundry, because that is where the architect Laurien Eugene Riehl and Leroy Lee built “it” out of iron. Owls are wise and are known for their ability to look 180 degrees or the opposite direction as hinted by the poems opposite words “warm/cold” and “new/old,” thus one has to turn around and look with your back to the sun and look at the shadow “it” cast and look down very quickly at a precise date and time.
“Buttary scant with marvel gaze” the oddest descriptive line in the poem. But (or Butte, Mt where “it” resides) Tarhe (sound like tarry) helicopter from the Air National Guard in Nevada assembled “it” and damaged the right arm (draw nigh) in the process. With marvel or “Marvell” which is a type of sundial which distinctly uses an arrow as the pointer. “Gaze” is to look at the sun’s shadow. The sun is a star and gaze is synonymous with “star gazing.” The poems instruction - so why is “it” that “eye” must go, also tells the seeker to use “it” as an obelisk because the “eye” is the sun. The Egyptians often referred to the sun as the "eye"s of particular gods. The poem’s “I’ve done it tired” confirms this as the tire or “wheel” is direction to treat “it” like a medicine wheel. Medicine wheels generally tells us when is the first day of Spring.
“I have done it weak” or “week” hints to a day on the calendar. At precisely 2:42 (too far to) pm solar time on the first day of Spring or Fall (equinox) the shadow of “it” will precisely mark the spot on a 42 degree angle (the same angle as a rainbow - Fenn’s rainbow) where the treasure is buried. Spring was derived at the beginning of the poem (Warm Springs) but we now look at it differently: not a water spring but the season Spring and we do in fact look at it as if for the first time as the seeker has come full circle or ever drawing nigh. According to the Book of Days, the first day of Spring occurs on day 79 or 80, which is coincidentally the age Forrest claimed to have hidden the treasure.
But what is “it,” this obelisk, that casts this shadow? We have yet to answer “take the chest and go in peace.” “It” is “peace.” “It” is Our Lady of Peace or Our Lady of the Rockies, a 90 foot dollerd or Madonna, representing the Virgin Mary that is perched precisely on the continental divide at “Saddle Rock.” Saddle is another word for “in the wood,” overlooking Butte, Mt. Our Lady of the Rockies or “It” is a non-denominational tribute to all women of the world, especially mothers and it is Fenn’s special rainbow. A tribute to Mr. Fenn’s mother, wife and two daughters – nothing else can be more special than them?
The final hint of “Rich” is an old Rich, Richard Weatherill, Mr. Fenn misspelled his name incorrectly in his memoir, and since he “can keep my secret where” or “wear,” indicated the finder of those 22 beads in his bracelet is important. One of the registered owners of Our Lady’s land is Jean Withers. Sounds very similar to weather as in Weatherill and Jane Withers. Jane is Josephine the plumber, infamous for the comet cleanser jingle - “Comet tastes like gasoline” which is almost exactly like Fenn’s quote, “porcupines taste like kerosene.”
Mark your calander for Sept 23 and watch the fun! Happy birthday Mr. Fenn!
