My messenger of painted air
has alchemised a signet key
that opened up the spiral stair
upon this golden dawn.
Thus captured upon inner eyes
The sun’s mandala brings surprise
– of recognition to the child
Kaleidoscopic magic’s light
that activates the 3rd eye’s sight
and raises love to hold entranced
our lovers sense – in paradise we danced.
The glowing power of truth and light,
expressions of the Goddess – might
seduce those held in fear of death, anticipating life’s last breath.
Exhale and breathe her sensual form
that balances both sun and moon
in velvet hues that capture you
embraced and warmed, in swoon.
Her flames are lithe!
With tendrils reaching deep inside – they coil, entwine;
and supplicate the holy wine
you proffer her…
Through honey’d gauze, her light afire
I witness, open-eyed the pyre,
but earn the wisdom she inspires
to ease my soul.
