A LOVE LETTER TO THE DARK GODDESS: new poem

Updated: Mar 17


Your breed of wild

makes winter roses bloom

uncovers enchanted fairytale diadems

beneath lichen-kissed standing stones

Your wild magic

found under the darkling sky

when stars whisper secrets

and splintered bones

breathe a belly deep sigh

as their seeds sprout new life

as the world quietens

hourglass vanishes grains of sand

becoming diamond snowflakes instead

creatures tiptoe

so as to slip through

the threshold to those

mysterious places

found in the fluttering of your lashes

and the echo of your song

Your caliginous form is more exquisite

than sunlight sparkling gold

hauntingly potent witching

a lullaby for lost souls
