goddess

and she opened her arms

upon a cosmic wave she released the beats of an undying heart

the ancients answered, flooding the seas with souls

life eternal from the chalice we sipped

soaking upon her soil, where blooms fused with newborn breaths

to the call of the wild we danced, we wed

as the cedars praised and anointed us with eyes to see, to be

                      to rise, to fall

to sing, to cry

                                         to laugh, to love

to whisper, to scream

                                             to learn, to teach

to share, to know

as she all the while sat in wait for us to return to her gates

feeding unto her the gifts we learned to share unto thee, an allegiance of her love an undying rite

knowing passage comes not to all that shan’t sit beneath the shade hearing the trees

yet still giving, in hopes one day we’d all see

before the bell tolled.
