NaPoMo Day 16

high priestess

(ii the high priestess)
tonight on my way home a doe crossed my path i looked up into the sky & clearly saw the features of your face

your beauty overwhelmed me

lady artemis! ever virgin! ever autonomous!

you dance across the sky like you chase the deer with your maidens & your hounds

goddess of tomboys! goddess of she-wisdom & moon magic! goddess of the hunt & goddess of healing!

i call to you

oh mother moon! mountain mother! oh queen of the oh so starry night!

i long to immerse myself in your lustrous lunar light

& strip away everything revealing
