    ravensong

    a threshold, she stood,
    feet, bare, body clad,
    in white cotton raiment
    swirling about her ankles,
    as the wind
    sang like a lute,
    upon the still night sky.

    a woman's song
    carried upon the breeze,
    playing with the edges
    of light and dark,
    night and day,
    the precious time,
    between
    dusk and nightfall.

    her ravensong
    burst forth
    from mouth,
    wide open in awe,
    chin upturned,
    jawbone outlined,
    tears precious
    gifted in humble grace,
    against the light
    of the coming
    of fresh eve.

    the lyrics
    danced around her shoulders,
    tickling them just so -
    tussling hair,
    three feet long -
    burnt sienna skied tresses.

    a dreamcatcher
    she was,
    weaving lives
    within lives,
    connecting the dots,
    with her fingertip raised
    pointed at stars,
    moving them
    across Father Sky -
    to meld into one another -

    just
    like
    lovers.

    this is her solace -
    the ancient firmament
    where Gods and Goddesses exist,
    eternal,
    where celestial wars rage,
    she pulls both arms outward
    with heart, full -
    like some majestic holy crucifixion
    and met the maelstrom head on -

    for this
    is
    all
    she
    knows.

    - forward -

    and she jumps
    happily,
    into this rebirth,
    this knowing and unknowing,
    learning and unlearning,
    growing and dying,
    smiling while screaming inside -

    to lead
    not only herself
    but others -
    into the great abyss,
    the infinite chasm,
    the unknown universe,
    the holy grail,
    the swan songs of birds,
    the most precious calling
    to the wild souls of nature,
    beyond all
    that
    is.

    a threshold, she stood
    feet, bare, body clad,
    in white cotton raiment
    swirling about her ankles
    as the wind
    sang like a lute
    upon the still night sky.
