The stilling night
sailing again the black water of Soul’s sea,
guiding light of passion covered in blankets of senseless mist.
The island of body calls us:
above Selene’ song resonates our single breath
below Eros’ caressive touch like breeze across the palm’d face
firmament’ secret laguna of lush delight urging, urging
as we steer our little boat westward
each oar dipping again again into this long night.
Let us praise the channel of our coming home:
the current desire’ ebb and tide
the salted taste, the wavelet’s sensual splash
an honoring of who we are.
Selene, Greek Moon Goddess. Her archetype is the lover. Passion and selfless devotion to another. She also extends to things that make our hearts sing like art, music or nature.
Eros, Greek God of love and passion. Info taken form Goddess-guide.com
