The Witching Hour

My cauldron sings
of love and wonder
brewing magic potions
trickling down my thigh
under the full moon
of my hearts desire

My black cat nuzzles
exquisite lace
beneath ample skirts
that swish with grace
as I dance

The full moon glistens
and bathes her light
robes heaving breasts
sharing candle light
with my smile

A blood red rose
pricks his fingertip
I take his hand
raise it to my lips
and smear them red

My teeth glint pearl
as I move near
I lean in close
and bite his ear


The silver glint
of my Athame
catches moon and candle
light and flame
as it cuts the air
in a five point star

I take his hand and pull him down
we kneel on earth
then sink to ground
our tap roots cut
the Mothers crust

He licks his blood
from my parted lips
he unsheathes his staff
I raise my hips
as my nails extend
to rake his back

Leaves crumple
beneath our weight
we breathe damp earth
blood, sweat…
hot breath and musk
encloud us

His eyes they shine
looking into mine
trying to capture my very soul
as I wind my spell
around his heart

Tonight he is mine
and mine alone
he thinks he’ll own me
but he’s so wrong
a hungry Wizard
is no match
for my Witchy spine

My cauldron drips
with the potion of love
my black cat purrs
the full moon song
as I leave him

with blood on his lips
and lust in his heart

Artist's Description

in every woman’s DNA lives the memory of the witch burnings, where thousands upon thousands of women were burnt at the stake for being midwives, and herbalists, lovers and mothers and land owners.

we bleed by the light of the moon…we are all witches at heart…
