A Prayer to the Goddess of Change
by Rhiannon Keneally
Age Group: Adult
While she sweeps
With silken wings,
I wrap in the darkening deep,
Twirling soft threads of thought
Far in the recesses of sleep
Cocoon me in gossamer threads
Of new visions and dreams
Change my paths I dare to tread,
Holding me soft as I delve
From the living to the dead
And silences kept
All come forth from old,
Then drag me silently
To the darkened cold
They strip my bones,
Eat my flesh,
Leaving me prone
(Solve: melt and dissolve down)
Nothing to call my own
Mean ghost, only a shade
Left to chew on
They wrought with blade
(Et coagula: rise and rise again)
All that was left made
To sew anew
The pieces tattered and frayed
Dream, only dream
Long silver strands,
In tighter seams
Return your soul
Not mine to take
Return to the living
Open your eyes, awake!
Awaken, sleeping one
Surround yourself in the light
The shadows of doubt are done
Bathe in its aura
Beneath the newly risen sun
Author's Notes: Solve, from the Latin. Et Coagula, also from Latin. Dissolve, and reform or coagulate. Usually seen and used in Chemistry or Alchemy.
