Haiku Collection: Drawing Down the Moon

by B. T. Newberg

Age Group: Adult



A lonely raindrop
Soft like a knock at the door
Calls me to look up

She is the sky-moon
And the watery eye-moon
Reflecting in me

Body to body
A shaft of adoration
Touches moon to moon

Her cheeks flush the clouds
Her bosom heaves the tides
Waxing in passion

She smells like wet earth
And tastes like the sap of trees
Wet as mist Her touch

Sublime in beauty
Supreme in glory, She says
"Do not bow to Me"

Though pock-marked and scarred
Somehow I'm found Her worthy
"I am yours, " She says

Like a darkened cave
She opens and urges me
To go inside Her

How can it be true?
Even in human smallness
I am the Goddess

This whole Earth is She
And this body, and this life
Right here we are One

Her body is mine
My body Hers, and this Earth...
God intertwining

She is Creation
Apart from Her is nothing
From Her womb flows all

The full moon peaked
Radiant with afterglow
Soft wanes Her motion

I feel Her tremble
As a lonely raindrop runs
Trembling down Her cheek

I hear in the wind
And see in the burdened clouds
God also suffers

One are we in joy
And also in suffering
For love of this world

Pain and suffering
Come into the world alike
With the joy of love

How long must we hurt?
"As long as you live, " She says
"But I will hold you"

Under a blanket
Of clouds, dream-like warm I fade
Overcome by sleep




Author's Notes: copyright 2004

As a Naturalistic Pagan, I believe in evidence. There is no evidence that deities and magic are "real" in the most literal sense, but they may yet be moving and powerful. These poems are a tribute to the inspiration of Pagan ways.

For more information on naturalism, see HumanisticPaganism.com.
