Hail Kali

by PanSpiritus

Age Group: Adult

Born above the void, high swinging
The sword of the Mother cleaved through the mass
Golden ages were spent,
Millions of years had gone sailing
Low she sank, footprint in the black flames of eternity
Her hard ankle, like a rock, did not melt
She slew the demons, one by one
In the form of a lion she devoured the masses
And sprung from her own forehead low
Bearing the sign of the third eye,
The open eye toward the gloom

I am what I am because of this
Because I cried like a baby,
And laid low like a corpse
Before the offender, KALI, our Mother
The Void which brings being
She bore the likeness of
The dark from which all springs
In her face was the darkness of darkness
In her eyes were glittering swords,
The potential of sudden death in the cave

I horripilated
She mounted the dead about me
Stewed milk from her own blood
Fed by the fungi that fed from the corpses
Drunk from Soma, wonderful horror
Her eyes swirling with grief
Tongue flaring toward full expression
Arms outstretched like
Spider or scorpion,
She wailed and gave birth to Herself

I cried in drunken intoxication
With Kali, the mother of darkness,
Who held a head akin to my own,
Kali, the mother who vanquishes demons,
Who lifts the night, being born in it,
Cutting off its head, ingesting its seed,
Takes on its form, wonderful and harrowing,
Alluring and threatening
The only origin we can imagine

We are inside of our nightmare
And she inside of us
We are never alone for
As terrible as life can be
The nightmare is lucid, the dream is on the path
Toward golden ruin, the marriage of heaven and hell
It bears a child, whose name is Wonderful
Whose mother is us,
Swirling with the four arms of the winds
Bestowing boons upon the faithful
Bringing down the devils of deceit
Her weapons are tools of mercy
Her Hell is a secret Heaven
Her scourge is the kiss of reason

What is terrible will bring what is wonderful
The dark mother, the necessary child
Will come out of the night
So we have nothing to fear
The dark sleep of the void
Could have threatened us BUT
Its teeth were of a saint, a goddess,
She took the form of your mother,
She took the form of a void
JAI KALI, Queen of wisdom
Titan of Saturn, Mother of Time
Whose is the Void that is our Mother,
Whose age rules ages... Whose darkness allows existence...
