Our Goddess of the Night

do not forget
the moon
is not a faraway and solitary light
she is Goddess of the Night
she is the longing that you hear in the howl
of wolves
and she is the swell of ocean waves
climbing higher and higher
she is the soul of the moonflower
glowing soft silk and white
she is the alchemy of the womb
in our bodies
of desire

into her round glowing body
shadowy and soft
she draws the entire inkblack sky
and births anew

Our Goddess of the Night
