When You Say My Name- Double Tanka

When you say my name
Stars rush down from the heavens
Dressing me in light
I become goddess divine
Fashioned by love in your voice

When you say my name
The world is too small a place
My soul wanders free
Gliding down the Milky Way
The Queen of the blessed night

    (In my best TV commercial announcer voice): "Saying your name is like eating a York Peppermint Patty...LIKE I'M FLYING HIGH OVER A MOUNTAIN TOP!" Hopefully you know what a York Peppermint Patty (aka one of the greatest candies ever) is. This was a very serene & joyous set of lines. =)
