A Goddess

through the ether 
she appeared

A Goddess
attended by herons 
the softest light pours
from her eyes
flamed by the embers  
of her heart

loving without knowing
caring without seeing 
a voice for those 
without freedom, 
the answering cry
from the dark,
nobody else hears

cresting Great Rivers, 
Buck-eyed Demigods  
genuflect at her feet

she is worshiped
this Brilliant Goddess

and today 
is her Birthday 

For ~A

    Another alter ego for the legendary Leda? May she read this poem and enjoy her birthday, it is a tribute that makes us feel the heart from which it came. One love

    this is wonderful, I see this Goddess vividly through your imagery. Chose this poem randomly from all those you wrote, and am glad I did! Thank you Jayne for your lovely comment on "Coaxing a write", much appreciated. Coaxing a write is what I was attempting to do with that etheree...anything to get jumpstarted again:)

    Jayne, a wonderful poem, i feel the peace, in her hearts quietness, and her vibrant power that gives her mortality with the essence to be any bodies goddess. Enjoyed the birth-day dedication. Have a nice one,..p.d.
