Hieros Gamos 2012

She reunited with her lover He has been away from home For millennia She waited alone In the isolated cold and space But she did not want the children To think about their father She as both mother and father The duties and responsibilities Were left to her How could she denied them Angelic faces that recalled Her lover and husband She went to her empty bedchamber Every night with thoughts of him On darken nights None to warm her She had her suitors Men both great and small Passerby and casuals They would hang their members On the walls of her home Like Winter Solstice stockings She would cut them down One by one Hurt by their pride But nonetheless for the wear More than 26,000 years Preceded her longing For her lover Her patience greater than Job Her steadfastness out last the face of the Sphinx But on the fifteen day of December Her lover returned back home From a dangerous odyssey Through comets Quasars and black holes And light years of distant Galaxies She had listened to more than a 1,000 tales End of time stories that heralded his coming But when she saw his divine countenance She laughed uncontrollably He was really home this time and For good She rushed into his arms Then gently caressed his face And kissed his tendered but broken lips Followed by their children Who embraced him around his legs Venus Mars and Mercury Raised their light quotients In accordion As the children lay in bed Sleeping with crescent moon shaped Smiles She entered their bedchamber With him by her side She was now with her lover Her lover was now with her She was now the moon Her lover was now the sun And with this great solar return She fertilized the sun The earth and the moon And with this great celebration story She brought life forth to Saturn Jupiter Uranus and Pluto And the nearby Pleiades constellation And with this galactic marriage And sacred union There was love and joy And with this Hieros Gamos And the triangulation Of the Milky Way’s core There was love and joy The seeding and initiation Of a new and great beginning An event horizon Let us begin
