Right this instant I'm grateful for life, just the bare fact of it, bitter or sweet.|
Turn your head and you will see me
In the honeysuckle vine.
Turn your heart and you will know me
In the chalice and the wine.
Turn your steps and you will meet me
In the factory and the mine.
Turn your fate and you will touch me:
Take my path and I'll take thine.
There is an amazing book that is one of my favorites to this day. It is call Return of the Goddess by Elizabeth Cunningham. One of my favorite characters is Fergus. I think you may be a younger version of him, or you may grow up to be him, one day.
This is a complement, a huge, Feri complement. If you ever get the chance, I think you'd enjoy the story.
PS. YOU ROCK. YOU FUCKIN'ROCK!
Thanks -- I ordered a second-hand copy.
PS. Thanks for the PS.!
Did you write this? It leaves me breathless. It reminds me of Robert Louis Stephenson and John Donne, contemporary and eternal. What a good heart you must have.
Thank you for posting this lovely offering.

Re: Poem about true love
Thank you! For the feedback, and for reminding me of this poem. What an appropriate time for to be reminded -- we're doing Psyche and Eros this year at Witchcamp
. I did write it, and remember struggling with the words, but it's been long enough that I'm reading it fresh.Edited at 2012-05-16 03:47 am (UTC)
