Call of the Goddess

I hear her calling, her voice like a siren’s song. I know I am not the only one, a lot of women hear her…some men do too! She’s calling us back to her, asking us to remember. Remember what it feels like to dance with the wind, sleep under the stars, be kissed by the sun. She’s asking us to connect back with the spirits of trees and the streams. to dangle our bare feet into the lakes, letting the minnows nibble our toes until we dive into the deep. She’s calling for us to leave this sterile cold society we have created, this safe and orderly existence that knows not the pleasure of plucking a warm, ripe plum from the tree and immediately biting into its richness letting its flavor consume you even as you consume it. This sad place in which we have become so worried about having great sex that we have forgotten how to make great love. Yes, she is calling us to lay our lovers down upon the warm soft moss until we are so lost in each others embrace that we have nothing left to lose. She is calling us to bare our souls and open our hearts to her passions. But that kind of fearless passion terrifies us and so we pretend we don’t hear her but she calls. She will continue to call until one, some, all of us answer and run headlong into her arms forever changed

The Gifts

And he asked her, ” How may I win your heart? Shall I adorn you, my vision, with diamonds and pearls? Shall I cover your sun-kissed shoulders with soft and vibrant silks? Shall I build you a mansion of gilded gold? Tell me, my angel, how do I capture your body and soul?” Because he asked with  such earnest endeavor, the secrets of her soul, the longings of her heart, she shared. ” soft, warm kisses upon my lips to wake me from my slumber, shining eyes of wonder-filled diving into my own, walks along the rivers edge my lover by my side. Provide these things and these as well to open up my doors. Whispered nothings upon my breasts in fields of sunlit gold, share your dreams, your hopes , your fears upon my shoulders bared. In wonder and delight, stargaze with me at night and by the fires glow share with me your life.What need have I of mansions gold, make a lair in the forest  green for therein is my home. Diamonds and pearls cannot fulfill the longing of my soul your words are needed there.The finest silks upon my skin cannot compete to the sweetness of your kiss. This is how you win my heart, these should be your gifts.”
