Mother Moon


Oh Mother Moon, who guides this inner world,

you are my secret dream, my hidden inmost need

obscured by the outer facade

that keeps me shrouded in deception. 

You are the gatekeeper

of the nethermost regions of my soul.


Internal sanctums of consciousness,

Oh Luna, are your garden for my inner child. 

Vulnerable, exposed, 

when your luminous light shines upon me

I am naked,

conflicted with my exoteric nature. 


Oh Selene, beautiful winged goddess!

You ride upon the intuitive waters

of my psyche,

expanding my resilience on golden wing,

clipped, I  am mercurial, 

quicksilver, changing from moment to moment.


Sentimental fool, you take me for,

immersing me in a pool of nostalgia

only to rebirth the past,

again and again.

You slumber in the dark abyss

of my imagination, laying in wait

to reveal my aesthetic beauty. 


Mother Moon, arcane enchantress,

animating the rhythmic 

ebb and flow of all life,

waxing maiden, waning crone,

wandering through my clandestine realms,

bending me to my knees, your lesson

in wholeness unravels me.

You whisper of ‘new beginnings’, forcing 

me to bury old wounds in the

graveyard of my heart, where you stand

as guardian of my authentic Self.
