Shapeshifter! Magician of the Night.
Now we see you—Now we don't
Now we see you again
How astonished we were, deep in the original eon
when humanity was a babe
and we first saw the darkness gobble you up.
then saw you grow back—over and over.
How can this be?
We bow down with awe, reach to you in wonder.
Jezanna, Ixchel, Hina, Menos
We call you by innumerable names
Selene, Anahita, Neith, Mama Quilla
We worship you with terror and praise
Mother of Life and Death Mother of Time
We scratch days on our calendar bones . . .
Lo! We bleed—just so—as you dance you mirror
Steady is your rhythm Magnet Mother
You pull our blood, you pull the Great Waters
capillaries and pools, eddies and plasma.
Dreams and hunches. Madness, Illusion.
Changing Woman you hold, you yield flood and recede
befriend darkness, unveil soft light.
Born to walk your Moonwise path, we trust
