Solstice Ritual

Stain your wish in crimson ink Light a candle bathed in red Watch it burn, don’t blink When the sun fades and stars wink The moon shines overhead Stain your wish in crimson ink The night is long and shadows slink Let the flame banish doubt and dread Watch it burn, don’t blink Pour yourself a fiery drink Pen the desire in your head Stain your wish in crimson ink Light your paper and watch it shrink Declare what you have left unsaid Watch it burn, don’t blink Wait for dawn to turn the sky pink The sun emerging from a cloudy bed Stain your wish in crimson ink Watch it burn, don’t blink

Meta Poem 1

I want my words to be curls of smoke that linger a cold brush of icy fingers   I want my words to be bones clinking in the night claws scratching for a fight   I want my words to be a raven’s cry in the air a creak from an old stair   I want my words to be the depths of oceans deep the shadows in your sleep   I want my words to be the blood that boils the floods that roil   the heat of flames unspoken shames   shards of ice heavy price   a mark the dark
