Today I discard the prompt from NaPoWriMo because these images came so strongly. Enjoy!
Lady of Azurite Calls the Shaman
Waves of azurite crash unto shore,
recede leaving seaweed and lace.
Anubis takes my hand.
I follow in a trance
up the mountain through deep foliage,
banana trees, birds of paradise,
hibiscus, riotous tropical abundance.
We stand at the top of a cliff.
I turn east, south, west, north
to see below a miniature landscape.
This is perspective, Anubis says.
Selene shimmers down a slice of light
and transports me to her realm.
We sit on the last visible crescent
of a total lunar eclipse.
She nods at earth spinning
light and dark. This is perspective.
Sothis glides to my side, takes
my hand and we ride on a broom,
reminding me she has a sense
of humor. We surpass the speed
of light and land on Sirius. I survey
the universe in wonder.
This is perspective, she says.
On the wings of Isis, we circle
the earth on her rainbow wings.
Day and night appear and disappear.
We land again as the waves
flow in and out. This
Is perspective, she says.
I pick up a seashell.
