(Solstice poem) manitari by Susan Hawthorne

there was a time when
we called the sky
Eos Ushas Aphrodite
Astarte Ishtar Isis
 
of course of course
and those others
Circe Calypso Arianrhod
Medea Semele.
 
all who came from
sea sun and moon
gleaming silver and golden
in their beauty
 
those names those names
a chant
slipped into as the syllables
fall from my tongue
 
manitari ambrosia amŗta
food for immortals
little golden
breast-like
pearl gleaming
your silver stalks
extended in welcome
