For Rhiannon


oh beloved Rhiannon
know the rhythm
of my jaded heart

as sapphire skies
dissolve into ebony
and stars dance

and I stare
almost trance-like
at the near-full moon
and she is you

and you
cradle a baby
your baby boy
your son, Rhiannon

Rhiannon, beloved Rhiannon
understand me

hear me
heal me
teach me
love me
save me
I am going crazy

and your humility
humbles me
and your spirit
astounds me

and tonight I pray to you
beautiful goddess
I pray to you
