Hieros Gamos 2012: April National Poetry Month

Hieros Gamos 2012
By Mel Brake

She reunited with her lover
He has been away from home
For millennia

She waited alone
In the isolated cold and space
But she did not want the children
To think about their father

She as both mother and father
The duties and responsibilities
Were left to her
How could she denied them
Angelic faces that recalled
Her lover and husband

She went to her empty bedchamber
Every night with thoughts of him
On darken nights
None to warm her

She had her suitors
Men both great and small
Passerby and casuals
They would hang their members
On the walls of her home
Like Winter Solstice stockings

She would cut them down
One by one
Hurt by their pride
But nonetheless for the wear

More than 26,000 years
Preceded her longing
For her lover
Her patience greater than Job
Her steadfastness out last the face of the Sphinx

But on the fifteen day of December
Her lover returned back home
From a dangerous odyssey
Through comets
Quasars and black holes
And light years of distant
Galaxies

She had listened to more than a 1,000 tales
End of time stories that heralded his coming

But when she saw his divine countenance
She laughed uncontrollably
He was really home this time and
For good

She rushed into his arms
Then gently caressed his face
And kissed his tendered but broken lips

Followed by their children
Who embraced him around his legs

Venus Mars and Mercury
Raised their light quotients
In accordion

As the children lay in bed
Sleeping with crescent moon shaped
Smiles

She entered their bedchamber
With him by her side

She was now with her lover
Her lover was now with her

She was now the moon
Her lover was now the sun

And with this great solar return
She fertilized the sun
The earth and the moon

And with this great celebration story
She brought life forth to
Saturn
Jupiter
Uranus and Pluto
And the nearby Pleiades constellation

And with this galactic marriage
And sacred union
There was love and joy

And with this Hieros Gamos
And the triangulation
Of the Milky Way’s core

There was love and joy
The seeding and initiation
Of a new and great beginning
An event horizon
Let us begin

    Reblogged this on melbrake and commented:

    We live in the worst of times and we live in the best of times. Since 2012, the Earth as been in a five year transition period of time and that period ends in 2017.

    “At the end of 2017, the planet undergoes a precise measurement of the quantum field, which directly impacts the future evolution timelines for all of the inhabitants when they move through the Consciousness Corridor. Effectively, the earth body will be anchored into new time and space vectors in the future dimension, that is located within the 5D frequency band timelines. This shift in location will directly impact the collective consciousness agreement, although many of the population will be unaware consciously, that this major shift has occurred.” Lisa Renee
