Spirit Visitation: Past with Present

our temple
now with gray hair
but still a berth of reverence

her world
even grayer
a cloak of more formal attire
but for hand-me-downs
in yens for power and blood

will another millennium
amend this bearing
or this conversation stay?

until then…

Enchantress of Water

to be Yesterday’s guests
on all fours
ascending the days of Spring
and her shade
of Jaguar and company

to share Nature’s pipe
with the glyphs of gladiators’ rules
the calculator of Heaven
the battalion of pillars in their allegiance to Rain
the spirits enslav’d by the great pool

all swaddl’d by Land’s mane
with Today’s bloodkin

Via Appia Antica

                                         since Antiquity,
                                         Today,  maybe Tomorrow,
                                         all roads still lead here

Themis

some might see
should want to see
a Yesterday
as She did today

a pebble lighting
upon a sleeping pond

a ripple wading
to the shores
of reason
of marvelment
of sav’d optimism

songs of fair skies
of fresh faces of love
for her own Tomorrow
