I am lost in days silent retreat, as Helios stands guard of vast raging skies as evening draws, and he bids goodbye. My soul transcends in the way his Amber kisses traverse the colossal void of existence, crimson echoes of light skipping over atoms, submerging Gaia in vivid hues of love, the serenity of eve’s glow, each pocket of colour a prayer whispered into closed palms, screamed to the heavens, spoken into the tangled strands of a love-one’s hair as Helios bids us goodnight till morn and Selene stirs stifling a yawn and we sit momentarily still paused by the beauty of our creator, be him a he, a her, a deity, a God or god a messiah or Angel… In that moment between dusk and twilight we find them in our prayers In return, they give to us a sun and moon a reason to pause us there.
Most mornings I watch as Helios wakes, His flames burn brightest at nights end, at days beginning. A beacon of light, of warmth, of beauty, calling the birds to chirp the leaves to glisten petals to unfurl even the silence sings his blessings and my day begins sprinkled in his essence.
That’s where I want to be. In the center of that flaming heart of warmth. I want the suns embrace, her arms around me holding me tight and blocking out the darkness. I want to turn my back on the world for just a moment, to bathe in her love, for her energy to seep into my life force. I want to feel the flames burning in my blood. I just want the ride to stop whilst I catch up, I want to sleep warm and safe. I want to be in the center of that flaming heart.
Skin wore the essence of summer,
Kissed by waves, embraced by currents
A taste of salt and golden glitter.
Hair a tangled web of curls
Yellow weaves of Destiny
ocean eyes deep and fierce.
Those days were our making,
Druid souls seeped in Poseidons kingdom.
Bare foot stamping our mark upon this world,
etched forever into spirits
energised by Helios,
soothed by Selene
caressed upon those shores
by the oceans ebbing love.
