Dark of the Moon Goddess

She has big legs
is tall and dark
with flashing
diamond eyes

When she opens her mouth
red flowers bloom, green leaves
frame her with their
rain-soaked fragrance

Her skin is made
from music sewn together
from the passion
of a summer afternoon

Her soprano scream
floats rippling down
the mountain stream
of primordial wisdom

I close my eyes
and feel her singing
in my blood
kaleidoscope colors

She is my secret
soul sister
the Goddess
of invisible women.

Thank you, Pepe. She literally stood over me while I was writing, daring me to describe Her.
