Supplicant

Earth is your garden
Goddess, light of heaven burning
Bright, in your service

We flower in you
Goddess, queen of the cosmos
Formed in your bounty

The wind is your praise          
Goddess, of the starry field
You spin the world, fate

Cleanse the poison air
Goddess, free us from our doom       
Swoon, our toxic prayers

The malignant Earth
Goddess, heal these damaged bones
Lift the thick night, blind

Awash in your tears
Goddess, blossom and rejoice
Along the greening road

Running hot and free
Goddess, pour your waters out
Life, the clear current

Mistress of the Norn
Redeemer, gentle Goddess

Pure as morning dew

Loss of Faith



The world in shadow
The falling rain is poison
Look, there is nothing

Fertilize with pain
Gardeners with their shovels
Dig beneath gray skies

Nothing to choose from
The cultivation of thorns
A heart piercing loss

Is there purpose here
Death of honesty, and grace
Smothered with deceit

All our plans falter
The truth has no recourse, act
Hollow devotion

Ill reminders serve
The dead, always questioning
Why me, why sorrow

Only the living
Are lonely in a garden
Death has the other

The world in shadow
The falling rain is poison
Reach, there is nothing
