Lovers ~Songs of the Sea Witch

The Sea Witch moves so close
the moon’s reflection is visible in her eyes
Her breath is somewhere between seasalt and hazel

“You are bathed in the rising tide of darkness
the birds leave the skies
as the breath of the night comes in
off a sea the color of a winter moon

Tomorrow the birds will return
few things are more subtle
softer
more inexorable than the Dawn
Life is as relentless as Death
In fact they are Lovers”

“And my Lady
What are we?”

“We’re players in a game ages old
You . . . you know the New ways and I am the Old
Both as one and yet separate
Anyone can dance by themselves
but boredom must surely ensue”

“Then m’Lady
dance me”
