More moving things around

The topics from the Virtual Alexandria forum are now merged with the main forum.
This came with more moving things around. Sorry if this causes any confusion: I promise this will settle down soon!

Still, nothing should be missing. As always, please let me know if you miss anything and I'll try and fix it.

Oh yes, and HAPPY 2021! :)

An Oath...

An Oath
By Jen Besemer

doubt borrows like a tick
under my skin, denying
the older things i know,

hissing like meat on a grill
to say i am less than myself
and neither loved nor strong,

niether Priestess nor Empress,
my heart a wooden spoon
useful only for work,

my body cold and flaccid.
but i have rocked in the cradle of flame,
i have bathed

in the seed of my lover,
i have held the egg close to my heart.
this dance is not my last

i will burn that doubt
in the iron post of life
and will make my way slowly home.
I Aear cân ven na mar ~ 'The Sea calls us Home.'

For whatever we lose (like a you or a me)
it's always ourselves we find in the sea
~ e e cummings
