quick poem experimenting in extending my verse and incorporating mythologies took me nearly two hours of disjointed periods to get the thing done though.

I am generally happy with it but can see where I need work particularly in verse construction. I am also sure that I would redo the second last stanza if I develop the poem further.

The Goddess

In existence that which is numinous and unspeakable Through the goddess we reach a union that seems reachable Within the darkness how to express something knowable There she stands a blanket of our own weave and design Allowing a contemplation of a world that can somehow seem mine She exists in Roaring seas vast plains forest thick and Mountain tall In heavens above and all creation below she manifests as us all In this experience a soft alluring voice might sound and to call With many faces and many names she may manifest different to another Because she loves all her children distinct and unique as their mother

In Isis the goddess fair and divine who is she of the throne A knee to be leant for that blessed life given to me as my own Oh Merciful empress from which tears gave birth to the Nile Who’s love is of all poor, allow your presence alone make me smile May the knot be tied your name sung in praise of devotion Oh beginning of all my beginning came but by your motion Protector of the dead the departed and despaired Your compassion, Patience and magic made Osiris repaired You are my Goddess of fertility nature and abundance By Spica’s light I thank you for my bread and sustenance

Gaia my mother my eternal rock and my foundation

Primordial mother your vastness invokes trepidation You the creator who created the male sky your lover Who you laid with to create Olympus and all other Grand Mother of the Earth and mother to all that lay in Overseer of the natural order creating joy for I and all my kin You are the earth and the planet upon which I dwell I need no concept an empty metaphysical shell If my deity you want to meet it is a simple deal Look at the ground beneath your feet my goddess is real

As Kali Ma my goddess changes to something harder to comprehend To truly appreciate her beauty the fear of death I must suspend The Black the innate and mover of time that is She To lament my death thus affords me no opportunity in life to be She is what moves the world and all cosmos to dance and hence It is only through her being that anything at all can ever commence She is the destroyer of illusion the guide to contemplations higher It is through her love that one can truly master their own desire As Shatki she exists in the root of life itself the primordial energy It is her will to seeks union with Shiva to attain a perfected Synergy

My goddess manifests in so many ways not all can be put into verse Across many cultures and lands in which no single poem can immerse

As Athena goddess of wisdom and giver of knowledge to man Through her insight, language and teachings our consciousness span As Aphrodite goddess of love and beauty she manifests ecstasy to all It is only through embracing her essence that man does not fall As Lilith the original partner of Adam a voice of freedom For her own right to chooses she denied Heaven and the will of a kingdom As Mass Durga the inaccessible goddess of the tiger who is invincible Her fierce nature and compassion inspires an awe so profound it is inconceivable

All these gods deserve some consideration and recognition For what they speak tell and represent in the human condition Many nations and many people have tried to give the world voice Attempt to understand a world unspeakable to find reason to rejoice The goddess is not easily understood because she is not set in stone She is not one culture’s but all people in all places not one person’s to own Celebrate all that we regard as feminine and divine is to recognise that in another All goddesses exist in human form that divinity exists within the significant other Now the trick would be not lose sight of this in hallow thoughts of mundane Too look at that goddess and think her plain you would be insane and profane
