The Empress

Artist: Luise B

by Caitlin Copland

Galaxies are breaking from your skin, love.
Purple clad mystics, climbing stairwell veins,
to breathe the tides of your good graces.
Resting behind midnight blue arcana
you sit,
Venus,
crowned in sanguine stardust
pouring seeded life over this half moon diadem.
You are all things I am not.
Holding this pomegranate world
with open generosity,
calling all those in need to drink.
How could I not sacrifice gifts of awe,
be blessed with peace at the alter of your temple?
Universes are climbing from your throat, dear.
