DEMISE OF THE SILKY SKY, part 2

DEMISE OF THE SILKY SKY, part 2

A Poem by Betty Hermelee
"

Goddess' Demise, resurrection of the spirit

"

PART 2

DEMISE OF THE SILKY SKY

 

Moon, stars, planets, sun, lament

the doom of Goddess of Fire

futile to search

for the ashes stroke the earth

 

All foregather on Planet Fire

from which she presents

daylight’s silence

planets’ roam

sun’s sluggish gaze

moon’s lips freeze off

stars’ slumber

 

The extraterrestrial domain awakens

In the night sky

with desolation in its spirit

all pay homage to their lost Goddess

crave her sanctity and wisdom

 

The Northern Star speaks

“Everlasting memories

our cherished Goddess

spews out fire of strapping energy

to all who desire

we will shadow her paradigm

and sanction showtime to begin

once more in her life story”

 

 sun spits fire

 clouds whizz by

 moon winks

 stars blink

 planets swivel

Part 2 completes the myth of the sun's daily journey that began in part 1. All of the elements of the galaxy gather to mourn the apparent demise of the fiery goddess. However, it is also a welcome to the sun as it begins its daily resurrection. And so the journey resumes, as it always does.

I love how you shift feelings between part 1 and part 2
part 1 was more of loving life and admiration and part 2 was more of anger and passion
I love how you captured every part of the galaxy and spoke on their behalf
Thank you for sharing this and hopefully you, your family and your beloved ones are safe ❤
