Rivers of November

Rivers of November

A Poem by Raven Starhawk

Rivers of November ripple and divide
Wandering barefoot beams of truth light recovery road
Jaded tides crash
Season falls into deathly hallows
Dracula sips a black house nightmare
A goblet's content is a sorcerer's business
In stone ages a hell bound heart weeps
Twisting trails prolong time
Still under tragedy’s shade, healing hands fold
Legends of devotion surpass righteous leaders

Mountain pastures so callow in infinite skies wake
Dark eyes open
Silver clouds billow all around
In the shadows time is lost
Desert sand takes residence in my mouth
Heaven's tears splash on my face
Destiny blows flecks of sun colored skin
Hollow wishes devour empty dreams
Tomorrow is yesterday; a handful of ashes
Twilight roses quiver
From their petals dew tears fall
Past midnight they weaken
Time was never here
Stainless cold blue steel illuminated in the moonlight

Avenge the shade of dawn
Before the twilight of queen, secrets I keep
Channels run far and wide yet narrow
The voice that rolls past them is sweet
Silk woven lies cursed her words
Forever do they harness cruelty
Deceiver of nations, hate decays the heart
Whispers caress the darling winds of July
Like a feather they skim delicate fibers
A somber shadow shrouds me
