Fervour Ekstasis

A whisper, like ivy tendrils

Caresses my mind

And makes me shiver.

I see the God in his eyes,

Smell Him in his sweat,

Taste Him on his skin.

I feel Him in his fingers.

My sight turns to mist

And drum beats echo from far away.

 
I slip, slide from his embrace 

And fall into His

Through smoke and wine and madness.

 
In frenzy, I feel the need to scream,

To dance, to roar – We are lions! –

The need to tear flesh and wash it down with blood.

 
I fall from myself

Deeper and madder and to a darker place;

I fall into silence.

 
I fall before Him,

Desire set upon the altar of my flesh;

My thoughts of Him alone.


My obsession, my dream, my Muse-man.

In bondage to His glorious call

I drink of His inspiration -


Fill me, O God, with Your heat

And when the flames consume me

Lead me to be reborn.

Each tile has a symbol for some of the many gods and goddesses who I feel closest to, most are Greek, but there are a few others in there as well. 'Io' is an ancient Greek exclamation used in invocations and as a ritual cry, it can be loosely translated to “I call”

My altar to Ares. 
The labrys, helm and shield were all made of crayola model magic; one of the spears is paper mache, the other wood. Swords are real, though only the center one is live.  The poppies are from Remembrance Days through the years and one from my Grandfather’s casket.

Medusa, My Love

My Lady of the oceans’ steep
High cliffs;
Those built up with
The bones of all who’ve
Looked upon and seen
Thy face alight and shining bright
With terror,
Beautiful and fair;
And whose eyes that hold
Reflections now of me.
I stare as though, I’ve turned to stone
Enthralled;
In thrall to thee
I give myself, breath and soul
To thee in offering.
And offer forth my life, my flesh
My joy and suffering,
To gaze from now
To the end of time
Upon thy mystery.
