Circe by Diane Dehler


Diane Dehler/ USA

Circe: renowned for knowledge
of herbs and spiritual purification.

I dreamed
last night
of Circe, pursuing
the Moon.

spilled red
water color passion
indigo gold,

of moonlight
ink across
her face.

Circe, I said - wait
my poem needs you.
She tossed white, wild sage
onto my sleeping body.

In dream
I was powerless
naked before
her beauty.

Rising to a
zenith, Moonlight
escaped my grasp
and Circe’s kiss.
