Wiccan Love

 

Wiccan Love

 

If you are even a casual reader of my blog, you know I rarely preface my poetic works. However, I must take a moment of pause to recognize and thank my dear friend, Kristian Weigman, for taking the time to collaborate with me on this poem. Her creative spirit, practiced ear, and linguistic beauty has been an absolute joy to watch, work with, and benefit from. I encourage my readers to visit her blog at Life’s Lessons From Around the Dinner Table. There Kristian offers her own great writing intermingled with her eye for photography, her ear for music, and her hand at magic. A true Renaissance woman! We both hope you greatly enjoy the following:

 

 

WICCAN LOVE

 

 

A haunted night under full moon

In lover’s month, when hearts swoon

Lilts an enchanting and trancing verse

A love is captured by bewitching curse

 

In a cauldron stirred with jackal’s bone

As spells are cast in chanted tone

Churns such a strong and evil brew

A drink that will the mind subdue

 

With eye of newt and wing of bat

Sacred herbs tossed in the vat

A long-stemmed rose, a lock of hair

Conjures an elixir strong and rare

 

I’ll be his desire, his every whim

As, I, the obsession placed within

Do grow and burn like blackened flame

The loving chains binding manly frame

 

With silver pestle and mortar stone

On hallowed skin and hollow bone

In pale light of devil’s red moon

I speak the words of ancient rune

 

“Penitent blood and raging fire

bring to me my heart’s desire.”

“I take this wand, cast my spell

to end my lonely days in hell.”

 

“In his mind, plant thoughts of me.”

“My beating heart, his home to be.”

“With this magic that I brew,

vex him to feel the way I do.”

 

“God of thunder, lord of rain,

retrieve my love and drown his pain.”

“Eastern wind carry my siren’s tune,

bound as one beneath blood moon.”

 

Portent cast on embodied man

To own his mortal soul my plan

As darkening clouds form above

He’s captured by my wiccan love

 

Now my lust kneels next to me

And I am his only reverie

Let the words, by enchantress spoken

Cast a spell that cannot be broken

  5. Brad, this is a magnificent collaboration. You two have created magical world: a mesmerizing world of beauty and love.

    Now my lust kneels next to me
    And I am his only reverie
    Let the words, by enchantress spoken
    Cast a spell that cannot be broken

    Why would anyone break such a spell? Beautiful my friend.

    Beautiful Brad! Absolutely engaging and powerful…I salute you both! Great work!
    I too was enchanted by this verse:
    “Let the words, by enchantress spoken
    Cast a spell that cannot be broken”

      Thank you, Francisco! Kristian is such a creative soul. We picked a premise for the poem and then I just held on to see where it would go. She was a joy to work with and I am proud of our work together.

      Thank you, Francisco. Don’t let Brad fool you, if it wasn’t for his light and inspiration that guided me, there would have been nothing to hold onto. I am proud of our work too though, and am already looking forward to the next collaboration.
