ritual


under a carnelian sky, sand massaging the soles of adorned feet
the romantic warrior observes the heavens
everything must be in alignment, total peace

dressed in breastplate bone, draped with jewels
sacred beads resonate

observing the horizon he is smiling that the gods are pleased
they have created an illuminating moon guiding to that holy place, pinpointing where love is to be found
silently outstretching his arm beckons her to come, and embrace the illumination

she descends on a staircase of stars
fluid deerskin gown, sea pearls woven in her thick hair
regal yet soft
her bejeweled choker resonates as she stands before him

bone of adam

silence

placing her hand in his they walk, beat of drums, ancestors past, ring in their ears
two sets of footprints engraved in sand

the stars witnessed their love while the third set of footprints danced in joy
