Banshee of the Moon

Rate: 3 Flag
Clouds and Moon

Night clouds race across the lapis skies like ghost lovers, 

Hunting the tattered remnants of old passion.

They are mine, eerie minions.

I am enigma, the phantom Huntress.

My love waxes and wanes.

New moon,  Crescent,  Gibbous, Full and back again.

I am the Banshee (Bean-sidhe) of the Moon.

Keening and weeping  for  the incandescent radiance

Of Soul-friends beyond the veiled Shadows.

I love, I pine, I mourn.

Until reborn cleansed and shining.

Pearl  

The pearl bathed in an everlasting Spring

Flowing into the River of Life.

My cool face shines on Love’s Delight. 

Pearl Moon
(Dedicated to Mary, RP)
Etymology:  Irish bean sídhe & Scottish Gaelic bean sìth, literally, woman of fairyland

nice imagery, doireann, i like the idea of the moon as a pearl, or clouds chasing each other like ghosts.
Beautiful imagery and images. I didn't know the etymology of Banshee. A treat indeed. ~R
WOW and WOW, this poem is so amazingly beautiful and I am so very honored to have it dedicated to me. I have long been a lover of Hecate, the Moon Goddess who is three Goddesses in one. The girl, the maiden and the Crone. She would love this poem as much as I do. You are a fabulous poet, I am humbled by your talent.

I forgot to mention that I am of Irish heritage and my soul name is
Airmeith, Celtic Fairy Goddess of Healing.
