The Queen of My Self



Praise to the Goddess Sun — Our Lady

By Shekhinah Mountainwater

Praise to the Goddess Sun — Our Lady

For She has been born

From out the Womb of Self

Her Mother

And She has danced and played

Amongst the flowers

And She has grown to bleed

And fertilize the Earth

And become once again Woman.


And She has met with Her Other Self

Her True Lover

And together they have swooned in ecstasy

And She has swelled with life

To Nourish us all

With Her milk and honey

And She has given to us Her love

And received of ours.


And She has descended into the dark

And met with the Old One

Who leadeth Her unto death

And the Lessons of Mystery

And now

She begins Her return journey

And She shines

O my sisters,

She shines golden upon us

Once more.
