Exaltation of Nuit

The Iris bloom too soon shall pale and wither unremembered.
Osiris slain.

Yet Lady, in that transcendent moment, the Iris is forever young and fresh
and kissed round with the nectar
from the Golden Cup of Eos.
Then why should we wait, who are as ephemeral
as the rainbow's shimmering.
A breath caught in motion of life -
let us take our joy in these still vibrant tides
while there is yet light,
Lest we turn away and embrace the Ever Encircling Night
Too soon! Too soon!

Thou art the Earth Eternal and the Night!

I have seen the glimmering starlight in your eyes,
and the jade flame that dances in your breast.
I would drink your blood-red wine of dissolution
and be unmade - the Universe our bed and body.

Be Thou Nuit!

As I am the Jewel in the soul of Ra,
and a silken pillow for my mortal lover.
All power and all Night still silver glowing -
the oceans the milk of my secret heart.
Embrace me and the Sun, there is no difference,
and in that tender burning I will soothe.

Thou art Death!

But not forever - for I am the One Who Was Before Time and Moons
and we shall find again that ancient bower
cloud wrapped and imperishable.

Be Thou Nuit!

For one moment of Immortal Passion that is swiftly gone
and forever unchanged,
And I will crown you with the stars, my children,
and they will sing in silent harmonies of us,
Long after the night has faded and is lost.
