Friday's Flower

Unsurpassed Goddess, with love and awe I greet You
Sea-green are Your eyes, luminous and fathomless
Flawless is Your form
O wondrous Aphrodite!
Of water were You born
In water we know You
In soft waves of pleasure
In torrents of desire
In salt tears of lost love
In salt sweat at love’s end
So sweet Your gifts, Goddess, unbearably sweet
So sharp their agony
So thin the line between
For love that fills the soul
For life-giving passion
For pure, clear, beautiful lust-maddened hearts
For solace and hope
For love’s comfort and terror
O Aphrodite!
For Your blessings I thank you!
