God of gods

By Veronica Carvajal

read by Fenella Edwards


Abraxas,
God of Good & Evil,
the Alchemists of old
revere you.
You bathe in the Nile River by day,
the human will
its seaweed traps.
And at night the Milky Way
soothes your woes.

Light in the darkness,
shadows in the light,
you shy not from those you cast.
Your image lies
reflected in the Cedar’s might,
in the ringing of the crystal bowl:
the sacred quartz
played in the chambers
of the pyramids of Gods.

Our radiance reflect,
our double unveil.
Keeper of the pyramids divine.
Orion & Sirius’s dance enshrine.

Abraxas,
Would that I could
borrow your dreams.

fenella edwards
