Beltane Rise

They share the sky at early morn
A god and goddess joined again
As birds sing welcome to the dawn
And dew feels soft like summer rain

The grass leaves gentle kisses here
Upon the feet of roaming stag
He seeks the love to bring him cheer
His eyes searching for springtide’s flag

She dances on the few-kissed ground
With silky blossoms in her hair
Her rhythm spirals round and round
A lover’s pulse across the air

The sun shines higher in the sky
Energy rising to the chase
And hooves and fee, they ask not why
They run until they reach that place

His passion fueled by hidden lust
As sinews burn to draw her in
The Beltane dawns in love and trust
The fated dance must now begin

About Jez Farmer

I am a freelance writer and poet and started writing after raising my two boys as a way of discovering just who Jez is. That is still very much an on-going project but the journey so far has introduced me to many wonderful friends and fellow writers through an ever growing love of poetry.
