A Reindeer Goddess Lights A Candle For Darkness
Red candle held aloft and ready,
this Reindeer Goddess
moves forward without haste or fear
of the darkness that lies ahead of her,
or the darkness hidden in shadows,
or any darkness reaching out from
the spaces She must travel.
This Reindeer Goddess knows the Secret:
Light and Darkness are not enemies.
Light and Darkness are lovers,
heart-beating mirrors which reflect
the reality each beholds in the others' eyes.
When the Reindeer Goddess lights her candle,
she blesses both Light and Darkness equally.
And then continues on her journey.
