A poem by Charlotte Oliver with a photograph by Robynne Limoges

IceFloe Press

Nut, Mayan Goddess of the Sky

Back curves and bleeds
mood-colour to the sky’s edge
each morning she swallows down
the face of night
heart heaving bears
hot orb of light
to bring hope bright
a gossamer blessing
draped across the people
fades with passing hours
until the deep lace of night
swaddles tight
torn white
by moonbirth
and with velvet star-flecked breath
whispers to Her shining child
a lullaby of silver-haloed clouds.
