You who stand on both sides
of the mortal threshold
the scarab beneath your feet
behold me with your divine eyes
help me see
with the heart of a newborn
give birth
to the sacred future in me
awaken abiding compassion in me
fill me
with the ancient light of your stars
find me worthy
lift me up to your starry body
of feminine grace
let me sail with you
through night and day
you who make gods
create me anew
