I am Keeper of The Secrets.
I am Singer of The Song.
Ponder stars & love's begin,
as Elders chant my name within.
Desirous, hunger, still unknown,
I keep the secrets,
sing the songs.
I am Goddess, b'neath the moon,
sway to feel the rhythmic tune--
reaching down to touch the dew,
I worry that the stars cry too.
Shedding tears for unknown long...
I am keeper of the secrets.
I am singer of the song.

I am aware that danger lurks.
And yes, 'tis true that fire burns.
Remembering days of laughter free,
prod ember of the dying me--
I pray to find serenity.
Keeper of no secrets sworn
singing song forevermore.


*this is a repost from open 7, in answer to Alicat's challenge, which I would love to see go around again...I could not find it? If anyone else knows, please either post again in challenge or e mail me...This one was fun.*

Very enjoyable read, especially the 2nd read through.  I'm curious as to what the challenge was as there are very few forms of poetry that I can identify or have ever known by name.

====================
YES you are ... and its music to me ear and eyes  


sen .. I have the template in my files ... I will send it to you...
yes it would be cool to see this one go around again with so many new people here since we did it before....
gonna go look for it now


Am I loved by my words
Will my vows weather the tide
Bended knees can forsee
all the rhythms of life
And a heart can be held without pride

The rhythum and rhyme scheme in this poem is excellent Celeste!  The words and phrases do the whole song justice...I always thought you were the singer of the songs anyway....my back up singer is starting a career of her own!   take care...ethome

Dear Serenity

I love the flow of this.  Altogether enchanting, and beautiful.  A pleasure to read.
