The Directress

from by blackQueen



With Great Horned Owl's eyes and the Raven's disguise
beneath the light, into your dreams she takes flight

Head of the snake, flickering tongues, in candlelight
mistress of magick and might.

Into the cairn, all come aware, somnambulistic spell
sighs from her mouth give birth to hell.

She has come aware, initiated heed her will
elemental sorceress come forth.

Raging wind bending tree, metal splitting wood and bone
earth smothering penetration, fire turning flesh to ashes

the blind shall run thru fear whilst the hunt draws near.

Moonlight sows hair and claw, predation becomes the jurisprudence
taking tongues so words can't fly, none escape the horned owls eyes

Talons from the sky silencing your lie forevermore.

From cavern to grotto to the plateau at dusk
a wind singing gently, on wings of pitch ride her lusts for power.

a song whispered to the ground below, opening ancient channels
through which her will flows.

Her wings kissed the mountains, her claws embrace the deep.

From fathoms deception rising, electroluminous eyes
from nimbus the raptors diving, the noctambulist arrives.

Spiraling zephyrs told her once of clandestine device
calling familiars to her will an incantation thrice
a thousand miles a second, overseeing eyes
drawing all together, initiated wisdom materialize.
