Weaved Before Cast

Weaved Before Cast

I inspired a desire in the root of me
that budded and said I was ready
I collected the ingredients
earth to tempt away stone in my heart
crushed rose petals to flower love unknown
a pinch of chili pepper to heat lust
a dash of rosemary to catch aroma
jasmine to jar my stirring spirit
a red bottle and oils to smooth the way
The words began to coalesce
swirling together in my mind’s cauldron
I could feel the Ritual incantation gestating
Before I could work my eager spell
what I resolved to let in

The weaving caught us both
