I want this job

In the older telling of Persephone

and her mother,


Persephone chooses the job

of orienting the dead…..

Offering pomegranate seeds….

Waving them on their way

Shafts of wheat.

She Was Not Abducted,

which makes the story completely different!

What we choose, we can do

even hard stuff.

Rituals help.

“Look to the sky

Look to the earth

Rain and conceive”

Reunion with the Mother.

Above and below.

Old woman, Baubo

tells a dirty joke

with a giggle- it’s spring.

Persephone returns again

Dirt on her third eye

Satisfaction in her heart!

One thought on “I want this job

  1. Love this one!
