Bubbling potion
magic in the making
sensuous motion
accompanies the incantation

Eyes closed
she whirls and twirls
around the circle's center
as swift, the midnight hour approaches
when she bids the Goddess enter

Alchemical, her symbolism
in round of earth or moon
and fires are lit
in quarters all around

a sprinkle then
of faery dust
a prayer of truth and trust
and it begins

the transmutation
of a soul . . .
