I just had a request to reprint some writings of mine, they are:
Artemis, huntress of the moon, make my aim true. Give me goals to seek and the constant determination to achieve them.
Grant me communion with nature, allow me to live surrounded by plants and animals that I can grow, protect and nurture.
Allow me the strength and wisdom to be my own mistress, not defined by the expectations of others.
And sustain my sexuality to be as yours -- wild and free as nature itself.
Great Goddess of women, protectress from one's enemies, healer of grave illness, guardian of the dead, and mistress of prophecy and the future.
Aid me in my quest of spiritual fulfilment, and like Attis (who was your son and was resurrected as your daughter), transform me as adopted daughter and gallae to fulfil myself as I know myself to be -- whole and woman. Grant me safe passage in my physical transition, as directed from within or without.
Grant me leave to discern and discover the future, for myself and for others in constructive ways.
I'm just checking before I give permission, because I received a similar request earlier this year, but it turned out that the poem referred to wasn't on my website, and not written by me (huh?)!
The person requesting such permission, is running the 2008 Anatolian Goddess Pilgrimage! Um, I wanna go!
