FIRES OF VENUS: “Shooting Star”


Lady Frida Harris, The Star (Thoth Tarot 1942)


for Alexandra Bradley

I saw a shooting star

She was a wonder

I called to the sky and asked,

“Where are you going?”

She replied,

“Anywhere I want.”

She swept over the barren wastes

And the desolate fields and

The wreckage of war.

She thought,

“I can make this world a better place.”

She is the daughter of Atlas,

The daughter of Earthshine.

Protector of the oceans,

And lover of all things alive.

I saw a shooting star

And I was blinded by her light.

Bethel, 2008
