Fourth Submission to the Persephone Agon

Persephone
By Antheus

Hail Persephone!
Queen of those below !
Receiver of many!
Blessed Kore
gathering flowers
with lips stained red,
oscillating through
the mysteries
of coming and going,
of farewell and return.
May all my actions
please you!
May I always praise your name!
Until the day
when I tell the guards
to tell you
that Bakcheios Himself
has freed me,
and I join the eternal revel
as your blessed guest.
Hail Persephone!

The Covenant and the Blood

This is a good piece. I know many of you are going to get your panties in a twist because it’s written by Kenaz Filan but get over it. Try actually reading what Kenaz wrote.

My only quibble, is that I DO use the word covenant. I think that there was and should be very sacred covenants between communities and the land, the ancestors, the Gods and that this is precisely what was shattered with monotheistic invasion. The word was suggested to me by a Power and seems so much more fitting — because of it’s formality–than simply ‘contract.’ We have obligations to these things, to these Powers, that we have neglected for generations. how’s that working out?

Europa's Children

A Facebook friend recently sent me a link to this Tumblr exchange between an anonymous querent and Sian, a self-described “25-year-old queer girl from England. Scientist, feminist, Heathen & devotee of Odin, Sif & the Morrigan.” I generally avoid Tumblr, but since this conversation name-drops me and raises a few interesting questions, I decided to respond here.

Why are there no PoC Heathens? Is Kenaz Filan right when he says that Odin has a covenant with white people?

I have known several devout Heathens of Color. Given that most African-Americans have a significant percentage of European ancestry, I see no reason why a person of color might not be called by White as well as Black Ancestors.  Neither am I given to telling Gods who They can and cannot choose.  Wotan is an eternal Traveler and an eternal Strategist: He will go to far-off places and call upon strange…

Second Submission to Persephone’s Agon

Both
by Amanda Artemisia Forrester

Hail to You, Silent One, Nameless One!
Beautiful flower, with a steel core
Who walks the sunlit paths of the world above
And the ghostly roads below
Only You can live in both worlds
Only You can taste of the forbidden fruit of the dead
And return to Above to Your sun-kissed Mother
Only You hold sway over the heart of Death Himself
Only You can temper the wrath of Haides, the Host of Many
Lady of Both Worlds, we hail You now
As You prepare to go below,
Taking Your place beside Your dark Husband once more
Summer is done, the cold winds blow, and Winter is on it’s way
This is the time for You to shed Your skin of Kore, Lady of Flowers,
And become again Persephone, Queen of Shades
I hail You now, Savior of the Dead, merciful Mistress of the Mysteries
And also the innocent laughing Girl,
For right now, in this moment of Equinox,
When the Sun and the Moon are equal in the sky
You are Both
Both Girl and Queen
Both midwife and death-watcher
Both hunter and prey
Both birther and destroyer
Both light and dark
Both sunlight and snowfall
Both fertility and barrenness.
Tomorrow You will step across the Threshold,
Collapsing the wave-form
Into One.
Sweet Kore, gentle Kore, innocent Kore
Become again Persephone,
Queen of Winter, Lady of Bones, First Among the Dead.
Hail now to the Two Ladies, the Two Goddesses
In One.
