Read an Excerpt

Voices by Raymond T. Anderson

Kerastes is a Wiccan High Priest and Ceremonial Magician--

My life is filled with women's voices,

Anchors of life and home,

Guideposts through quiet spaces.

--

They do not sing to me in choir but each distinct--

Marvelous her colors and shades,

Gracious her comings and goings.

--

Crystal--

Seer speaks from depths of fate,

Else the Witch cackles

Shivers of joy down the spine.

--

Cynthia--

From the lofty tower rings

The genteel voice clear,

Drawing down the moon, calling up spirits.

Tamantha--

Seldom seen brightness

Reluctantly shared,

The well placed spirit dwells.

--

Thaelo--

Soft and melancholy,

Loving at midwinter night,

Warm as the hearth fire.

--

Heather--

Almost cacophonous with cheer

Shrill tones chase away the dark,

Prodding the lilies to open.

--

Inspired by their music,

Reproved by their censure,

Rewarded by their favor--

I will be led by women's voices--

Marvelous Her colors and shades,

Gracious Her comings and goings.
