Hieros Gamos

Kuan Yin presides over this ceremony
For those who plumb the depths of the soul.

The fall's mists wash the toxic grime
Of past abuse and shrinking victim.

The bridge over turbulent waters
Leads them to the promised land.

Where birth and renewal release
Phoenix rising from the ashes.

The marriage bed has been made
And the divine union consummated.

Now the joining is being celebrated
At the honeymooner's rendezvous.

The inner being and outer doing
Are now joined in holy matrimony.

Wholeness is possible for those
Who release the bonds of blame.
