3. Beguiled


Even before our blood rode down from the north, my people lived in a bond with their sacred ground.

On the night of the first planting moon, a woman with the magic of “the voice” would sing alone to the fields. Clad in a white shift, red gold hair and moonlight, she poured forth our hopes like water. She danced barefoot on the fresh-turned earth to the beat of her body’s drum – each beat a footstep, a heartbeat, a pulse.

I don’t know why I should dream of that tonight, just because I danced at a wedding and became ensorcelled.


This is for Nessime, if she will have it. See her lovers in If Ever Two Were One.
