EDEN’S GATE by David Friedland

EDEN’S GATE

I woke in the reflected light of Lucifer’s Moon
frozen, as shadow eyes hunt me glowing 
brighter as the Spirits commune

I wait at Eden’s gate for  the
serpent to shed his skin 
and let me in

His mate calls,
Her thighs glisten  moist 
as  the morning dew  petals of a midnight rose
Now as then, she knows!

I am David, son of Jacob, son of Joseph
 born of Miriam, at the instant of fire and fire.
I am, as I was., a traveler
Chosen to marry Dusk and Dawn
 Leilah & Helel ben Shaḥar
 For this alone, I was born.

Twelve times, I call those who fled
to Greet He who lives though dead
and each of the Four Who Guard the Gates
Uriel and the Fates

I greet
the Mother and Father
of all rivers, and every tree
even the rocks harken to me
By His Will
INFINITY.

Now together the fallen and the risen
what was taken is  now given
His breath rises as a warm wind
 The Child is Born Again

What has been done is now undone
We are
ONE

Demons howl at the still moon
Have I summoned them too soon?
Tempted even Satan to the gate
for forgiveness  of his hate?

I await the Masters word
Only He can declare them free
Only He the power to restore
them to eternity.

The forces of evil implore
me to open my own door
for if forgiveness is divine
They ask “Why do I withhold mine?”

The vine that grew from my father’s tree
is the  Serpent that now asks me 
Within the Child the answer lies
To the King of LIES.

THE CHILD SPEAKS  AN ANCIENT TONGUE
UNITING BABBLE SO WE SPEAK AS ONE
 “YOUR OWN FORGIVENESS IS DIVINE
YOUR OWN WORD THE SAME AS MINE”

IF YOU UNDERSTAND YOUR FATE
THEN WALK PAST EDEN’S GATE.
