Sorceress

by Atiya Walker Dykes

Sorceress

She married the black
and white creating
gray, and took
the middle path
surpassing 50 shades.
She was death and life
light and dark
succubus and archangel.
She mastered
alchemical processes
in the laboratory
of self to bring
brightness forward
out of darkness
by putting her
best foot forward
controlling her right
brain, integrating
it with the left.
She is now Lilith
and Eve, Osun
and Meenakshi
part yogini part
fairy.
She is the
triple goddess
and the Black
Madonna the
definition of magician,
the beautiful sorceress.
