Somewhere/Godspouse

Somewhere, amid dark blues and silvery greys, a deity wakes up, his hair unruly and untamed, a mass of auburn and dark chocolate curls, his eyes green as emeralds in the grass of early spring.

He straightens his back, his body still numb after a long sleep of many years. Slowly he walks, his movements languid and slow. He relishes in moving, yet he is still half dreaming.

On the threshold, he looks back. Wistfully, he smiles. The night has been a long one, but the nights are always long for the Wild Hunt.

Each Nos Calan Gaeaf he finds someone, each Calan Mai he weds, and it doesn’t matter who it is. He needs a godspouse, as it is the law of the gods. Having priests and prophets is not enough. You always need someone as dedicated as a priest, and as close as a spouse – to love, honour, teach and protect.

He sighs. There, in his bed of stormy blues and silvery greys, someone is still asleep, his hair standing out in the semi darkness, golden-blond, reddish golden, as a new born Phoenix or a tamed flame. The new one.

He has many of them, his earthbound family, his children, his students, his godspouses. My flock, he thinks, and smiles. My own. All different. As different as sun and moon, fire and rain. Still his own. Forever.

Somewhere, amid dark blues and silvery greys, a deity wakes up, his hair unruly and untamed, a mass of auburn and dark chocolate curls, his eyes green as emeralds in the grass of early spring.
