Two cords, two colors

This is a poem I came up with at a workshop taught by Jaymi Elford on Tarot and Writing at Pantheacon. I dedicate it to Kat.

Two cords, two colors,
red for sex, white for understanding,
Two hands, two tools,
A wooden stick dipped in wine.
A silver goblet holding life.
The two hands strive for each other
through their tools and will
We meet in the bond
of wine and blood,
sex and understanding,
in mutual bliss,
in complete vulnerability
giving ourselves over to the
infinity of our souls
that we see in the mirrors
of our eyes.
We look to each other for love and lust
comfort and succor
for the focus of magical energy
and the realization of our goals.
