The Pagan Experience blog project: March wk 3; Deity

To catch up on this project I will be posting items  from others or reposting one of my favourites of my own. This week is deity and the divine, and I love this poem by Tom Hirons.

SOMETIMES A WILD GOD
JULY 19, 2012 
Sometimes a wild god comes to the table.
He is awkward and does not know the ways
Of porcelain, of fork and mustard and silver.
His voice makes vinegar from wine.When the wild god arrives at the door,
You will probably fear him.
He reminds you of something dark
That you might have dreamt,
Or the secret you do not wish to be shared.

He will not ring the doorbell;
Instead he scrapes with his fingers
Leaving blood on the paintwork,
Though primroses grow
In circles round his feet.

You do not want to let him in.
You are very busy.
It is late, or early, and besides…
You cannot look at him straight
Because he makes you want to cry.
