I finished a prayer to Aphrodite, in fulfullment of a promise I made her, last night.

Aphrodite

Unsurpassed goddess, with love and awe I greet you.
Sea-green are your eyes, luminous and fathomless;
flawless is your form. O wondrous Aphrodite,
of water were you born, in water we know you--
in soft waves of pleasure, in torrents of desire,
in salt tears of lost love, in salt sweat at love's end.
So sweet your gifts, goddess, unbearably sweet,
so sharp their agony, so thin the line between.
For love that fills the soul; for life-giving passion;
for pure, clear, beautiful lust-maddened hearts;
for solace and hope; for love's comfort and terror:
O Aphrodite, for your blessings I thank you.

Thank you; I'm always a little terrified when I post something like that, so it's nice to hear :).
