leannan si

Leanan-sidhe and Raphael

300 and 47 days

til Valentines..

here with you now

looking for my love

and a song

and a lemon tree

and all the words we used to say

she painted her toes and ate Chinese and drove me home

la scala and vodka drinks and cereal bowls…they all bring her back

back in the night in the million waking concrete splashes outside my window

winter rain and green spanish glass

and she smiles

like she does

and says

“shhh, it’s ok

sleep my love

sleep”

post script:

“In Celtic folklore , the Irish: leannán sí “Barrow-Lover”… is a beautiful woman of the Aos Si (people of the barrow or the fairy folk) who takes a human lover. Lovers of the leannán sídhe are said to live brief, though highly inspired, lives. The name comes from the Gaelic words for a sweetheart, lover, or concubine and the term for a barrow or fairy-mound.

The leanan sídhe is generally depicted as a beautiful muse, who offers inspiration to an artist in exchange for their love and devotion; however, this frequently results in madness for the artist, as well as premature death.” 

The Leanhaun Shee (fairy mistress) seeks the love of mortals. If they refuse, she must be their slave; if they consent, they are hers, and can only escape by finding another to take their place.”   wikipedia
