My front porch in Old Town Eureka is known as The Sunny Side. Southern exposure, protected from the wind, it is an ideal place to sit and play old timey tunes and watch the parade go by.

Happy Ishtar

Temple Of Ishtar

Ritualistic mutilation, ancient symbol of castration
A Syrian priesthood neophyte stands in the temple of Ishtar.
The hunter gored, Adonis’ life is resurrected by his wife
His lover Ishtar, Aphrodite, Isis, Venus, shining star.

Through sands of time the temple closed, Adonis hanging ever posed,
Fixed nailed to a crossed upright, side gored and bled by the bitter spar.
Forgotten now by kith and ken, why cleave away the sacred skin?
For His rebirth at Easter time, in the temple of Ishtar.
