Leave No Trace

This is a world of material, And in it I walk alone. A wanderer here for a time, All too brief and yet unknown.   In your hand I once held to trust, In hope of faith and strength. In love that once burned, With life, significance.   But how the leaf fades, And the…

Falling leaves

Another day has come to pass and at its end I sigh. Like falling leaves upon a weary tree, each moment of my life may be recounted. As I sit here in this late eve, I ponder where my footsteps fell this day. What have I achieved? What have I shown gratitude for? How have…

Spring

Sun rises and casts away a bleak, cold day. Where wandered far and wide the chill winds that enslaved the land, the young rays of early spring begin to tease new life into being. Trees sway to a new rhythm, their leaves still a thought not yet budding into the creative unfolding of physicality. A…

Emptiness Breathes

Emptiness within me breathes a sigh of relief. Room to stretch and move I hear you say. No chains about me, constricting and confined. Into the space where wakes the embrace of life fabricated in the darkness here tread. I hear a call, a cry goes up and yet there stirs no whisper to be heard. No sorrow…

Gilded Rooks

In the darkness there stands before me a host of gilded Rooks. Amongst the branches of a golden bough. Their chatter and clamour fill my senses, overwhelming me as I dare to step beyond the void and enter into the great beyond. Together, they come to roost. Together they speak of things unknown, that I…

Arianrhod

Arianrhod weave for me a dream, upon your silver wheel where threads intertwine with the hearts of all folk. Where lives are born from the ether of beyond. Where souls in slumber await return to walk the green ways of the land once more. In your darkest hours before the rising of the dawn, when…

Take Flight

Once, very far from here, very far from anywhere in particular, a long gravel track wove its way deep into the heart of the countryside right to the edge of the wild. And where it ended, there stood a little house called Sunrise Cottage, framed by the biggest blue skies you ever did see all…

Urban Paradise

Some may say I am filled with life, but here I cannot breath. Some may say how bright I am, how very cosmopolitan and chic. Some may say I am vibrant, radiant and pulsing with a rhythm all my own. But here I cannot stretch forth my reach and here I cannot dance amidst the…

To the Anam Caras of our Hearts

My dear friend, there once was a phrase made of sound, formed into words and these words given meaning that I gave unto you. My beloved being sent here to me to show me hope and comfort. Even in the darkest of times. You came to me like the promise of light shed upon a cautious…

Temptress of the dark

  Pilgrim of the heavens abode, a wanderer lingering ere not long. Whereby upon the eventide, begins a ritual in solitude arise.   Of a journey ere westward told, over innumerable miles behold. Weaving a path across the sky, in a journey of unending miles fly.   Bright Lady, silent sentinel, temptress of the dark. Maiden, Mother and the Crone, bleak night of…

Silver Willows

Once long ago when all was fair, I sat beneath the willows, there. With clouds upon high and drifting by, the heady breeze played through silver leaves. Arms around me, holding on and with promises to remain ever strong, my love and I sat ‘neath the shade, with whispers of love and tokens we gave. His words…

Being

Darkness is but a canvas for the light. Paint it with all the colours of your heart and let it shine. Light is a vessel for the shadow of ones soul. That place where dreams linger and hopes can grow into being. Edris x
