Ode to the Celtic in All of Us

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  In celebration of my Celtic ancestry….and the Irish in all of us, I share with you two poems born out of my Celtic heart!  (both to be included in my upcoming book, Happily Ever After – from co-dependency to the fulfillment of love) For the Celtic in all of us!  Slainte!

Irishness

Irish sensibility in a single phrase means, “all senses firing.”

A courageous openness and compelling urge to

move toward all things…

Daring to embody the full extent of feelings, sensations, ideas and experiences

Especially those which others might avoid –

Desolation, despair, disease, and death.

Irresistably drawn toward darkness, suffering and pain.

Curiosity for the macabre or raw, unbridled courage?

Perhaps they are one and the same.

Irishness comes with a certain measure of masochism

But not for the sake of one’s own misery,

But for the sake of understanding so that we may be present for another there.

Not as voyeurs, but in an overwhelming out pouring of unconditional support.

We’ve been there.

We know.

Defining Irish hospitality, not by our food, our damp climate, houses smelling of peat, or the aroma of drying wool, but by our ability to be with you in your pain, remaining there until every tear has been spilt, every rage unfurled, and every heartbreak repaired.

Thirteen of the Thirteen

 

Left foot first, sword in hand

13 of the 13 of the 13

The sword of truth

To think and dream and write

Her pen is her sword.

Of elfin ancestors.

Daughter of the Tuatha de Daanan and Pictish warriors.

Tattooed in woad,

Anointed in lodestone in a time before time.

Consort of the God beneath the Tor

Married to the Son of Light.

Morgaine and Miriam her South and her West.

Druid Priestess and Priest in the henge of stone,

And in the oaken grove of Gaul.

Walking the sacred labyrinth of immortal time

Life from life

Death from death

Dying and reborn

Reborn and dying.

Queen of the fifth dimension

Samantha’s gossamer cape

Rhiannon’s ring

A spoon full of sugar

and Midnight Margaritas.

Awakening the Aquarian Age

A magical purpose and call

To think and dream and love.
