Hymn to Brigid


Ask her †
where those wells touch sunlight; †
where water kisses fragrant air †
bursting with daisies, sweet honeysuckle †
where she guides ink in heathen hands †
pressed against warm sheets of paper, †
word becoming thought, †  
thought becoming deed, and deed †
becoming reason in humble retreat. †  
†  
Ask her †
where Celtic blood quakes in the eaves †
of an oak-bound house, where children †  
gather around Motherís milk, a fire roars,
part faith, part God in the arms †  
of the hopeless. She moves †  
dew-wet in morningís breath, †
a tongue of scarlet smouldering †  
with the ache of an ancient sun. †
†  
Ask her †
how her eyes burn in the telling, †
how her heart is home, beating †
and alive in springís relentless call †
trails of coltsfoot and celandine †
gathering beneath coats of green. †
How she is dandelion, and bee †
in their greatest symphony, a dance †
in the strange light of dreaming.

With Spring's Blessing

With Spring comes many blessings
The time has come for new beginnings
Plants bursting with blooms
Mild temperatures when all things are green

It's time for picnics at the springs
Motorcycle rides and skateboarding
How I look forward to the Spring
And all of the blessings nature brings

Sweet Spring

† † †
Inspiration blows in on the wind † †  
Open windows welcoming in † †  
The warmth of the gentle breeze † †  
Brings sweet scents for me to breath † †  
† † †
Flowers blossom, I see the first few † †  
Daffodils, violets, and magnolias, too † †  
Birdsong chirps across the blue sky † †  
A call I yearn to answer in reply † †  
† † †
Optimism, the mood of the season † †  
Gives me yet another good reason † †  
To dig my hands in the dirt and be so grateful † †
That I am finally one with mother nature †

Spring

There must be something in the spring air
As the ice and frost melts from our bones.
Winter is far behind us in the rearview
Mirror. Rosy cheeks and happiness that
Creep in like splattered sunshine. Our hair
Blowing in the wind as there are unknowns
In world, but just like we know spring to
The core we know that there is attraction
To warmer days and flowers blossoming.
There is something truly magical coming.
