Ancient Knowledge Revealed
In forgotten poetic countryside terrestrial geomancy, hides secrets of the universe.
Answers to riddles of numbers, ratio and angle.
Yin and Yang.
For it is behind, shadows of mountains, that neglected spirit paths lie.
Here the dragon and white tiger still travel ridges and hills, pass twin streams, pause at a green knoll.
Here, beneath the veil of wind and water, harmony blends wood with fire, metal with earth. Secrets are revealed. in forgotten leys, cosmology, and spherodical earth.
The sweet smell of molasses still hinted at journeys past when she left port.
Her cargo immigrants, the first wave.
Famine's hand gripped the land they fled.
Death still waited, so did ordeals unimagined.
Obstacles, there would be many.
Perhaps her name was a subliminal message
for them, and for generations yet unborn.
*Perservarance-The name of the ship that left Ireland in 1835. On board the first of many who would flee the famine.
The Feast of Samhain
Ancient gnarled oaks stand as silent sentinels in the pastoral hills and valley that shelter bones of souls old when the country was young.
Time has nibbled away at their gravestones, so that little remains to identify who these were.
Here and there a date, a name, and sometimes an epithet.
But the wind remembers what the stones have forgot
It waits to speak their names until the moon is full and mist has shrouded the vale.
Waits for the "time which is no time" when the veil between two worlds opens.
Then the wind calls, a low moan that wakes the sleeping ghosts and invites them to dance.
It is the feast of Samhain. And druids on wings of dragons fly in to join the frolic.
Fairies and elves from Lands of the Sidhe emerge to celebrate as well.
They feast on milk and cakes dance as witches chant and candles are lit.
They celebrate until nighttide ends and the sun rises. Then return to earthen beds, hidden copse, forgotten vales.
