Earth Spirits

November 4, 2007

Subtle shape shifters, spirits of water magic,
kin of the wind since time was very young.
The secrets of the ancients, known to earth and sky,
praised by human voices - earth spirit song.

Each bird, and every creature to crawl or fly,
speaks in its own way to share this grand tale.
The magic that welcomes every dawn with a sigh,
parting two worlds through a thin misty veil.

Spirits of thriving vine and wise grandfather tree -
spirits of the meadows, marshlands and field.
Mountain spirits whisper to virgin lakes and streams,
worlds unto themselves, untouched and concealed.

Deep caves, high cliffs and spirits of thundering surf,
carry forth mist where plump blackberries grow.
Earth spirits of root, leaf, bark and fertile soil,
entwined in sacred rhythm, life's unending flow.

Spirits of cloud, of equal seasons and weather,
touch every living thing, each day and night.
They turn the crisp pages of history's making;
the journey awaiting each of us to write.

Googlenation rocks doesn't it! laugh Wouldn't it be nice if life was just this full of magic instead of us just feeling it that way? The mists here in the mornings tend to make me imagine I live inside a cloud here sometimes when I can't see the horizon with it so dense! But I have a practical and logical mind dear lady and while I enjoyed your lovely poem and the magic feelings it evoked my feet stay firmly planted here amidst the mists.

Hi LadyBee!~ So delightful to hear from you. I'll always opt for magic, but don't have to go far, for it's there...right there in front of me every day. This poem is about what IS there. Thank you for stopping by. ALWAYS lovely to know you're out there and it's a blessing when you touch my life with your words and kindness. Hugs!~gift

Goddess, indeed it is. Ireland is the most magical place I've ever been to and I know I have a past life connection to it. There is no other explanation for the things that happened there. Blessed and I hope you will read my other poems about Ireland and things of a celtic nature. Have a wonderful day! Thank you, Celticwine
