The Goddess Tree

The Goddess Tree

The Goddess Tree

 

A poem taken from ‘Secret Garden of the Soul’ and inspired by a beautiful silver birch tree in a friend’s  garden in  Dorset, where I sometimes go to write.

The tree looks remarkably like a woman standing with her arms outstretched, blessing and protecting and giving  beauty, nourishment and joy to the garden and those in it. The sort of place you can sit and reflect and receive great inspiration and nurturing.

This is one of those very ‘blessed’ pieces of writing that just poured forth, asking to be created as a visual poem, and it is published here in honour of a wonderful and inspiring group of women I met and re-kindled spirit with on Saturday October 8th, at Romio Shrestha’s workshop on art for peace and transformation in London.

Please add your comments below about the workshop, the poetry or whatever moves you.

Amber – Kindling the Spirit of Autumn

Amber – Kindling the Spirit of Autumn

‘ is a poem written to capture the mellow sensual feel of autumn which I love, as the days grow shorter and the air becomes crisper, the leaves start to burnish and there is that distinct shift from summer’s lush green to orange and gold, deep red, amber and bronze.

I am often inspired by a sense of new spirit, new beginnings in autumn, just as much as in spring. Reminiscences of new school years, with all that brings, starting university, possibilities of  newness, learning and loving the freedom of different places and people.

There is the anticipation of autumnal treats, bonfires, spectacular colours, the scents of wood smoke and and sounds of leaves crunching underfoot – and then the excitement as Christmas approaches and winter begins to take hold,  branches bare against the sky, nights by the fire, mulled wine and glowing embers.
