FINDING OUR REMEDIES

Since the beginning of times, when people were nothing but part of nature, our ancestors looked for remedies to their fears, concerns, heartaches as well as their health.

Many different recipes for long and healthy life were to be found easily, since we had not forgotten our origins, we could smell, feel, taste what was good for us and what was poisonous, we had not yet forgotten our deep link to the animal world.

From those memories can arise again a research, sometimes a life long one, for natural remedies that will support our development, re-awakening our senses.

In this last part of winter we can begin to gather the traditional stories that will lead us to the beginning of a new wheel of seasons in spring time, this is the perfect time for preparation, contemplation, dreaming.

UNENDING …….

UNENDING IS THE TIDE

Unending is the tide

crashing on the beach

dragging the pebbles

in a long drawn sound,

down in the depths

where waves are born,

where silence reigns.

 

Gently the waves lap the shore,

caressing the sand in a shy embrace,

a soft kiss that leaves no marks

on the unperturbed border

between the worlds.

Such is your love

Such is my love

 

Down in the depths

where passion lies waiting

for the next opening,

its chance for life.

A howling wind

stirs up the quiet silence

creating a torrid storm.

Nothing can remain quiet,

nothing can stand still.

All is captured in the vortex

for as long as it lasts.

 

A soft breeze carries scents

of old forgotten times, lands of plenty,

memories and dreams.

The delicate scent is powerfully intoxicating,

it flies everywhere,

no human, nor animal, no tree, nor stone

is left untouched by its golden hue.

Such is your love

Such is my love

 

Never meant to meet,

forever walking aside,

never together.

Such is our love.
