The Words Of The Goddess Of The Land


Walk with me in the world of appearances,
Mossy velvet green covers the forest floor of memory
But I know where wisdom waits.
Ragged juts of truth like paths of limestone
Make solid steps between the worlds.
What lifts my foot up from the crevasse
But the salmon of wisdom leaping from that world to this?
I am a bird, I drink the air.
I am a fish, I eat the sea.
I am wisdom.

  1. I so love these sort of poems as you can read them over and over and get more from them each time.

    Thank you

  3. I don't know that much about Druids,but I love Stonehenge and nature,so they were on the right track it seems.I love Shamanism and that's an area I feel compelled to study.
    I like how it was taken from
    "I Know Where Wisdom Waits" by
    Dr (MAYA) Magee Sutton, joint author of "Druid Magic: The Practice of Celtic Wisdom".

    As I'm looking into the Mayans at the moment.
