Standard Bearer

Standard Bearer

Deep in the Essence pool
I sink
Unencumbered by old ways so that I can find the Old Ways
Locked within self
Waiting

They did not need to wait for ever
And I am so grateful for their song
I dance a slower dance now,
But I still dance

It is woven of fibers of mist and fire
Of sinew and bone
It soars through the air
And hunkers by the fire

It remembers the running, giggling girl
And honors the fickle, fecund maiden
It embraces the mother’s heart
It takes the standard of Crone
With open arms

It is all that I am
Open, bold, free

What I do not give
Cannot be taken

Be careful what you ask for,
and of
me.
