“Turning of the Wheel” – for my Sisters & Brothers of the Craft



Stir the pot
And turn the wheel.
Grind the grain
To make you feel
At one with Her
Who lights your path,
Who guides your feet,
Who heats your wrath.
Nurture your garden,
The fruits of the land;
Salt and spice,
You grind by hand.
Warm the yeast and
Pound the dough;
Watch it rise
While cold winds blow.
Fill your cup
With steaming brew;
Tea or wine,
With herbs imbue.
Read your books
And study prayer,
Magickal words
Recite with care.
Whispering sprites
In shadows dark,
They come to you
By candle’s spark
To inspire you,
A woman strong,
In companionship,
To do no wrong.
At mountain high
With echoes sounding,
You call to Her –
Your pulse is pounding.
Leafy branches
Winds they wave
Caressing your skin –
She doth forgave
Mistakes you made
In ignorance,
Before you learned
Her sacred dance.
And so it is –
My task is clear.
To spread Her word,
My Sisters dear.
I encourage all
To make a choice
To break the chains –
In freedom, rejoice.
