Poem: The Face of Cerridwyn
The Face of Cerridwyn
As the death of each loved one
fills the burial field of old age,
our hearts drip our own life blood –
slowly, gracefully, lovingly
into the cauldron of Cerridwyn.
Each drop mourns our loss,
feeds our own certain death,
resounds our transformations
as her dark visage starkly faces
each and every one of us.
Drop, drop, dropping into her abyss,
we are fearless, joyful, resolute
in the Crone wisdom of her grace –
knowing her black graves
are a place of peace.
