Lady of the Flame


(Image Source)

Your sacred face emerges from the shadows

You’ve been keeping the wisdom for 1,000 years

They tried to quench your flame

But they are petty men, controlled by fear

A sword tempered by fire and ice

You are protectress of the land

May courage and might flow through my veins

Guided by your hand

May I drink from your well

A goblet everlasting and true

Flanked by the double serpents of healing

Your waters reveal and renew

Your cloak of blue, the world-wide sky

Poetry falls from the clouds like rain

Lady Brigid of the flame

Your burning pillar will rise again

  2. look at that hair! i wish i could braid mine like that.

    you’re a really cool artist.

    open minded.

    you’re the kind of person that follows your heart, and i can really feel it in your art.

    the world is a strange, schizophrenic place and i’m glad theres more original people!

    thank you,

  3. Thanks Jolene! I didn’t create the picture, but I did write the poem. I linked to the original source of the picture though.
