If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Heartsong of the Forest Queen
« on: July 02, 2020, 02:47:03 pm »
The Dawn Choir praises
the efforts of Grandfather Sun
Sky Woman brightens
Day has begun
Mist becomes dew
Jewel-bright and gleaming.
In grey silence
cautious, graceful
She glides upon cloven hooves
from forest to field
from Waking to Dreaming

“Queen I am
Woodwise
Crown invisible
Fashioned only of humble grace
Divinely inspired
My watchful king
Proud crown
branching wide for eye to trace
Enthroned upon sunset hill
Stomps a warning
Bugles a challenge
defending our realm between
concrete and wild thrill
Softly
Dance upon the Earth
Gently
Slip through the brambles of this life
Kindly
with empathy
Open your heart chakra
Show your worth

Can you hear us
bounding through the forest, oh my brother?
Do you see us
hidden in the long grass of the meadows, little sister?

We are there
Hiding
Waiting
Hoping
Dreaming of the day when
We need run no more before
the cunning hunters
armed with wicked teeth
or worse, angry gun
Wolves may bite, may kill,
Man's hunger
knows no such limits
Man taught us such caution
We tiptoe around dawn
Vanish, like Fair Folk, into the dusk
You drove us from our revels
in the mid-day sun
Yet
We are One

Flidais
Cernunnos
Artemis
Saraswati
Mystic guides
in white or gold
We can show you
the wild ways, hidden paths
through maze's leafy mold

Only in Silence
will you know the heartbeat
of our Mother!
Only in Stillness ,
will you see your way
open clearly before you!
Only with Love
can Healing begin for self or other!
Love your self
Heal the world

Love,
like Life,
Unending
Love,
like a stream of Light,
wending
Its gentle way
through My heart…
to yours…
to your brothers’,
to your sisters’…
’til it forms a bright path
into a better Day!
You must choose to follow
but I can lead the way!”

For those new to the game, each poem is inspired by a Teacher found in Nature; a star, stone, animal, plant, etc that holds lessons of Wisdom for us. Can you guess who is singing today?
Wishing you laughter

You speak the truth lol This lovely singer is, by some accounts, my birth sign. I do have an affinity for them, and their lessons are usually my foundation. The Dalai Lama is my favorite example of a Deer person.

True, the Forest Queen sings this one. Most likely because I identify so strongly with deer. I see at least one every day here. Lately, it has been a lovely doe with twin fawns! I went out to water flowers early yesterday morning, turned around and there they were, munching happily, watching me from about ten feet away lol

Thank you! Book one was collected around Water, but this one revolves around Night; Serenades by Moonlight. It's only about half done, and boy am I learning a lot! My Teacher songs always appear first here at the Cauldron though :) Where they started

Wishing you laughter
