Rubus Fruticosus Rhumba
« on: March 04, 2019, 12:19:23 pm »
My blossoms summon bees

to do my bidding

My wine dark drupelet fruit

tempts every feathered messenger

Lures B'rer Rabbit,

Bear, Fox, Deer

from their sheltered nooks

Even you may find yourself

standing guilty before me

Fingers & mouth incriminated

by the stain of my ink

More than 2000 years

No stranger to Witches, Doctors, Cooks



Brigid's star, Bride's blessing

Sacred bramble

Beloved by expectant mothers

children, Fair Folk and

the poet smith Goddess

We encourage you to think

Feed

the hungry

Comfort

Strengthen

the worn & frail

Heal

the sick

Protect the innocent

with bladed cane

and daggered bodice

Tis our duty to Provide

Our right to Defend

Our pleasure to Inspire

as we all ramble

round this Wheel



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

I'll guess Raspberry (partly because that's what I snuck through fences as a kid).

And, like Sefiru, I'm happy to see these again. They're a tradition on TC!

Sweet Sunflower, you always have a kind and encouraging word. I put all the brambles together in my basket lol whatever I can reach. I always thought blackberries were my favorite until this year. I tried a boysenberry for the first time and lost my mind lol. It is all the best of raspberry with all the best of blackberry. Minor religious experience lol. I have plenty more poems to share, and hope to be around more. Its been a long road since 2005 learning to manage my ptsd. Finally, Finally feeling like me again!
