Rubus Fruticosus Rhumba

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


the hungry



the worn & frail


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?
