Cerridwen's Call

by R.W.Wolf

Age Group: Adult

Cerrydwynn’s call
As I step without this cloaking shell and
dance into the dark
Dark Maiden wraps me in her warm embrace
I'm cloaked in mystery
Where am I, where do I go? I know not where this
journey takes me
I've been to Briton in the past and danced on
the isle of Eire
I've ridden plains alive and unchanged by time,
in bloody warrior's frenzy
I've hailed Robyn and the Maiden, weeping, even
as I persecuted them
I've been trampled, raped and skinned alive, left
bleeding in the dust
Stormed cities in a red blood lust, gathering tribute
for my Ceasers
I've swung the labrys against Saxon foes along
the side of Arthur
Elsewhere I've wielded claid-he-mor against
incomers from distant shores
I've seen Paul’s church come and grow, turning mysteries
To lies ‘gainst those who wore the woad
I’ve seen empires arise to fall, lives and cultures
blown away on fates wind
In forested glades have I danced skyclad, sweat flowing
‘neath silvered waxing moon
Into the Cauldron to return again, new life cycles
Of the Lady Cerridwen
Tens of centuries have I travelled, followed red
Threads until unravelled
Atlantis sank beneath the waves, overburdened by
Flowery conceit
Fled through the times of inquisition, bent and broke
Burnt to submission
Is this a dream, this journey I take? Or is
It just A re-awakening...

Author's Notes: one of the first truly poetic pieces I wrote. this was several years after awakening to 'what' I am and who I am . . do not seek classic "poetic cadence" or metre in my writing, they write themselves, and as such, write their own rhythm . . . enjoy.
