Being Crone, Am I invisable?
by Chaplain Marti Evans-Conley
Age Group: Adult
I was young once. I honored Crone!
Now that I'm Crone , I honor me too.
I don't wear a red feather in a purple hat. Instead I wear purple or black with the triple moon drawn on my brow.
I feel the drum of my heart beat fast, dancing in my backyard on the grass-I don't feel sad....
I feel the Mother Earth under my bare feet. I dance to Her mighty heartbeat.
I look in the mirror the Crone looks back; How did that happen? Oh yes! Way too fast!
Now I dance more and more alone. Not seen by the young, remember I'm Crone!
Am I invisible because I grew old! I have a story yet untold.
Knowledge has grown throughout the years.
Does no one see me? Does no one care?
I still have magick, I'M STILL HERE!
New to this area, trying to reach out; No one answers no eyes turn back.
Am I invisible because I grew old-now I am Crone so much of my story yet untold.
Author's Notes: I wrote this because so many women that have grown to be crone, like myself. Feel invisible in today's society. Most people look past us like we no longer are in existence.
I find too that even though we are supposed to honor Crone, we don't seem to honor women as they enter that stage of life.
I do dance alone, I honor the seasons and the moons, yet it is alone.
We are wisdom, we are wise women, through life lived. We are still here...we love, we laugh and we have more loss. But one thing we will never lose. Is our love of the Goddess. She sees us.
