Secret Place

by Taliesin

Age Group: Adult

The winter sky,

burdened with hue of

Charcoal and ash, ominous and cold;




obstructing the light,

the blue;

as if hiding some marvelous secret

that if known,

would set the whole world free;

all secrets

released from the shade of longing.

I close my eyes,

And to my surprise,

A single ray of light

Gently reaches to touch my face.

It feels like warm honey

Sweet and viscous.

The pores on my face

having become as taste buds

bask in this sweet light

as it's warmth begins to sink

beneath my skin.

I open my eyes to see

this site of the sun

breaking the night

When I realize that I have

been fooled

by something far brighter,

for I find that I’m looking

at you.

Smiles ear to ear,

I must have laughed with you

a thousand times in this secret place

deep within my chest.

How did you find me here?

It must be the current that runs through you;

A beautiful river from which I drank from

Long ago,

that courses through misty

Forests of deep green

With all manner of vegetation

To quiet the hunger at every grasp;

A placed I have missed,

my wand now on a shelf,

covered with dust.

You reach and touch my chest

And my old soil cracked and dry

Once again becomes rich with minerals.

Vines, flowers and foliage begin to climb my limbs

And leaves of oak weave upon my face;

the antlers tower proudly from my crown.

With my hoofs back, agile and free,

I scamper to the forest edge

And look back at you with smiling eyes.

And with a flick of my tail

and flutter of my tongue

I leap into the forest mist

and become the fruit

hanging from all the trees.

It was the magick

Seen by a child,

In the reflection of a single drop of dew

Resting upon a leaf

that She cupped in her hand.
