Excavating the Archives: Far from the Goddess

~ Hecate by William Blake ~ photo credit: wikipedia

Sunlight filters through the leaves
Lazily reaching out to the earth
But it does not touch me

Moonlight bathes all in majestic silver
Boldly breaking through inky clouds
But it does not reach me

Starlit beacons in the indigo night
Safely guide the lost and wayward
But they do not save me

I am far from the Goddess

Beyond the embrace of
Sun, Moon and Stars

I am far from the Goddess

The Green Lady

treeI am ever so excited to announce that one of my pieces of flash fiction has been posted on The Three Drops From A Cauldron webzine over the past few days.

The story is called The Green Lady (apt for sharing this news at Beltane, eh? 🙂 ), and it tells the tale of a Green Lady through the spring and summer on her quest to find her Green Man somewhere in the Wildwood.

The story can be read here:

The Green Lady by Sammi Cox

Also, if you have a minute, check out the other pieces of flash fiction and poetry on the site, which is crammed full with talented writers and beautiful writing.

The Song of the Wild Woman

Here’s an extract from a poem I’ve been working on…

Mitchells Fold

I am a wild woman
Untamed and free
Free to laugh and sing
To dance beneath the night sky
To sleep in the silver light of the moon

*

I am a wild woman
Untamed and free
Free to speak my heart
To sway beneath oaken boughs
To sit in the golden light of the sun

*

I am a wild woman
Untamed and free
A child of the earth and stars
Born of rivers and mountains
Daughter of valleys and forests

*

I am a wild woman
Untamed and free
She who wears her hair loose
Or braids it into knots
The warrior and the witch

*

I am a wild woman
Untamed and free
The shade and the shadow
The rain and the rainbow
The day and the night


As I mentioned at the top of this post, this is only an extract.  There are many more verses to go…but I think there are probably too many to post the whole poem here. 🙂

Wishing you all a great weekend and the Brightest of Blessings!

Lady Luna

Night time

By the silver stream

Endlessly flowing

She descends to the Earth

From Her home in the Moon.

Her name’s Lady Luna

She’s Queen of the Heavens.

With the magic of Starlight

She sings Destiny’s tune.

*

Throughout the night-time

She walks with the Mysteries

Casting Her spells

To which none are immune.

Charming, enchanting

Bewitching, beguiling.

With the magic of Moonlight

She casts Destiny’s rune.

The Swan Goddess

swan goddess

Over the water she glides

In grace and beauty

A vision of dignity

A lesson in gentleness

An effortless display of

Feminine potency and potential

A quiet confidence

Can be seen in her bearing

The proud lift of her head

The arc of her neck

When she spreads her wings

Showing her strength, her power

All who see her

Understand her majesty

She is resilient

Undaunted in the face of change

She is the lady of transformation
