Intimations of Ancestry

In keeping with my exploration of Witches Familiars and Horned Gods, I feel this old poem of mine expresses the psychic power of their presence.

Song of the Gundestrup Cauldron


***************************************************************************************************************

Silver Cernnunos sits in splendor
Crowned with branches of oak and hart,
Whispering a lie of immortality.
Wolf and deer gaze in wonder.


She turns the moon in her hands,
spins the bowl of blood in a silver spiral.


Silver Cernnunos looms darkly above,
Antlers stretching against the white north.
He is golden as mistletoe
Captured in oak.
He floats, a brown leaf
On silver waters.

She turns the moon in her hands
Spins the bowl of blood in a silver spiral.

A strong golden necklace
Protects the dead
On a path that is bordered
With black, waling mothers.
The Queen of Crones
Cradles the bones.
They cling
‘Til a white tree
Grows in a well.

She turns the moon in herĀ  hands
Spins the bowl of blood in a silver spiral

Backwards she walks
Down a stairway of mirrors,
A nautilus spiraling,
A maze of ancestors…
She waits in an orchard
With a sickle of silver.

She turns the moon in her hands
Spins the bowl of blood on a silver spiral

She turns the moon in her hands
Spins the bowl of blood in a silver spiral

She turns the moon in her hands…

  1. i feel more than words when i read ,i can hear music, and water dances, and when i try to take a word out of the text when i touch it in anyway it transforms into water. so i enjoy taking the words so that they become liquid. it s so much nicer than a mousetrap.the poem about silver cernunnos is great it s not written with words but with grass, stream and leaves or so it seemed to me.you can actually see the words melt into a whole as soon as you utter them, and they form a picture and then you think you can walk in the picture and you are there.and your tarot cards brought tears to my eyes, but i don t know why yet. i also think i can forget myself in it, or drown.

  3. Can I simply say what a relief to find somebody who truly is aware of what theyre speaking about on the internet. You positively know easy methods to carry a problem to mild and make it important. Extra folks must read this and perceive this facet of the story. I cant believe youre no more widespread because you undoubtedly have the gift.

  4. Thank you Maricela. I’m glad you found that energy here. I have trouble taking the intellectual approach to these things that thrives on the internet these days. So its nice to find people who recognize my intuitive approach.
