Worshipping the goddess

She rises

From the centre of the pool

Droplets of water

Cascading down her body

Candlelight glows and gutters

Reflecting damp silhouettes

Onto the painted walls

From the darkness of the hidden shrines

Music winds in sinuous forms

Echoing from the high arching ceilings

Of the old building

Each sound, each resonance

Brings forth a spark of the divine

The woman in the water

Raises her arms in supplication

Then bends to stir, stir the water up

To stir it as if the world is her cauldron

And all the people within are connected

By blood and stone and water.

 

Another piece inspired by Glastonbury and the traditions associated with ancient cultures.
