Brighid – The Journey

Keeper of the Sacred Flame by Elfs Daughter

I knew you first in childhood

Resplendent in Emerald

Drawing my gaze, moving me deeply,

The Saint.

I knew you in my darkest hour

When deep despair threatened to drown me

And darkness held me gripped.

The Light.

I knew you in your many guises,

Isis, Bast, Quan Yin

And in every blade of grass.

The Mother.

And now I know you Brighid,

Not as a separate being,

But as myself.

The One.
