blank page
staring
back at me
challenging
a new beginning

here comes the rain

These ogham poems are an exploration into understanding a mystic alphabet sometimes used for divination in a manner similar to runes, tarot, and etc. It is part of my continued investigation into understanding the Old Ways, and not meant to imply I have expert knowledge about ogham. In fact, any meaning I ascribe to a given few may be largely based on personal reflection, meditation and shamanic visualization. The meanings I apply are highly personal and may not follow the meanings assigned by scholars of the writing system.

here is alchemy
mixing many ingredients
synthesizing
the many threads into one
producing old owl on the limb

struggling to frame
chaos without containing

tall pines stand tall
looking for signs
of success
