aicme beithe/fifth few

crossing borders
fog dissipates &
a path revealed
threads woven
into peace

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.

between dog & wolf
in twilight hours
all things grey kissed with
brilliant illumination
& burning skies
the true-cast spear
pierces shadows

begin the begin:
the mists at dawn
brighten silver birch
as she walks on the water
shining through
giving birth
to otherworld selves
