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.

the entangling vines
wrap around & back
to where it all began
so very long ago

the great queen
calling me home
with her raven's croak

i will follow
