Today marks 20 years since I was called to serve the Goddess, since I named myself Witch and took my place amongst those reclaiming, remembering and revisioning a new world into being.
In that spirit, I make the following poetry offering to Brigid on her sacred day, as part of the Seventh Annual Brigid Poetry Festival. The words are a scrap of poetry by Sappho, translated by Anne Carson. Blessed Be!
stars around the beautiful moon
hide back their luminous form
whenever all full she shines
on the earth
