And she walked in the early grey misted morn
and knelt at the rivers edge
she gathered soft flat rocks
sixteen small stones
Rinsing them in the slow current
and tucking them in her pocket
she gathered herself and walked
While in that walking, she thought
of mystics and muses before her
of magic and laughter
and of the full moon that floats
somewhere in the morning sky
hiding, waiting to shine forth
this very night.
When she walked through the door
of the moss clad cottage
she climbed the squeeking stairs
to the loft room and she scuffed the stones
to make a smooth side
and she lay them out on the bed
and annointed them with cedar oil and
wiped them in water collected on
the first of May
She then inscribed each stone
with a symbol from The Old Ones
The Celtic shamans
When finished she gave herself
a reading from the new oracle
she had created, and when done
she layed the stones on the windowsill
in order to soak up the energies
of the full moon light
And now the Celtic stone oracle
sits and waits to tell stories
from old times
stories of healing and miracles
of old bones and river stones
of magic and laughter.....
These stones made on the full moon
in honor of a magnificent, magical
and spiritual past.

Re: Stones
WOW SueBee, what a visual!!
The Ancient Crone in you is truly shining through this.
It so reminds me of the seanachais (Gaelic for storyteller)
tradition ... will you weave more for us?
Luv ya,

Blessed Be,

Re: Stones
I will try to weave more sometime...it comes and goes.
I had the most peculiar dream the other night....my sobriety is making me have some wild dreams.
I was walking on water in what looked to be a Grecian pool, on the other side was a dead crow, I walked across the water to it and picked it up and willed it back to life.How wild is that ? I felt really great when I woke up.

Re: Stones
That's a really great dream, SB. I have come to the
awareness that with dreams, its all about one's feelings during and after, that gives us the true message. As
opposed to looking up symbolism in dream books. Of course,
for me, certain symbols in my dreams have meaning for me.
Like I always equate water with Spirit, and I think of the
crow as in the Native American Shaman meaning of the
message and the messenger. And Grecian pools always remind
me of beauty and serenity. Cool dream, girl!

Blessed Be,

Re: Stones

I just knew it Sue-Bee!
Stone magic is so serene,
My spirit is with you as you see
What stones can bring to you and me!
This creativity is a natural way.......to be stoned!
May you have a peaceful week
Floating there on your beautiful dragon-fly wings!
