Celebrating Brighid with Poetry

One of the email groups I belong to has posted the following note about celebrating Brighid with poetry for Her day, Imbolc. I remember seeing this last year and thinking it was a great idea. I must find a poem!

So, if you have a blog or livejournal, please participate, and if you don’t, well, simply enjoy it. Go to my blog or someone else’s who is participating and just follow the comments and the links and see what wonders await you. Here’s the skinny:

Testing, Testing, 1-2-3

I am hoping that by creating this blog, I will journey into Spirit more often, and express it through writing. I love to read about witchcraft, and deity, but I need to do more than read. Describing it seems like a good start.
I like Brighid – I had a great journey with Her 3 years ago at my first Reclaiming ritual. I keep saying to myself that I will work with Her more closely, but it doesn’t seem to happen. Trying to do so now in the middle of a technical education doesn’t seem like the wisest plan, but I’ll give it a go. I want to spent time with Her, and will take a hint from the flamekeepers at Ord Brighideach, and try to tend Her flame at least once every 20 days.
I’ve also been able to take both the Iron and Pearl Pentacle classes, and would like to run the pentacle energy once a day.
There, I’ve set some goals. They seem doable.
I’ll let you know how that goes. 🙂
