Poetry

I felt the sun on my back

Warming the crystal close to my heart

My fathers love

And deep sense of knowing

Who his daughter is.

 

From inside the darkness

The intelligence within

A small voice

A song

Distant in it’s charm and eloquence

But close enough to move the darkest shadows

It will speak the truth.

 

The fierce warrior

and humble martyr sit in the hands of unrequited love with

hungry yearning, yet softly manipulate the clay of knowledge

Through it’s fingers

 

The ancestors call into the void

As the void is no more the mystery,

where the crow sheds it wings and lays broken

but gifting it’s medicine,

 

No longer the oasis but a wild orchard,

a garden of wonder

Blossoming with the fruits of many life times

And from one small corner

A song and a drum beat is heard.

About Caroline Carey

Caroline is an English Grandmother and an aspiring crone~elder, an author of four books, a speaker and innovative and creative teacher, offering her work via workshops and gatherings online as well as internationally. By adapting the religious education insisted on by her family, she was able to recognise her own innate connection to God/Spirit and has been on a spiritual path since childhood. She is a champion of music, dance and poetry as healing tools since she was four years old and developed an innate understanding of the soul’s journey, a connection to physical embodiment through movement, theatre and the creative arts. Her work is harmonious with nature. Her journey has manifested as her own personal training into eldership and crone-hood, carrying the wisdom needed for stability and balance in individuals, relationships, families and communities. Mothering her six, now adult, children, gave Caroline the art of play, creativity, story-telling and opened up the deep surrender and unconditional love that motherhood can bestow. Caroline has trained in many modalities of dance, therapeutic and spiritual teacher trainings since 1986. She is a writer who has published her autobiography and four other books about her spiritual work. Her latest book, 'Middle Earth Wisdom' will be published soon. She lives in UK with her husband Ben Cole, a film-maker, a director who works with men’s initiation groups. They often offer work together, incorporating dance, presentation and film.
