New Ways


the one who is silent,
the one who dreams,
the one who dances wildly and the one who screams.
the one who sings to the plants in her garden
encouraging their growth
and dances with her fingers
amidst the undergrowth.

she loves the ripples of the stream
and the rivers torrential flow,
the whistling wind in the treetops
and the cawing of the crow.
the horses in the meadow,
their breath upon her brow,
paws of hare and badger
the softest rabbit fur
the mice that raid the larder
the rats within the yard
the dogs and cats of many
she shares her blankets with

the mud upon her doorstep
never wiping clean
remembering the place
she has recently been
where she returns to
every day
to whisper in the woods
to speak within the trees
where goblin folk will listen
to the poetry of souls
and taking of her cauldron
the medicine in bags
she trails the city walls
writing in the corridors
upon the masks of men
the new ways from the old ways
she knows has just begun.

from ‘The Circle, The Fire & The Phoenix’

About Caroline Carey

Caroline, born in 1960, grew up with a love for the wild, for nature, for animals and to dance. She wrote poetry and stories, created theater and explored the art of ritual of which she always held a fascination for. Not being of the academic type and being passionate about mystery, immagination and myth, she chose to spend her time alone with her many animals and the passion she had for ecstatic dance whether indoors or in nature. Her imagination was as wild as her life-style and by adapting the religious education insisted on by her family, she was able to recognise her own innate connection to Spirit and the spirit guides she became strongly connected to. Mothering her six, (now adult) children, Caroline has learnt the art of play, creativity, story telling and the deep surrender and unconditional love that motherhood bestows upon us.
