Stepping onto this path…


Stepping onto this path you are changed
For there are creatures at your side
And your hat holds a feather or two
And your clothes wreak of the earth and the fire
and your own hot blooded sweat
Mud lines the hem of your trousers
And you speak of empowerment and dreams and journeys
with those that others can’t see
Your voice has changed and a song or two
or a poem or even foreign language emits from your lips.
Others will think you gone mad, but you know the truth
Others will ask you to return
Your old self was the one They loved
So familiar so nice so comfortable

You do your best to tell them
love still remains
you are who you are,
just a little taller
more outspoken
With things that really matter

Stepping onto this path you are changed
And others will fear this
They won’t understand

No matter, you are changed and cannot go back
When leaves fall from the knots in your hair
and paws and claws make that sudden appearance
reminding you where you have been
And the sound of the drum sings out your tune
Take heed and know
Your soul your innocence is returning
The time is now, it cannot be … undone

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. Caroline is: A mother and grandmother A writer and poet A dancer A spiritual life coach A catalyst for change She is available to you for guidance
