Concrete misshapen paving slab after slab
No where to go but down, no real growth
Just trodden down into shadow and gutter
No place for creature but tamed poisoned or maimed
Unveiled when hidden and timeless yet knowing she is here
In the cursed wretchedness of a landscape barren with body after body of lifeless despair
Filth beyond filth and not the sort that plays with puddles makes mud and lines footprints with where we have been
But underneath that trodden down cardboard cut out plastic rubbish bag collected one day but forgotten too soon
Homeless wreckage hunger for companion, still emerges sweetness and understanding of a ghost that left a home too many moons ago
Lost in a land of unknown multitudes of belly aches and doctors bills
No time to watch the arena of youth passing by and not notice that it’s changing beyond repair
Beyond repair if we speak and dare, just dare to be the spoken voice of a game gone wrong
No hope to belong
Not to belong but master the obsession
If possible if one can
If that risk be undone and life prevails

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.
