THE OATH



Checking the mirror
before leaving for the ceremony.
This other-worldly Priestess
gazes back
from where my reflection
should be.
Recognition probes
the outer reaches
of consciousness,
where Akashic Records
aren't quite closed.
And I ask,
'Are you seeing your future,
or I my past?
Who are we?'

I arrive at my destination.
Donning robe of forest green
brings a sense
of impending transfiguration.
Searching my palm
for clues
I find her lifeline,
a descent uninterrupted
down the Spiritual bloodline.
It maps the many times
I've been born
have lived and died
to bring me to
this monumental time
where I resume my function
amid Druidesses nine
upon this Hill of Avalon,
hallowed since Morgan's time.

Back home now.
Returning to the mirror.
Why is it no surprise
that she and I have synthesised?
A solemn oath abandoned
millennia ago
has been at last fulfilled.

  2. I like the "other-worldiness" of this and how it is synthesised. Three great questions asked and I have one, will we learn the cause of the abandonment? (Maybe you've already stated it in an early post?) :)

  3. Hi Shauna, great to hear from you again. So happy you enjoyed the poem. Thanks so much for your encouraging comment :)

    Hi Gnome, I think the "abandonment" is probably due to a lack of faith in my own abilities - still a major challenge in this present life! The possibility of being unable to live up to others' expectations of me remains a major fear!!

  4. Ygraine, Somehow this poem speaks out loud to me! I am intrigued by spiritual lore and have often wondered seriously about the 'thoughts concept' you touch on here since I have had some personal experiences in the past that make this quite a reality to me. My knowledge on this is unfortunately rather limited. Very interesting subject very well written. Love the flow. I find that underperformers expect more from others= it is just their way to decieve you into thinking that you are less capable than they are. Have faith in yourself you do not have to prove anything to anyone ::D
