I honored Brigid for the first time about a month ago; I offered Her water and lit a candle. I wrote this poem afterward.  Moon Ivy suggested I share it here.

I am the Goddess of Who I can Become. I mix the magic of the sorceress with the blade of a warrior. I walk the liminal pathways to see the face of the Goddess, both terrible and kind. As She stares back at me, I tremble in awe and ecstasy.  --Me

I can't think of much to say (which is good, cause I tend to criticize! Tongue ), but I really like the flow to this. Just to make sure though, there is supposed to be only one couplet (lines 11-12), or are the two rhyming sentences at the beginning couplets too? These things in poetry often confuse me, so I have to ask.  Sad

Thank you. 

I think 11 and 12 are the only couplet.  I didn't think any other lines rhymed in the poem.  I think I'm confused.

I think I'm confused.

FWIW, I read it a sort-of a stream of consciousness kind of poem.  Not a rhyming piece, but one that flows smoothly from the heart.

But I'm SO not a poetry critic.  I just like what I like.  Wink

Thank you for sharing this.

Yeah.  It was pretty much a "stream of consciousness" thing. 

Thank you.
