Be Deeply Rooted!

The feature image above is that of a single strand of Garnet (my birthstone) that I strung on to Grandmother Apple about 6ish years ago at Deeply Rooted. This tiny chip strand has weathered many storms and has heard many of my heart’s desires over the years. It was my first offering and interaction with Grandmother and to this day, it has stood the test of time.  I think back to the circumstances that led me to make the offering in the first place. While Grandmother Apple is seemingly eternal in Her beauty, my views on Paganism and my self worth have dramatically changed. Take a moment to breath in deeply and go on a gentle stroll down the yellow brick road of Dandelions.

Be Deeply Rooted!
follow the yellow brick road of Dandelions and Clovers,
past the house of ancestors of yore,
to a single amaranthine apple tree,
leaving the Chaos of the modern world behind you,
to a place unknown to almost all,
Be Deeply Rooted!
be moved by Her boundless beauty,
the gnarled roots coursing through the darkened earth,
and branches that move like waves being outstretched to the azure sky,
speaking to the Sky God above of the natural order of things,
Be Deeply Rooted!
In all things be fierce and proud,
and know something of Her life force,
when you rest your weary head upon Her twisted branches,
hear Her whisper softly through the tender breezes,
Be Deeply Rooted!
when you are done with your sacred confabulation,
take with you the lessons of the grass, leaves and bark,
dance past the Plum Grove feeling the steadfast coursing passions unspoken,
and know in your feral, Heathen heart that you will always,
Be Deeply Rooted!2017-05-14 (1)
