I am a poet and writer and love walking on the land. I have self-published two poetry books—’Avalon Dreaming’ and ‘Avalon Journeying’ and a sabbat calendar for 2010/11 ‘Avalon Reflecting’.
I also have a booklet ‘The Goddess Temple and Ceremonies at the Goddess Hall’ published by the Goddess Temple. I have written articles for various magazines and write for The Oracle in Glastonbury at present. I hold seasonal poetry circles in the Goddess Temple 8 times a year.
I take photographs of the land and elements and have recently exhibited at the Emergence exhibition in Glastonbury. My photographs can currently be seen at La Terre in Glastonbury.
I have worked with Gwenolye for 18 months and together we have created a deck of guidance/oracle cards ‘Nothing is as it seems’.
I am a Priestess of Avalon and the Goddess. I am also a member of the Bards of Ynis Witrin and entered the Bardic Trials in Glastonbury 2010 and 2011.
Once upon a time
Once upon a time there was a circle of nine
Nine dancing maidens upon the floor
Nine merry maidens to open the door
Nine witches to help you fly
Feel love, laugher and make you cry
Nine beautiful women dancing around
Golden footsteps on forest ground
Red of wisdom and white of sage
Nine women now trapped in a stone cage
Nine standing stones upon the ground
Beautiful nine no longer dance around
Feet trapped now on the forest floor
Nine women crying, release them once more
For the stones can be turned with time
Back to the witches dancing as nine
Release the magic, release the fear
Circle of nine can dance this year
Nine merry maidens dancing around
See them now on the forest ground
