Fox Skin

Frenzied one, unbound one
Bringer of wine
Ecstasy’s father, ecstasy’s son
Ecstatic we dine
Dancers are many
Joyous and ripe
Oh what a pleasure
Sight a delight
Horns of the horned
Music of night
Rivers of nectar
Dance of moon light
Grove of the ancient
Drink of far sight
Cast down thy self
Drink deep of might

Strider of Fire

One spear echoes to sky of birth
One spear roots to pierce the earth
Wolf of night
Silvered helm one eyed bright
Drink of lightning consumed
This fire brings no doom
Howl of echoing strength
Wounding held at length
Feet are strong
Intent stretched long
Confidence one must walk
Silence one must talk
Rite of fire
Wolf is dire
Fire stride
Bare skin ride
A small test
Hidden from the rest
At times a mystery it can be
The most powerful secret none may see
Bare skinned dance
Wolves last chance
Eyes that blunt ones sword
Stealing ones will without a word
Two spears are the rite
True wolves howl this night

Kiss Of A Valkyrie

A visit under full moon
Pale one of unearthly beauty
Skin as summer snow
Eyes as stars of twilight
Hair as glimmering gold
One who graces the breeze
Has my time finally come?
Freedom upon my door?

Valorous one
Freedom has always been yours
Do not wear their chains
For your burden is heavy
My sisters have sent me
The Lady leads my way
To comfort weary shoulders
To gift weary eyes

I embrace your presence
For I can not find my kind
Please stay this night
Please do not go

Brave one
Cast away your sorrow
Your time has not come
Your path must be walked
None have entered our halls in centuries
You are upon this earth alone
But this you must change
They speak with false tongue
We left when the jealous one came
But you hear the wind
You hear the horns in the storm
Speak of our way
For every claim is astray
There are many who speak
Ones who are right with no left
Ones who are left with no right
You see them clear as day

I see them in truth
I stay far away
They know nothing
And have nothing to say
I sit in silence
Seeking The Way
Thank you for coming
Longer, beside me stay

One filled with passion
We are all here
My sisters hear you every night
Your words do not fall upon deaf ears
Please never fear
This night will leave quickly
We will come again
Yet one night you will come with us
Separate never again

Why did I come back?
My purpose is unclear
My earthly eyes are fogged
This world does not hear
My hands claw at nothing
Yet tonight they are ever filled

The Spirit blows through the forest
You are the voice
You must speak
You must show
Our time has come again
Blow the horn with might
We have fallen upon tongues of lie
Minds of deceit
Hearts of insincerity
Ignore them all
For a millennium none have entered our halls
Speak you must
One of silent belief
Have faith and trust
We will speak again
We will touch again

Do not leave
Why must you go?
It is lonely here
The warriors know nothing of truth
Bound in chains of slavery they all are
The poets speak of nothing
Bound in cowardice they write
The magic has died amongst them
There is no circle to act
No action they can make right

You must act
You must speak
The flame must be re-lit
Their spirits slumber
Our ways have died
Only life can breathe life
Call upon us when needed
You will never be misled
The Great Queen calls me back
We will see you again
For now a kiss and warm embrace
Passion never misled
I leave you with honey
Strong one stay strong
Tonight I leave you with honey…

Fey Music

Deep in the forest the witches play
Do you hear the fairy music?
The enchanting sounds of the Fey
Do you see the floating lights?
The orbs beckon from the Sidh
The Fire is bright
The Shadows at bay
Tonight the worlds are one
Portals opened from the Fey
The music beckons
Join us they say
The Fire is bright
Round and round we sway
Deep in the forest the witches play
Strangers are not welcome
Only those who know the dance of the Fey
The wine it pours
The smoke bellows forth
Deep in the forest the witches play
The flutes and drums
The rhythm takes you far away
Join us you who can hear
Come join the witches play
For Lord of Sun
Queen of Moon
King of Earth
Protector of the Mothers Womb
The lights flicker far away
The music lingers
A seducing whisper
Join us if you hear
Join the dance if you can find The Way
The Fey walk amongst us
When the witches play

Sacred Space, Sacred Blood

MuayThai

This is the place of Champions
This is the Forge of Iron
The time no one will witness
The pain no one will see
The blood no one will taste
What happens here is Sacred
This is our daily ritual
Alone, yet never alone
They need no invocation
They are already here
They always come
Outsiders are not welcome
Perversion is not accepted
The Earth breathes beneath ones bare feet
The vortex of energy spirals as a storm
It begins slow
It begins artful
Technique masterful
Technique and art do not win the fight
Technique and art do not survive the chaos
Only unbridled blood fury
Only unremorseful spite
The pounding takes over
Limbs of Stone!
Breath of Fire!
Hissing Tongue!
Humanity filters away
Only The Fury lives
Pounding, ever- pounding
Pain means nothing
Exhaustion means nothing
Pounding, ever-pounding
Are you weak?!
Will you stand amongst us?!
Blood must be given!
Blood is demanded!
Limbs of Stone!
Breath of Fire!
Hissing Tongue!
Pounding, ever-pounding
The fury eventually fades
Humanity returns
You stand amongst us
Blood has been given
Taste it…
Limbs of Stone…
Breath of Fire…
Hissing Tongue…

Let Us Take A Walk

Badb's Grove Art

That feeling
The feeling when one walks into the forest
The forest that is deep
Shadows enclose
The truth of existence wraps your essence
Arousal comes quickly here
Can you feel it?
Or are you still buried in false self?
It is the feeling of freedom
The feeling of truth
Here: You are what you truly are
Not what you wish to be
Not what you believe to be
The forest does not care
It will kill you without hesitation
Without remorse to your human beliefs
Everything here wishes you gone
Everything here is hostile
Yet, only here do I feel I belong
I feel welcomed
I feel unwelcomed
In that is the beauty of the forest
False celebrities
Royal cowards
Greedy politicians
All are naked here
There is no false worship
All are the nothingness they truly are
For he who needs society to be powerful
Is the weakest of animals
Walk into the forest
What are you now?
The smell of the swamp is inviting
Swamps are beautiful
For few tread here
Here one can be alone
Away from the lies and chaos
The copperhead that crosses my path is beautiful
We understand one another
As we respect what we truly are
The black widow that may be hiding
The hawk that screeches above
Nothing cares about your self created belief
You are naked and true
This is a place for peace and meditation
This is a place for finding and losing
Eventually the time must end
A return to the paths of concrete
The paths of slavery
This is a dog eat dog world
Yet I see few teeth
Only the noise of barking
I am sick of barking
I am intensely hungry

Lone Warrior

ValkyrSm

Odin is not my friend
Odin is failure, Odin is defeat
Odin is the blade that cut your skin
He is the risk you failed
He is the fight you lost
He is the betrayal of a comrade
The lie of a brother
The contempt of the clan
The hatred of a foe
Odin is my brother
Odin is my knee rising off the ground
Odin is blood wiped clean
Odin is a door locked, as another opens
He is wisdom gained through trial
He is strength gained through pain
He is victory taken by defeat
The passion of the horizon
The hunger to truly live
The knowledge to know what is not known
The creation of the Lone Warrior
I am him and he is me
The pack is thus One
