This poem was written last July just as the day was dawning…
And it describes what I experienced that morning so well.
Part of my belief as a Druid, is that the Divine is in everything, and I could certainly feel Her that morning.

There is a silence over everything today
As if the earth is pregnant.
Broken by the buzz of bees
Hovering from flower to flower
Feverishly trying to outrun
The coming storm.
The air is heavy with a fecund smell
And dripping moisture
Like Angels weeping tears of joy for creation.
Soon though the storm will break
And the tears become a flood
And the silence broken
By thunderbolts from the Gods.

Sarah Courtney Dean: I am a poet and my poetry is part and parcel of my spiritual tradition. I am a Druid and a seer and also a member of the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids. I live in the UK in the beautiful county of Dorset. My poetry is inspired by nature in all its forms especially by the progress of the seasons and how the Goddess is seen in them. I am single by choice and live with a ginger and white cat by the name of Rowan who as all cats are prone to rules the roost. You can find me on facebook here and on my page here.
