The Hunter

This is a collaboration of my good friend Ian Graham aka Gray Flannel Images and myself.

He gave me the photo and asked me to create something out of it and I did. The original was a B/W photo of the forest.

 

The three women/ The Threefold Goddess....

 

Spanning many traditions found around the world is the concept of the Goddess as being threefold. These perceptions shared associations with the moon phases, with the growing seasons and with the phases of a woman’s life. Most frequently they are described as Maiden, Mother and Crone.

The Hunter

 

When in the wooded place I be

Then in the sacred grove is he

The God of Hunters, King of Creatures all

His horned head I see.

 

I sit beside him on the ground

As those in Gaul of bird and hound

His name is written but once, my Cernunnos

And still I know the sound.

 

He rules life and death

And guards the Otherworld

From where all forces flow

And all events doth know.

 

I know he will come

I've done the dances

Stay beside me now

Lord of the Antlers, Come...

 

Oh, when sun and moon

They rise up on yonder hill

He will rise inside me and

So shall ever be, shall ever be.
