Brighid

She who brings forth water,
she who feeds the fire,
helps them live together,

Better than live together.
What is water in fire
or fire in water but us?

Each living cell a drop of water
burning inside, as do we all,
toward more than elemental grace.

Goddess who banks the fire,
goddess drawing from the Well,
goddess of holy fertility.

Farmers, poets, women birthing,
all people of craft living fire, living water,
owe homage to she who brings them together.

Through acts of creation we each have the power
to help bring forth water, to help bank the fire,
to mingle their magic, and keep them entire.
