Folktober Challenge, Day 30

Inspired by F1.30 The Morrigan

The Morrigan

They carry wisdom on their wings,
caw and shout, but few will listen,
they whisper to the wounded and dead,
here we’re connected, here’s the thread

between Earth and time
what comes after has been before,
still men insist they’re crows of war–

but their ferocity is not for sword, spear,
gold, or sky above,
their fierce power comes from motherlove—

sister goddesses, a triad encircled,
black feathered they stand,
guardians of their children
protectors of the land.

For the penultimate day of Paul Brookes’ month-long Folktober Challenge. You can see the images and read the responses here.
