Long Meg and Her Daughters
by Lynne Sedgmore
Long Meg - touching your stoney spirals
I am swirled by your towering magical
sculpture of timeless Goddess power -
Bowing to the grace of you
Flying in the space of you.
Playing and swaying with your daughters,
Temple dancers hon’ring our mother
who protects our sacred innocence.
Ancient cathedral for holy heathens
praising Mother Earth as she pours
her wisdom through nature's portal -
beating in more wild days
bringing back the old ways.
Her first collection of poetry "Enlivenment" was published in 2013 and in 2016 she was named as one of the UK's "100 Women of Spirit" by the Brama Kumaris. She is a mother, stepmother and grandmother and lives near Glastonbury in a beautifully restored Georgian Chapel. She recently retired from working as Chief Executive and corporate mystic in vocational education to focus on Goddess spirituality and soul companionship with others. Her Doctorate is in spiritual leadership.
