Day 5 Bonus Poem NaPoWriPo2017

Standard

Blessing the Cursing Stone

 

We live in interesting times

Turn the bullaun stone sunwise

You bless the hurt, the wrong

The trespass against

 

Turn the bullaun stone counter

Clockwise for cursing

For want of justice, for greed

The ill-fame brought on

 

Three times three the power

Running exponentially

Trans-generationally

The harm rebounding

 

If you get it wrong

So safer to bless the evil

Be grateful for whatever

The day brings to you

 

But be careful for what

You wish for, for bane

Will resound as much

As blessings broadcast

 

Seeding the deep down

Living like mushroom spores

That burst into fruit

Under conditions

 

Ripe to eat and some

To poison, like the

Granny Begone

Slow acting but sure

 

We live in interesting times

Blessed and cursed, filled

Famished, poisoned, purged

Blooming in the dark

 

Blessing Cursing Stone

St. Brigid’s Blessing/Cursing stones in West Cavan on a spot thought to have originally been a ritual site of worship to the Underworld god Crom Cruach.
