Domina of the Forest Green



Domina of the Forest Green
Hidden beneath a canopy of leaves
I dwell in a cave dark as death
And drink from the river of mother nature’s breast

I gather brush, branches and sage
Build a fire, and fan the flames
Bathed in moonlight and in the company of Fae
We dance and sing, I pray and I prey

I mix wildflowers, incense and seeds
A magical potion to serve all my needs
I stir and stir with a magical ladle
Old as time made of silver and hazel

I gather wishes from the old stone well
Clear the cobwebs and cast a spell
I chant, I meditate and I scry
And ponder who may live or die

The pure most heartfelt desires come true
Selfish and greedy, times three return to you
Hope is given to good souls lost
A coin in the fountain and fingers crossed

I am the pith of legend and lore
Light, shadow, calm and storm
From the darkest heart conjured into creation
I broke through the vail of twisted imagination

A crown of elderberry and twigs of thyme
Sets atop muddy locks of braided vine
Eyes that see what is yet to be
I am Domina of the forest green

About this poem

This is my first attempt at creating a fictional character based in lore. I hope you enjoy.

  • I am still waiting for the sheriff poem, ( who always gets his man ) an antidote to The Land of the Gun poem. You do build interesting characters in your poems !

  • Another masterpiece from Lisa
    Discovering the real beautiful nature
    She is not like the Tower of Pisa
    Painting from an easel, a delicate picture !

    • Thank you for your comments. It was the first time I created a character like that and then put it into a poem. I enjoyed writing this one. Thanks again! Take care, Lisa.
