The Dance Half Done

by Mary Ann Larkin

Our fate was settled centuries ago
when the huge floes cracked
loosening mist upon the island
sealing in herons in green-grey waters
a girl's black hair
falling from the turret
The island itself suspended
in a primal sac of light
fed by a dark cord from within the bog

Poets send their words into the mist
in this land where symbols live-
like a dance behind a grey scrim
a promise unfulfilled
a yes or a no never said
just as the mouth begins to form the words
a the heron lifts its leg
the girl her comb

We are stamped by this
land of murmurs and half-heard chants
a dreaminess in our gaze
hands caught in mid-air
eyes following a passage of light
The young women wrap themselves in grey wool
and go walking
The warriors watch

We remember
the dance half-done
the kiss almost given
the black hair falling from the turret
hear, above grey waters,
the half-promise of the lute

(with apologies to Mary Larkin for the changes!)

In The About Time Novel:

Cian's first and only love, Brian Boru:

Best Wishes, Cian! Our treubh tìodhlac (clan offering) comes t' ye from Eithne, Artgal, Diarmait, and Muirgius.

Ye may not ha'e known, but our Eithne has a wondrous voice.
'Tis a song she offers, now, from our treubh:
The Seeds O' Love
I sowed the seeds o' love
And I sowed them in the Spring
In April, May, and June likewise
When the small birds do sweetly sing
When the small birds do sweetly sing

You are Form 0, Phoenix: The Eternal. "And The Phoenix's cycle had reached
zenith, so he consumed himself in fire. He
emerged from his own ashes, to be forever

Some examples of the Phoenix Form are Quetzalcoatl
(Aztec), Shiva (Indian), and Ra-Atum
(Egyptian). The Phoenix is associated with the concept of life,
the number 0, and the element of fire. His sign is the eclipsed sun. As a member of Form 0, you are a determined
individual. You tend to keep your sense of
optomism, even through tough times and have a
positive outlook on most situations. You have
a way of looking at going through life as a
journey that you can constantly learn from.
Phoenixes are the best friends to have because
they cheer people up easily.
