Cerunnos

Filed in Gather Writing Essential by on April 9, 2012 0 Comments

If it were easy as an apple you would already be

a disciple of Cerunnos.

 

A bite of sweet flesh, juicy in the mouth

like a woman,

 

and the veils lift to reveal the gift of the light-

bringer.

 

But it’s not a simple thing to walk the slim stray trail

into the deepest wood.

 

A thousand years of nervous priestly twitch-craft send us

programmatically to our knees,

 

while Cerunnos stands patiently in the last wild wood.

His horns are magnificent.

 

You can be, too.
