The Witches I Know are like Mugwort

Updated: Feb 14


The witches I know are like mugwort

Green in the sunlight

silver in moon.

Thriving on edges,

fierce and divine.


The witches I know are like mugwort

Clever and prudent

Mindful and wise

They know to remember;

they know to forget.

The witches I know are like mugwort

Tough and resilient

steady and calm.

Their bodies are sturdy,

their muscles are strong.

The witches I know are like mugwort

Honest and forthright —

steady and true.

They pull back the arrow

and let loose the truth.

The witches I know are like mugwort

Their dreams are their teachers,

their insight is true.

Their love is a wild heart

singing for you.
