The Inner Witch

Once upon a time

in a former culture

long forgotten,

a priestess foresaw

a probable future.

And though she issued

warnings, her prophetic voice

was lost as a path

in a true blizzard

the kind where there is no

step forward,

only hunkering down

in a crude shelter

fashioned blindly

in great haste

at life’s peril.

Sheltered there, covered

with icy dread,

she waits


for a song,

our cathartic voices

raised to melt

her cage

and ignite

her smoldering power.
