Born of water revisited.

someone asked where the title came from? One of my favourite pagan chants.

Born of water, cleansing, powerful
Changing healing, we are...

This goes well with


The River is flowing,
Flowing and growing,
The River is flowing,
Down to the sea.

Mother Earth carry me, your child I will always be.
Mother Earth carry me down to the sea.
Here endeth water while I get on with earth shawl:) No name as yet we shall see what suggests itself as the shawl unfurls.

Under the full moonlight we dance
Spirits dance we dance
Joining hands we dance
Joining souls rejoice
