The Queen

Snow on the trees.
Silence falls on soil and seas.
Under all that death and decay
seeds lie in the ground.

And I can feel her sleep
deep inside her golden retreat.
A thousand fires breathing as one
keeping her safe and warm.

And in her dream she calls
my name out and together we soar
into the darkness where the sun is born,
where nothing matters but the love we’ve known.

I hear her sing.
She paints new colours on my skin,
makes new landscapes from my bones,
weaving starlight into form.

And all the pain is gone
as she fills me with her song.
Nothing can resist this sweet tide.
Nature’s joy to be alive.

And when the light returns
I feel it running through my dragon veins.
I breathe out her honeyed dream.
Across the land life begins again.

And when the soft wind blows
and nectar from the blossoms flows,
when beauty, hope and courage grow
“It’s time to go”
she tells the hive
“to leave the dream to thrive”.

Elena is my amazing creative partner who produced the video for “The Queen” and the cover art. She shares my deep love for Nature and all creatures.

Due to the pandemic and rising food costs stray animals in urban areas have been struggling to survive. Elena provides a safe home, regular food and loving care including neutering to some 30+ stray cats. It’s a privately funded labour of love and your support is most welcome.

Thank you, Judith

What If

What if we opened our eyes to the magic of Nature?

What if we witnessed how she breathes in and out?

What if we fell in love with every stone and creature?

Feeling their pulse within and without?

What if we listened to the pause in between?

What if we dared to follow the Queen?

Dancing and weaving and flying free

To bring home the seed of what could be?

What if this chaos is not the end?

But a sacred dream

To make us whole again.
