Its a subtle feeling this magic that has invaded my home.....
no never invaded ...far too harsh a word for this secretive sweet presence that is making itself felt.
I have waited for my Heart of the Woods for many months now with a longing that borders on the questionable and although I knew that the waiting was inevitable for such a creature to be prepared and ready to travel to me from afar, still patience was difficult to master. Nevertheless there was pleasure too in the waiting, in the planning,in the suggestions and in the anticipation.
My Heart of the Woods,Spirit of the Forests and Guardian of the Sacred Yew tree,
she who abodes in that secret place in the spiritual heart of the living forests,revered and protect by the woodland folk. She who is the guardian of the Yew tree,the tree of life,the tree of eternity and of resurrection.
Her essence has come to me now brightening my days in one of her many forms, that of a hare.
Therefore I present to you GWENCALON, my Heart of the Woods as you can see she wears the sacred cape that which is woven from the thread of the leaves of the Yew tree,delicately studied with the Yew tree fruit,
and Gwencalon bears the marks of her station, the Yew tree blossom.
......lifting her hood makes her invisible to undesirables.....and see her delicate pantaloons, gossamer fairy made by the Fées of Rochecorbon and adorned with delicate lace.
Some say Hares are rustic heavy and cumbersome creatures but none of this is apparent in Gwencalon,the chosen one;the Shining heart. Hers is a gentle wise nature and of a petite and dainty appearance and attire which belies her strong enchantments.
Thank you so much Stephanie.
