Stages of life
Phases of time
Childhood to motherhood
Motherhood to Maga
Maga to Crone
The Hag of Crones
The many landscapes we travel and traverse
The many states of being that are unseen but felt
We navigate the pathways as best we can
We listen and learn that’s the way it’s always been
But what if the way we choose to move
Is different and strange to those that went before
What if we look at each phase of life as if we are planting?
Seeding, growing, creating and harvesting it all
In the summer of our youth, we dream and plant seeds
As maidens in the spring of our life, our seeds begin to glow and ripen
As mothers, we create and move through our life
With the knowing that our creations will ripen and grow
As we move forward in the seasons of life, we enter our Autumn and our harvest begins
As Magas, we sit and ponder so much
How much have we missed out on in our youth?
Are we too old to be noticed anymore?
Are we indeed shunned for not being young at all?
Too young to be old and too old to be young
Yet our mind, body and soul say different things
What is it that’s changed in us at this time, we are not young and full of seeds to plant any more
Yet we have many, many creations still to be born
But time is not on our side
are we even old enough to be wise?
Yet we are not yet the crone of old
We sit somewhere in the middle like a moonless night
Somewhere in a landscape that is not talked of in life
Then as we pass through this liminal land
We enter our Crone years and Winter has begun
We walk our crone for many cycles.
Until we meet our final stage the hag of crones
She is the one that the fables and myths speak of
Full of wit and feistiness, her no-nonsense approach leaves her being hated and adored
She keeps her counsel and never breaks
she is the wisest of wise ones as she ripens and bursts fully into her age
At winter's end, she leaves this place
With a long life lived she knows her fate
Navigating your life can be a journey tough or of ease
Full of wonder and joy
Love, friendships and trials by the score
Many things challenge us on our journey of life
Many phases highlight our seasons of life
Yet none compare to the courage we have
When decide to live our life and be the person we are meant to be
