The Matriarch

The Matriarch

If you have not already figured it out, I love nature!  I really believe it is God’s gift to us that helps us learn about life, explain life, and explore within ourselves to become better.  Being of Irish descent, being close to the Earth is a tradition that has been passed down to me.  A respect and honoring of God’s gifts.  Many spiritual people have this belief.  I also believe God speaks to us with His Spirit through these gifts.  It is that one conversation with the Spirit that allows your soul to gain so much!  God can tell you many things.  He can give you many insights.  So—-if you are afraid you are not hearing from God, when your moment of nature arises—-you need to stop!  Listen and feel Him soak your soul!

The Matriarch

Her neck and head are held so straight and high.

Proud and protecting her home.

When her eyes meet yours,

She touches something in your soul.


Some say she is your totem or your fetishe.

Where the Spirit speaks to you through her.

Her presence says peace be with you.

Her confidence tells you to be strong.


I know whatever the moment is-

It is so tender.

It is so reassuring.

She provides you with a spiritual base.


The only movement between you and her is when

She gently wiggles her ears

Or she slightly swishes her fluffy, white tail.

Also the only sound is your breath

Holding in every second of awe.

Because you are afraid the moment will pass.


Sure enough then as delicately and quietly as she comes by,

She says goodbye.

This is what it feels like to be with a true aristocrat.

Or how it is to be with the queen in her court.


This is what it feels like to be with a true, confident woman.

A woman that would lay down her life for those she loves.

Whether you are my spirit guide or my angel or my watcher,

Thank you for being my matriarch.
