The Water Goddess

This painting is currently showing in the Courtyard Gallery, Midleton, Co. Cork. As always when I paint words come to me in the form of verse. This is what came to me when I was painting her.


You make your presence known

Whether you roar

like thunder in the waves

Or lap easily at the sea-shore

Whether you gush furiously

Along a fast flowing river

Carrying all before you

And in you

Or trickle gently

In a murmuring stream


I hear you

Just as the blood

Flows in my veins

So too, do you

Flow in the veins

Of the Great Mother

Bringing with you

Life of immeasurable
