Ashes to Ashes

 

ASHES TO ASHES
 From roots firmly planted in ground,
 entwined in earth’s heavenly surrounds.
 Courting flashes of lightening strikes,
 dear hallowed tree of sacred rites.
 

 World tree Yggdrasil of Druids staff,
 what you offer will come back.
 Pillar of strength, balance and fertility,
 magickal inspirations of ingenuity,
 

 Awareness of your self in the world,
 is how interconnectedness returns.
 Like casting stones into a pond,
 creating ripples swirling on and on.
 

 I am a spirit tree said the Ash,
 ‘what you offer will come back’
 Stand headstrong, in eye of storm,
 into conflicts, never be drawn.
 

 Be grounded and of belonging,
 this is how spirit of light gets in.

Ash is the world tree, Yggdrasil. This is a symbol of passage between the worlds, creativity and connections, as the world tree connects us all. It reminds us we should be mindful of our actions because for each action there is a consequence that can effect others as well as ourselves.

Journey through Yggdrasil

Yggdrasil Midgard (Old Norse: “Miðgarðr”) “middle earth” is located in the middle of the world, below Asgard. Midgard and Asgard are connected by Bifrost the Rainbow Bridge. Midgard is surrounded by a huge ocean that is impassable.

The Ocean is occupied by a huge sea serpent, the Midgard Serpent. The Midgard serpent is so huge that it encircles the world entirely, and biting its own tail. Odin and his two brothers Vili and Ve created the humans from an Ash log, the man and from an elm log, the woman.
