Standing on the precipice of possibility

Like a nestling

Flexing neophyte wings

For the first time

Nameless obscurity

Clouds the landscape where all will be known and understood

Benumbing fear

Intoxicating joy


As I spread my wings

And jump into the future

Bio.: My name is Rhosyn Gwyn, and I am a mother, a daughter, a sister, a story teller, a music maker, a student, a teacher…the list goes on. I am also a new Sister in the Sisterhood of Avalon, having started my orientation in May of 2014. I have always had a love for all things Celtic, primarily Irish Celtic, so when the Barge called, I was ready to set sail. My poem is how I felt when I made the decision to part the mists and join the Sisterhood. It was something so new to me; I had so many different feelings going through me at once.

Over time, the SOA has evolved to become a Sisterhood in truth, united in disciplined work and dedication, and committed to re-establishing women's connections to a strong Celtic-based Western tradition. Through study, research, and personal workings we are once again recalling our heritage.
