I know how hard it can be

to have the ones you love

disagree and fight,

to know there is not much you can do,

and yet know you must try.

Because I know that,

above all,

Peace and Love

are worth the tears

and the blood you put into it.

I know the heartbreak

of talking to one,

and then the other,

to have them meet,

find common ground

But, yet, I know there

are times when it is

in vain,

and at the end…….

I know what you are left with –

the sadness, the broken heart,

the tears, and yet

knowing that I,

and you,

would do it all again.

    Thank you for this, Susan Morgaine. So many of us know the pain of seeing those we love separate and even fall out at times. Lady Branwen knows pain. And she knows ours. Thank you, sister, for a lovely piece. Elisa

  • The Sisterhood of Avalon

    TriskeleThe Sisterhood of Avalon (SOA) was founded in 1995 to serve as a receptacle of lore and wisdom for all aspects of the study of Avalon, as well as to act as a medium for community building for all who are beckoned to Her shores. 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.
