THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “The Web of Wyrd”” by Lori Erickson: lessons, roots, spirit, foremother, coast, wisdom, string, realm, lines, unfolding, sending, healing

Some rocks unfolding in the mist
Sending wisdom and hope
Foremothers and fathers are missed
Seeing lines in the slope
Some lessons learned along the coast
Seeing spirits or perhaps ghost
Some lessons learned
Some lessons learned
As we commune with nature host

Some rocks unfolding in the mist
Strange rock formations
Reminds me of being first kissed
You gave me carnation
Roots of trust and healing unfold
Strings of realm to behold
Roots of trust
Roots of trust
Adorned with virtues manifold

Some rocks unfolding in the mist
Green horizon of trees
So peaceful glad they all exist
Leaves swaying in the breeze
Birds and bees fly from tree to tree
Full of glee as they are all free
Birds and bees fly
Birds and bees fly
Count our blessing we all agree*

* The Trijan Refrain, created by Jan Turner, consists of three 9-line stanzas, for a total of 27 lines. Line 1 is the same in all three stanzas, although a variation of the form is not to repeat the same line at the beginning of each stanza. In other words, the beginning line of each stanza can be different. The first four syllables of line 5 in each stanza are repeated as the double-refrain for lines 7 and 8. The Trijan Refrain is a rhyming poem with a set meter and rhyme scheme as follows:

Rhyme scheme: a/b/a/b/c/c/d,d refrain of first 4 words of line five /c

Meter: 8/6/8/6/8/8/4,4 refrain/8
