Spring has arrived at The Goddess House

I came back from a weekend away to find that amongst an increasing display of purple, one white iris has emerged.  My purple Dutch irises have been delighting me since late June when they started to spike ... but now, with other colours emerging, this is certainly a sign that Persephone is returning from the Underworld and Spring is on its way.

Almost ironically however my other Spring flowers, the jonquils, daffs and freesias have yet to make an appearance. 

As the weather warms, I am reminded of a poem about Demeter's quest penned by the late Shekhinah Mountainwater ...

All golden now
She springs to the earth
And alights to turn the brown grasses green
Her Mother's tears mix with Her own
And fall to make the green more green ...

Great Goddess Isis

Great Goddess Isis

Exhortation of Isis

You are She in the dust of whose feet is the hosts of Heaven,
Whose body encircles the Universe,
Who turns the Earth in its orb,
Who gives light to the Sun,
Who rules the World.

You tread death underfoot.
To Thee, the stars are responsive,
To Thee the seasons turn and the Gods rejoice
And the elements are in subjugation.

You are She that is the natural Mother of all things,
Mistress and governor of all elements,
The initial progeny of worlds,
Chief of Divine powers,
Queen of Heaven,
Principle of all the Gods celestial and the light of Goddesses.

At Your will are disposed the planets of the air,
The wholesome winds of the seas
And the silences of the unseen world.
