Day 3- a taste of metal


Chalice Well water tastes of iron

But I think it is the blood of the Goddess of Blacksmiths
Seeping through the veins of the earth

To nourish those who are awake
To the transmission of power and nutrients from her heart
To ours.

Exploring poetry in all its forms.


  1. I love this: "...the blood of the Goddess of Blacksmiths
    Seeping through the veins of the earth..." The first thing that came to mind was my grandfather, who was not a blacksmith, but a coal miner looking for sustenance for his family in the veins of the earth. Thank you. xoA

  2. Well done! I know what I'll think about next time I drink water from a well. There's a lovely myth-like quality to your poem.

  3. Nice use of myth - My favorite line Seeping through the veins of the earth

  4. Love the imagine of a Goddess Blacksmith!

  5. Great use of story with this form! I want to point to a favorite part, but I can't. It's all perfectly chosen and placed!

  6. My favorite line is also "seeping through the veins of the earth." Beautiful!

  7. Female empowerment, Mother Gaia at her finest. I love the energy it brings.

  8. Nicely done. As someone who has well water with the taste of iron, I am drawn to iron in water being nourishment.
