    The Pilgrim

    In shadowed place, by shadows bound
    Where Shadows move, but make no sound
    A moment's wait brings clear to sight
    The borderland of Day and Night.

    Upon this plain of place between,
    With Dawn's horizon sharp and keen,
    A Shadow paused on shadowed way
    To see the kingdom of the Day.

    He found a world of many hues
    Unlike the oceanic blues
    That ruled the realm of shadows deep;
    The place that is the home to sleep.

    The Shadow Pilgrim felt the air,
    Knew sights and sounds and textures fair.
    He heard the words the waking speak;
    Felt sunlight fall on Shadow cheek.

    Green of forest! Tawn of grain!
    The sizzling scent of Summer rain.
    Beauty in her daylit guise
    Brought shadow tears to shadow eyes.

    But swiftly . . . far too soon, it seems . . .
    Daylight gave away its dreams.
    With sad precision shadows know,
    He marked the fading sunset glow.

    Then Shadow left the world so bright,
    Returning to the arms of Night.
    And never spoke a shadow word;
    Nor ever shadow footstep heard.

    But night would never wear as old,
    And stars would never shine so cold.
    For all, he knows, has much to say;
    And Night's the other half of Day.

    . . . In shadowed place by shadows bound,
    A thoughtful shadow may be found,
    Who casts what shadows as he might;
    A Shadow with a soul of Light.
    That's beautiful! I like it.

    ^As an NF, Id like to add that I like the fact that you can emotionally 'connect' with every living being on the planet, which Paganism very much facilitates. On top of that, it offers a multitude of perspectives which all interlink like a web to universally understand the Universe. It is individualism celebrated unity. Perfect.

    Why do you choose to refer to yourself as a "witch," and associate yourself with the religion and structure of Wicca?

    "Witch" is a term with complex meanings. Most neopagans use the term to describe themselves, so it is based on convention and to denote the following characteristics, as well as to be in solidarity with the people who were persecuted in the middle ages. Witch has historically been used to refer to people who could be categorized as wise people of the village, or shamans. They included healers, diviners, oracles, midwives, and the priesthood (and most of the time the same people did all of these things). The pagan priesthood and village wise woman/medicine man would often be skilled at conflict resolution and psychology. They would read signs in nature, have prophetic dreams and interpret the dreams of others, and understand plants and animals more than the average person. I want to develop these skills in myself in order to live in harmony with the world and reality.

    I study Wicca because it provides me with a network of people who are more skilled in these things than I am, and who can help me develop myself to my full potential having certain mystical talents. I know I could do it on my own, and I don't have blind loyalty to any group as humans and their structures are flawed. I learn what I can from different places. As I've said, I'm mostly in it for the teaching and the communal experience of the divine. And I like the idea of being recognized as a priestess. That I would have to do through a Wiccan system.

    Nope. Sorry. I don't do magic on other people. You'll have to do it yourself.

    In some ways. Except I believe in things which actually exist. Which I realize is arguable. So, fair point.
