Our present moment brought an art series I hadn’t anticipated...
Artwork exploring different ways of meditation, intention and prayer.
The piece Celtic Knot/Pagan Prayer
was inspired by a poem from the book Celtic Fire by Robert Van de Weyer.
This contemporary take on the Celtic knot is my interpretation of the ancient writing.
Celtic religion is pagan based,
and nature plays a large role in it.
I love the thought of nature’s energy being god or god like. It resonates.
The Celtic knot represented the intricacies of god’s love to the Celtic people.
The beautifully written poem ‘Celtic Fire’ follows the photo gallery below.
I am the wind that breathes upon the sea,
I am the wave on the ocean,
I am the murmur of the leaves rustling,
I am the rays of the sun,
I am the beam of the moon and stars,
I am the power of trees growing,
I am the movement of salmon swimming,
I am the courage of the wild boar fighting,
I am the speed of the stag running,
I am the strength of the ox pulling the plow,
I am the size of the mighty oak tree,
and I am the thoughts of all people who praise my beauty and grace.
-Celtic Fire, Robert Van de Weyer
