Give Me Three Fires


Give me three Fires
Point the corners
To the edges
Of the world

Pour oblations
To the flames:
Blazing as the Priest
With the flames;
In purity defend,
The face of the Astral Flame.

You are the Fire
Priest and Power
You are the First Fire
You are the Consumer
You are the Nexus

A Fire deep in the Earth
Heart of the Mother;
A Fire high on the Heavens
Heart of the Sky;
A Fire in the Dark Forest;
Heart of the Priest

Give gifts to all creatures,
Transmute them and make them into
Pour waters into streams
And rivers;
Add wood to the First Fires,
The Fires of Creation.

I have seen the flames
Deep in the heart of the forest;
Rise from the vessel
Of the Shining One.
Tended by the Fire Priest
And a living homage
To the God who is Fire

I have seen the flames
Deep in the heart of the Earth;
Rise as lava,
Molten and Holy,
In the heart of the Earth Mother,
The furnace of creation,
Where all is created
And all is consumed.

I have seen the flames
Rise in the morning,
Red in the morning sky,
The face of Creation,
Nurtured by the Dawn,
Lifted in reverence to
The bluest sky;
Burn now,
Burn in darkness,
Burn in light,
The furnace in the Sky
Coming into being
Being ever-lasting
Being the Light in the Dark
And the Darkness that is light

Give me three Fires,
The Vedas begin with This Fire
Scriptures repeated
Today and always
From corner to corner
All points of the compass
Shine in the shadow of Three Fires.

Blessed Beltaine/Samhain to one and all
