copper strands glimmer

as the goddess arises

good morning

From the Zephyranthes bulb
Sprout the fairy lilies
Ready to dance in the rain
And make magic-dilys

#AtoZchallenge #NaPoWriMo U: Uisce

Tugann uisce beatha a síol;
Tugann uisce beatha a dhuille;
Tugann uisce beatha a dath;
Tugann uisce beatha a bláth;
Tugann uisce beatha ar an ngairdín;
Tugann uisce beatha a aoibh gháire.

(translation)
Water gives life to a seed;
Water gives life to a leaf;
Water gives life to color;
Water gives life to a flower;
Water gives life to the garden;
Water gives life to a smile.
