Carnival of Homeschooling – April Fool’s Edition!

Catechism for a Witch’s Child

When they ask to see your gods 
your book of prayers 
show them lines drawn delicately with veins 
on the underside of a bird’s wing
 tell them you believe
 in giant sycamores mottled and stark 
against a winter sky
 and in nights so frozen 
stars crack open 
spilling streams of molten ice to earth
 and tell them how you drink 
a holy wine of honeysuckle 
on a warm spring day 
and of the softness 
of your mother who never taught you
 death was life’s reward 
but who believed in the earth
 and the sun 
and a million, million light years 
of being
