WATER DREAM #1 and #2

Red Dragon waters have flowed time immemorial through Glastonbury's Sacred Well
I drink from the free tap outside the Healing Gardens
The water is rich in copper and seems rich red rust
Each pilgrim's year,I bring back waters for my Wiccan friends
who value water and its medicinal qualities.We drink as pilgrims do-
according to need and opportunity.Waters refresh us/our spirits rise.

This year,the White Waters are opened,with Guardians present
Altars of apples,candles,flowers to elemental gods and goddesses
Two women enter-one steps in to the waters-sings to the other
Bell chapel purifies her sound reflected by the waters
In the well above which feeds this lower,a naked man with dragon tattoos
raises his invoking arms to the spirits of water and of cave,of shadow and of light
I drink the waters ,and leave with white waters inside
