Soft moss and loam
Gives way softly underfoot
Pale sky that drips with moonlight
As you make your way
In the forest a Maiden, ever virgin
Stripped of your virtue
Stripped of your power
A handless wanderer
Invisible to the world
Hidden in a labyrinth of false power
Touch the earth to find the memories
Unpeel your heart
Make whole what is broken
Let clear water flow
Through the vast abyss of self, cleanse away
The mud that fills your
Blind and dumb
To your true power
Raise the voice to speak the word
Nurture the fire within
Draw round the circle of support
Pass the cord, draw the sword
Cast back the cloak
Climb the stairs and find the light
Grasp the fallen branch
Make it bloom
Woman’s wisdom sings
Nature is regenerated
Light the fire!

Interview Question #2
Christina has been having issues with facebook for quite some time. They have disabled two of her profiles without cause. This brings me to my next question for her.
Now that facebook has disabled two of your profiles, has this affected your writing and where are other places your friends and fans can find you on the net?
Well…. Yes, it has affected my writing temporarily because right now I'm spending the time, I would be using to write, to re-establish my connections on facebook. I lost all of my writing network of 1500+ people, my blog network, correspondence, photos, notes, everything. Some of it is elsewhere but a good deal can't be replaced.
My main Christina Brooks profile has been deleted and so has my Rune Tao Press page. People can find me still on facebook currently, under c. Mary Brooks. The url for the page is different since it was meant to be a private profile for friends-only, not networking. But I can be found either way: c.Mary Brooks or http://www.facebook.com/cm
I currently post most of my poetry and writing on MySpace under the name Rune Warrior and can also be found on Twitter, Outsider Writers, W.A.R.M., and Cleveland Poetics as a contributor. But I’ve not debuted anything on Cleveland Poetics just yet. Some of my poetry appears on 10K Poets on MySpace.
