The natural size of a coven is one,
and we are
one Motherly Maiden,
one Youth-Filled Crone,
one Me (wicked dark)
(with word and deed),
we bring balance
into our coven of one…
my Weird Sisters and Me.
Process Note: “The natural size of a coven is one” is a direct quote from Witches Abroad, the third book of Terry Pratchett’s Witches, also the twelfth of his Discworld Series. Pratchett’s satirical writing is filled with wit that leaves readers roaring madly… and thinking critically.
A Later Note (added 8/8/15): When I first published this poem, I said that the quote came from Wyrd Sisters. I bet Pratchett and DEATH found it funny.
