MWD: Who is She?

My Month of Written Devotion is starting just a bit late…


My Valley has so many names,
some famous, some obscure,
bestowed in written history,
all by Her conquerors.

The Valley of Oaks, of Santa Clara,
the Valley of Heart’s Delight,
the South Bay, Silicon Valley,
consumed by blinking lights.

What Her first people called Her
even they no longer know.
The name is lost to time and war
and pox. I call Her Home.


P.S. Lon is doing it too! 😀

About EmberVoices

Ember Cooke has been a member of Hrafnar and Seidhjallr for more than a decade, where she trained to be a Seidhkona, Galdrakona, and Gythia. She founded the Vanic Conspiracy and made ordination vows to the Vanir and her congregation in the summer of 2013. She has contributed to several publications on Heathen and Northern Pagan subjects and regularly presents rituals and workshops at festivals. Her personal practice is more diverse, as the Vanir have lead her into cross-training and service for the wider Pagan community. This has including medium and servitor training in American Umbanda, clergy training with the Fellowship of the Spiral Path, and jail ministry for local counties. She holds a BA with honors in Religious Studies from Santa Clara University. Ember has lived all her life in the south San Francisco Bay Area, and is intimately bound to the valley of her birth.
