Water Dragons, Serpents, & Snakes

especially the water serpents of Ireland in almost every river ... next session Sunday 23rd January 2022

about this afternoon session ...


Not exactly a Valentine's Day subject, or is it? Serpents are strongly related to fertility, both the fire and water kind. But maybe they are not romantic, yet sometimes romanticised in story.

Chinese New Year is on 12th February this year, also celebrated across the Indo-Chinese countries too, and the symbol of water dragons and fertility is a strong part of these celebrations. 

In Ireland too, there are water serpent stories for Imbolc and around this time of year. There's probably some kind of serpent story with every river and lough here. Again, more connected to fertility, though over the centuries storytellers have perhaps turned them into horror stories, fairy stories, and even hero stories. 

This nicely follows on from our sacred water and wells of Imbolc theme from last Sunday.  

Please offer to share your poems and stories of serpents in rivers and loughs of Ireland, Scotland, Wales and even England, or from the land you was raised, especially if your are Chinese, Thai, from Vietnam, Cambodia born etc.
