I am a beautiful flower called the “Plakasah” (Azalea), I am of frills and tendrils, a gentle soul, a lovely one. I am the flower of the sun, the one my soul mates give to me on mother’s day, for I am the one who made the beautiful earth, and they, think this is one of the loveliest.Continue reading “Goddess of Spring: Aine”
