Time is a Hen

“Time is a hen, the stars are the eggs she has laid.”

Hens and roosters feel like obvious fairy tale animals to me, though it turns out there are very few stories specifically about them. I associate them with domestic magick and witches without knowing where the association comes from.  Henwives and Goose Girls might be one source, Baba Yaga’s chicken-footed hut might be another.  These didn’t feel sufficient all by themselves, so I did some digging. The above quote comes from a rich source I found about the symbolism of chickens in Bulgarian folklore, and it ultimately inspired this piece.
