More on lucky clover ~
So the odds of a four-leaf clover existing are estimated to be 1 mutation to 10,000 normal three-leaf clovers. As mentioned yesterday, the rare occurrence makes them special. (Sort of like how platinum occurs less frequently than aluminum, so that ring is worth more than your Pepsi can.) Each leaf on the four-leaf clover represents something: one for faith, one for hope, one for love, and one for luck. But there was a time when humble three-leaf clover held its own special meaning.
To the ancient Celts, the three leaves represented the goddess triads, that is, it represented the Mother of All in three divine forms or aspects — the Maiden, the Mother, and the Crone. It represented the the cycle of all things — birth, life, and death. The beginning, middle, and end. The past, present, future. To the Celts, carrying a clover talisman allowed you a measure of protection from malevolent spirits that brought hardship, illness and harm (another 3!) . These things of ill-will were made visible by the clover charm and if you could see them, you could avoid them.
After the Christian church appropriated the Celtic charm, it became associated with the Trinity — father, son, and holy ghost. This association is said to have been devised by St Patrick himself.
I love words and choose them as carefully as an artist might choose a color. My active imagination compels me to write everything from children’s stories to historical nonfiction. As a persnickety leisure reader, I especially enjoy novels that feel like they were written just for me. It’s hard to explain, but if you’ve ever read one of those, then you know what I mean. I tend to sneak symbolism and metaphor into my writing. You might say it’s a game I play with myself when I write. And I so love when readers email to say they’ve found something. I’d like people to feel my stories were written just for them, for that’s the truth. These hidden insights are my gift to my readers.
