The creation of poetry is important. Being able to state what you perceive in poetic form is an important part of the process of working with the cauldrons and transforming their contents. The poetry itself generates a great amount of magical energy that in turn provides a context for information and power, This tea ritual becomes the ritual through which power flows.
The Cauldron of Poesy was constructed in the 7th century CE by an Irish poet. It was later preserved in the 16th century then discovered and titled. The Cauldron of Poesy as the poem speaks of three spiritual centers as cauldrons.
The first is Coire Goriath, translated as the Cauldron of Warming, Incubation, Maintenance or Sustenance. Coire Ermai, the second, is the Cauldron of Vocation or Motion. Coire Sois, the third, is called the Cauldron of Knowledge or of Wisdom. Most translators believe all three cauldrons are present at birth, but one interpretation is that each cauldron is only born or generated within us when we are ready.
Each cauldron can be in one of three positions: upright, tilted, or inverted. The position indicates the ability of a cauldron to function. An upright cauldron can hold and 'cook' its ingredients; a tilted cauldron allows its contents to slip away or to be filled; an inverted one loses everything.
The Coire Ermai distributes wisdom at birth and throughout in their youth. This cauldron isborn upright, ready to hold the sustaining broth of our life and health. The Coire Goriath is never upright at birth. This cauldron starts out on its side. This cauldron does not hold a specific kind of knowledge, but rather the fire of knowledge which is inspiration.
The Coire Sois is filled with what we inherit from our ancestors, by spiritual gifts, and by life experience. The poem says this cauldron will be upside down in the unenlightened, on its side in poets, and upright in those who are masters of poetry. The poem makes clear that anyone, no matter how low his or her birth, can develop the position and contents of this cauldron through effort.
It is the experiences of sorrows and joys in life that turn the cauldrons. It is implied that few will be able to achieve the activation of all three cauldrons. Also, once a cauldron is turned, there is no reason to believe that it will stay permanently in one position. The cauldrons are always in motion. Entering a new emotional state may turn a cauldron upright, or it may tip it back onto its side or its lips.
