Oak ~ Eik ~ Duir

Today I met Oak as I searched for a cool place in the heat. Duir is the seventh letter of the Ogham tree alphabet, it is in the second five Ogham, corresponding to the letter D which means Oak (Quercus robur). Duir means solidity, steadfastness, strength and courage and protection.Oak is the doorway.

Duir essence gives strength and vigour, it opens portals to other places and realms, it offers us opportunity. Young oak teaches us hope, old oak reminds us to stay flexible. Go, enter the doorway and go into the new day!


oak Vandaag ontmoette ik Eik toen ik op zoek was naar een koele plaats in de hitte. Duir is de zevende letter van het  Ogham alfabet, in de tweede serie van vijf Ogham, overeenkomend met de letter D, die eik (Quercus robur) betekent.Duir betekent stevigheid, standvastigheid, kracht en moed en bescherming.

Oak is de deuropening.

Duir essentie geeft kracht en groeikracht, het opent poorten naar andere plaatsen en rijken en biedt ons de openingen.

Jonge eik leert ons hopen, oude eik herinnert ons er aan om flexibel te blijven.

Ga door die deur en ga een nieuwe dag in!

Oak reminds me of ravens.When finally the ravens reached the old forest where the congress was held, some of the tenseness left them as they wheeled and dived and rolled with old friends.As the sun warmed the air and lifted the last remaining wisps of cloud, the white raven and her escorts arrived and circled down to the highest bough of the ancient oak. There were over four hundred birds at the conspiracy and when the great leader was settled the congress fell quiet.

There is a lot to tell about Duir, some other day and time Er is veel te vertellen over Eik, op een andere keer
