Some further reflections on LOVE and Celtic Spirituality
To begin, a short poem which demonstrates the Celtic fondness and focus on the power of Three
The Power of Three - A Short Celtic Poem
Three folds to the cloth, yet one napkin is there,
Three joints to the finger, but still only one finger fair;
Three leaves of the shamrock, yet no more than one shamrock to wear,
Frost, snowflakes and ice, all in water their origin share,
Three persons in God, to One God alone we make prayer.

On a more spiritual level, it has also been known to symbolize life, death, and rebirth. There are also several other meanings that basically boil down to one thing: three separate entities that are inter-connected in a constant flow of energy and love.
