Greenwood Marriage

Come, my lover, take ribbon in hand and dance the Maypole round,

Over and under the colors are woven brilliant and breathless in Spring’s warm light.

Come my lover and dance with me, circle the Beltane fires,

A wink and smile as you pass by to make sure that I catch your eye.

Come my lover and walk with me into the magic night

Into the dark and silent trees where our greenwood marriage bed awaits

Ostara Walks (by Cat)

Ostara Walks

 

Ostara Walks

Ostara walks in beauty

Ostara walks in hope

She is the dawn of springtime, and brings the world rebirth;

On gentle breeze her name is sung, nature is her choir.

Ostara walks in beauty

Ostara walks in joy

Her mantle is the new green grass, unfolding from the earth;

Laughter floating on the air, light, and silver shining.

Ostara walks in beauty

Ostara walks in grace

Unselfishly she shares her gifts, they heal the human soul;

Winters dark is banished, rebirth now takes its place.

Clouds and Sun

cloud sun

Clouds and sun set the mood.

I feel like the sun today; trapped behind that wall of darkness.

I fight to free myself and shine only to be blocked, covered, absorbed by something that should never be able to hold me. I’m tired and feel myself falter; weary.  I look to the sun for guidance. It is there, still bravely persevering to be free.

Through the sun and shadow, the Desert Goddess speaks to me:

Be easy my child. Find your sun-fire within! Nothing can stand against it. See how the sun triumphs over cloud? It is the same with you!

Heal yourself in the sacred fire of the soul and burn away the shadows and darkness that hold you. These embers will ignite and fill your heart and spirit with a blazing light like a thousand suns! All will be well child.

And the sun which has been hidden breaks free of its cloudy prison. The warmth floods my face and its healing rays fill my empty being. It sears my soul with hope and an aching desire to reach and grow and set myself free!

Thought For The Day: Dec. 20, 2019 “Welcome Winter”

A Yuletide Toast

See the Yule Log draped with holly, glossy green and scarlet hued;

Adorned with ribbons and with gifts that Mother Nature grew.

Shaped by hands both large and small, a labor of love and joy;

To celebrate The Sun’s rebirth and a brand new season to enjoy.

So gather round and raise a cup to toast both log and coming light;

We’ll keep our vigil by the fire on this the longest night.

Thinning (original poetry by Cat)

Thinning

The veil thins and the season thins as well………

Rising energy draws the life force from all of nature;

Leaving behind the drained and withered shells of what was…..

Today, the spirits of nature are dying…………

Receding within before succumbing to the dark sleep;

Lending their energy to the Otherworld as the veil thins……

Tomorrow, the door to the Hall of Ancestors opens…..

Voices born upon the wind, spectral yet reassuring;

Drifting gently like leaves upon the currents……

Power shimmers from heaven and earth……….

The veil thins further…growing, stretching and becomes taught;

Almost to breaking, the time of high magick is here..don’t blink…

As with all things, nothing is permanent………..

The moment passes, soundlessly sliding back into shape;

Thickening, spiraling out like ripples on a pond………

With a silent sigh, all of nature relaxes…….

Easing into dark slumber, to flow upon it’s natural course;

Resting, gaining strength, contemplating the coming cycle…

Walk Softly (by Cat)

Walk Softly

KODAK Digital Still Camera

Walk softly through the twilight~ feel the lavender-blue magick surround you, feel the breath of night, soft as fae wings as it eases the cares of the day.

Look softly through the twilight~ find the first stars in the lavender- blue, pinpoints of fairy light glitter softly in the canvas overhead. Fill your senses.

Stand softly in the twilight~ fill yourself with the lavender-blue magick, experience the essence and the heartbeat of the coming night.

Feel the magick, Be the magick~ Walk softly through the twilight.

Winters death is banished, it’s a time for rebirth and growth.

Release and Let Go

Little Park Rd. (C) LBolotin

A hidden spot on a sunny day. The scent of snow and cold red earth. A place for peace and reflection. A time to clear the mind and the spirit. 


Little Park Rd. 2 (C) LBolotin

Release ………… Let go ………….. cares and worries drift away on the breeze. Embrace the healing found and fill the heart with hope. Hold it close and treasure the moment.
