A spell of remembering and roses

Feb 13th, 2018 | By

I stood at the edge of water and scraped away land I stood at the edge of what was and what is now the waves of grief are palpable the memories too many to capture too many to hold so I go to the water that knows how to hold to rock and to cradle

Hekate Einalian Devotional

Jan 20th, 2018 | By

Hekate Einalian Thank you for safe passage You showed your power The ship shook with rage With passion With strength With joy The waves crashed in Just the right places Making the smooth crossing A hectic horror For those with seasickness Even some who had Never suffered previously Clutched their twisting tummies But the cabin

Moon Bard – February

Feb 8th, 2016 | By

February ….. Spring is here, so they say; still the long and dreaming nights persist for a while but the returning light is opening up the landscape once more. ESTUARY. The eye widens for lack of corners In this long lapped, sea soaked landscape, Or squints, in grit of squall, Across the empty marsh, That

January Moon Bard

Jan 4th, 2016 | By

January …. Supposedly the coldest month … supposedly. So I thought some sparks of poetry to keep the cold at bay ….. Haiku. A Blackbird bathing; Creating micro rainbows In flying water. Hedgerow prickle-pig, Traveling the rooted route; Worms creep, warily. The great wanderer; Winter, wrapped within your skin And snow ball bear cubs. The

Moon Bard – December

Dec 16th, 2015 | By

December …. The world waits for the gift of light to return and wears the winter as best it can. YULE. This path leads to a golden gift. The sun breaks free of winters icy rath, Unwraps the lengthening of days, And gives the light of life Once more to earth. Yet still, that bright

Moon Bard November

Nov 6th, 2015 | By

November …. Winter draws around us and the time of dreaming, myth and hearth stories draws us in. SEASONS TURN. The flame of autumn fades, And nature’s hearth dies down To colours of the earth; The ochred glow of life, Blown out of trees, To gutter on the ground; Through the ember months of winter,

Moon Bard – September

Sep 8th, 2015 | By

September …….. the border lands of the seasons turning …….. ideas and images HOLLOW WAY. Listen to the misty whispers of the wood, The ghostly voice of all its ancient roots; Tread the brown leaf ground of mast and mold, As calling crow, cracks open winters door; Climb the mound, where once the oak tree

Moon Bard – August

Aug 10th, 2015 | By

August …. Time of first harvests and the quickening of winter’s return … of ancient magics and the dying of things.      LAMMAS. This path leads To the fields of rippling gold;   The summer lands Of mouse and wren, Must now go down Before the scythe, To make the bread To break in

Moon Bard – July

Jul 12th, 2015 | By

July ….. just a couple this month … thinking of the Solstice just gone and the winter that’s yet to come. GATHERING. Under dark waves rolling Come ancient, ocean wanderers Singing to the World Tree in the night; Emerald branches weave and waver Through the still and frozen starlight, And greenly glint across the land
