Keli Tomlin 'Autumn Equinox: Harvesting Shadows and Sunlight'

The Sun is behind us, the dark lies ahead, Come now the Winter, set the Summer to its bed. Time now to harvest, to reap and to store, Gather up your harvest and step through the door.   As the darkness and light settle into balance for the Autumnal Equinox, I walk with an eye

Owl Light

Owl illustration and poem by Nimue Brown   Owl light, as we slip silently towards The end of day and sun comes soft and subtle, A honey kiss on leaf and Cotswold stone, Gilding the final hours, even as shadows Curve into valleys and stretch out long, Comfortable limbs, their backs to these hills And
