love and peace to you all this special day.

interesting that the Celtic word for assembly is samani or samoni,
and the Sanskrt word for assembly or together is "sam", used in an early Hindu incantation to sing and pray together - showing the ancient ties to our rituals across the earth.

samhain is also my older daughter's birthday.

blessed be

CYCLE
   
    The night weeps gentle tears for the dying day
    leaves in mourning again
    the season of dying upon us
    almost without warning
    seems only yesterday it was flowers all the way
    promising a bright tomorrow
    in its sparkling April showers
    and now blackberries,in black,
    burying the year
    a breath at a time.

    Harvest moon and first frosts
    Octobers icy breath announces
    Funeral games for Samhain
    Christians "All Hallows" but its worth
    is known to ancient
    Celts burying the Sun
    like gold 'till Spring
    can summon it forth
    with Beltane fires.

    But now rain,punctuating the summer
    comma,colon:stop.
    Quiet and unrelenting                     
    at the edge of thought
    time,bleeding down the window,
    invites the eye back
    into the past.

    To dwell on how things were
    or might have, or might, still be.
    Resist diversion,
    Time is now,
    and now is all you have
    and rain is only rain,
    and Autumn
    glorious and real
    and here.

Blessed be

Magic


The doorways between light and dark
flesh and spirit
the living and the dead
Always tenuous at best
cross-bolted by our haste and reason
This Night are opened wide
and what goes out and what comes in
we catch out of the corners of our eyes
dream images scurrying in moonshade
footsteps betrayed by the crackle of fallen leaves
and the quickening of breath.
The breeze that stirs the branches
carries Winter at his back
and the moon upon his shoulders
The Holy Night is solemnized
by echoing laughter of children
in spectral guises on suburban lawns
begging for small pieces
of Magic

And this, from a poster in the Museum in Boscastle...

Approach without fear.
you who know me in your heart,
For I speak to you
with the voices of the winds
and the shoreline
is the hem of my robe.

I am the breath of hope
which is born in the East
the Maiden,
the new morning,
the promise of spring.

Mine is the power
which burns in the South,
the Mother,
the midday warmth,
the blessings of summer.

I will draw you to me
As the day fades in the West,
the Wise Woman, the Healer,
The Mourner of the waning year.

And when bitter wind
blows from the North,
bidding life withdraw,
to rest, to dream,
I beckon you as Crone,
as the dark Mother,
the seed of life preserved
in the bare Earth,
from which you have been born
and will be born again.

Peace and blessings be with you all.

Mine is the power
which burns in the South,
The Mother,
the midday warmth,
the blessings of summer.

To all my friends at Samhain
both those I know or don't
peace to all to live as one
let us live as is our wont

Bright blessings to you all
On this turning of the year
and as the leaves do fall
let us banish all we fear

So to life i propose a toast
Good cheer to those alive
Thank you to the ones passed
good luck to those to come

wishing love and good happiness stuff to you all

It is now 12:30am in the UK and the spirits have re-crossed the bridge back into their world and us into ours. Libations have been taken and cake passed around the circle for another year. May this winter be only dark because of the season, may you all have light in your hearts and may that light shine out.

To all that remain and to those whom we have known and have returned to the earth

Blessed be.

We too drank to them. We also drank to ourselves as it was our 18th unwedding anniversary. How auspicious.

I'm sorry, I misread Mingulays post as 'librarians have been taken' and was wondering why I was never invited to those sorts of parties when I was a librarian....

Blessings all, and here's to a better new year.
