A blessed Samhain to all my friends observing today and this evening.
For all the rest of you Halloweenies, have fun, be safe, give candy to teenagers, say ‘thank you’, smile at your neighbours, look out for little ones and don’t be a spoil sport!
Children deserve all the magic we can muster up for them.
M orning sunlight is the visual canvas
A rt of fronds in greens and golds
I ridescence brushes each surface
D rawing Bruges-like shadows
E merald embroidery in the air
N ature outside may slumber
H ere in the warmth of my home
A iry pinna capture the essence
I n feathery greenery that whispers
R eturn she will, keep faith
F or this is the joy of the indoor garden
E veryday magick is the Circadian
R eminding that summer is just out of sight
N o further than The Wheel’s revolution

Kiss my winter weary eyes with green…

Vervain my crown
The veil becomes thinner
The Holly King resumes his throne

Oh beautiful man!
My most precious Love
You are here at last
Sent with warmth from above
I’ve tarried to long in this frozen hell
I have ached for your touch
Flayed with torturous constraint
Endured so much
Lovers perfidious, foolish or young
Left my true self in chains
The sight of you, my Green Man
Fire streaks through my veins
One kiss my darling
With your lips like wine
Bring me into your sunlight
I shall make you mine
