Hail the merry Season!
A boost for love & joy
time to shout out loud, ablaze
A very merry holiday
to each and all I say!
Soaring day, far into greater space,
where kindly constellations
tell stories of joy, sparkling grace.
Miraculous day to carry like inspiring song,
melodies layered through ages.
Welcoming evening lights,
cozy homes, familiar rites,
recall of feasts, merry meets, gift of returning friends
evoke deep breath of peace, belonging, generous amends.
Raise high the revelry.
Ascend into muse-ways, space for effulgent play,
as if myths foretell our lives.
Goddess of Night
from celestial firepit
the potency of stars’
Far, in green glade mists
where sacred hymns are born,
primordial chthonic gods commingle,
frolic with merry sprites conjured.
Winter nights can exude that vibrant beauty,
so poignant, wild and overwhelming.
Cold breath waking primal life.
Gazing into the stars to welcome
the clear, icy surrounding of spirit.
Winter blessed to inspire us beyond
The essence of who we are —
living world dependent on
a star for light and warmth, for energy.
Ceremonies carry myth to shape awareness.
Beauty’s sacred well
expands metaphoric cells with
water of bliss and contemplation.
Sacred vessels aching to be filled,
dip in with grace, good will, drink deeply,
copious draughts of ecstasy.
This is not belief or even knowing.
This is breath of awe in motion.
Rare and wonderful, the essence of beauty,
it is in our vital core to listen.
The more we listen, awe, compassionate wisdom takes hold,
we become attuned. We become the voice of welcome,
of familiar kind regard.
Cherished, merry soul
dancing the golden mountain trail,
reveling in freezing rain and snow,
tasting the bite without bitterness…
If only we could reach into
reach out in simple empathy.
If only we could simply be
lost in beauty and laughter,
like joyful fire sprites dancing warmth
into this Winter’s night.
Coalescence of blessings —
Smell virgin snow, spice and roast,
pine laced fire.
Meet make-believe elves to tell
Delegation of peace, these moments
gifted with meaning,
The innocent joy of uncomplicated affection,
of passionate beatific dance to a sacred drum.
The horizon shifts through daily duties and nightly prayers.
We take what we can. We give
dear wishes for a future where convivial peace abides
