Merry Meet my witchy friends! Hope this finds all of you well and happy. My hubby and I celebrated 31 years of marriage this week and decided to take a quick trip to our cabin in the Smoky Mountains for a few days. It has been a whirlwind trip but fun and we’ve enjoyed our “alone” time together very much..especially in the mountains which sing to me, calm me and make me feel very small in this big world. The weather has been hot but not too humid and the evenings cool down nicely.
It is also the Full Moon and seeing the Full, bright Moon hanging over the dark mystical mountains at night is something I treasure..I can feel Her pull, Her energy, Her connection with the mountains and with me. My body feels tingly and light just looking at Her. I am blessed to get to see this….By the way, this moon picture was taken by me last night..thru the trees over the cabin! Breathtaking!
In the darkening sky, if you cast your eyes,
You will see the silver lady rise,
Bathing the world in a steely blue
Edged with a haunting, silver hue.
Higher and higher she rises with grace,
Shrouding the trees in a cloak of lace,
Sending her rays to the waters below,
Casting reflections in ripple and flow.
Oh, such a majesty gracing the sky,
Passing a twinkle to stars riding high,
Oh, what a magickal sight we purvey
From dusk, till the night gives in to day.
And so, she sinks in horizons west,
Content in the knowledge that we saw her best,
She’ll return once again when the sky turns black,
And if you should whisper, she might whisper back.
Love this poem and had to share it. We are leaving to go home tomorrow and I look forward to seeing my daughters, cats, home and yes, I’ve missed my facebook friends! LOL…I knew I was addicted..and yes, I most definitely am. 🙂
Before I left home I made up a batch of Lavender Toner….thought I ‘d share the very easy recipe here for you all to enjoy..
1 cup witch hazel
1 TB dried lavender buds
6 drops lavender essential oil
Mix together in a lidded glass jar and shake well. Store in a dark place and shake everyday for 2 weeks. Then, pour thru a cheesecloth to strain buds…pour into a mister bottle or lidded bottle that you can use with a cotton ball…Enjoy!
*I doubled this recipe by the way.
It smells divine and feels so refreshing.
I hope that you all will spend some time with the Full Moon..and bless the Goddess for her gifts she has given to you. May you all have a beautiful Esbat..
