Merry Meet friends! It’s Here! Samhain weekend! The world is full of busy happy witches right now.
There are feasts and bonfires, cooking and brewing, trick or treating and costumes, spells and rituals, Dumb suppers and quiet time with our loved ones who have passed. The veil is thin, the quarter moon shines, and it’s the Witches New Year!! My post is short as I will be a very busy witch the next few days also! I fell in love with this poem and thought it says how we are all feeling at this magickal time of year.
The wheel has turned, the wheel of light,
stoke the fire and make it bright…
Samhain call, samhain come,
feel the rhythm , hear the drum..
.The veil it thins, the veil it shrouds,
the spirits rise upon darkened cloud…..
The time of orange , time of black,
time to move forward and not look back…
.Pumpkin lit , with candle burn,
away dark spirits this guardian turns…..
Night of the ancients, night of the olds,
remembered in stories now to be told…..
The Crone doth rise upon this night,
look into the shadows without a fright…..
Rituals and rites across the lands,
empowers the soul where they stand….
Trick or treat, heal or curse ,
the hand should be crossed from a silver purse…….
The Wheel begins its time anew,
the release of the old for the knowledgeable few….
The time to scry to see the path we must take,
and of the choices we need to make….
She comes to us in many guises
the Crow and the owl her favourite disguises….
The Earth gives us her last to give,
the bountiful harvest so we can live…
We feast and drink in a sacred space,
behind samhain masks to hide our face…..
Through darkened day and moonlight night
All hallows Eve is a beautiful sight…..
