We’Moon Holy Days: Seasonal Blessings

In each edition of the We’Moon datebook, we feature one Holy Day writer who shares with us her unique perspectives of each of the eight holy days. This year, we have the pleasure of sharing the work of Susa Silvermarie. Turned 70 in 2017 and began a new life as an immigrant to Mexico. She blogs, writes for several local publications and runs as weekly Write-to-a-prompt circle as well as a Writers Salon. She enjoys volunteering with an art program for Mexican children and truly loves her life on the shore of Lake Chapala. "Seeking local kindred spirits—come on down!"

The Fool

The Fool has followed me home,
in her coat of fresh delight—harlequin.

A cheerful choir of rainbow diamonds,
a thousand buttons close it.
She's sitting on the settee
opposite me, next to the dried sunflowers
that need flicking with a duster, or throwing out,
her happy little dog is grinning by her ankles.
She says: "I was born free,
on a beach, with giant turtles,
it was a very humbling experience." 
I snigger self consciously, I haven't got time for this,
I've got the 'to do' list to do, the bills to pay,
the hamster to take to market.

Markswoman Blessing

May you honor the fire
behind your eyes.
May you release the arrow.
May you love your art to life.

Ask the Dark Mother,
faceless in her beauty
to open the portal
of self-compassion
to those whose scars
keep them hidden.
excerpt © Jennifer Lothrigel 2016

 

Samhain

Maenad moon gathers all souls,
sends then dancing into the wind

Light dims, cold moves over, roots reach down to the core where life coheres. We draw inward, grow reflective, slow to the pace of dreaming and remembering.

Shhhh,
be still and watch
where Luna rises
like golden wheat
in the dark oven
of the sky

in the green arms of an apple tree

Summer Solstice

Pachamama entreats us to
restore her clean waters,
allow the singing of the birds
to bring peace to her skies,
renew cosmic harmonies
on our sacred land.
