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!"

In Celebration of Sagittarians: Keepers of the Ember

Posted by on in SageWoman Blogs

Keepers of the Flame © Denise Kester 2011

Dream: ...I am in a crowd of people, and I hear a telephone ringing. Someone answers the phone and hands it to me and says, “It’s for you.” I say “hello,” and the person on the other end is a woman, and she says, “I am calling from the Hopi Nation. The ember is in the canoe. The time is now.”

The canoe carries precious cargo through flood-high waters in a desert land. The time is upon us and we are in this boat together, grateful that we are not alone.

The keepers are guided by helpers who send signals ahead.
They know the way by how it feels in their bodies.
It is a feeling of resonance that they follow.
The keepers are the guardians of the precious ember.

The ember will spark the imagination, allowing the slow burn of ideas to ignite and become clear harbingers of creative solutions for a troubled land.
