I woke with the smellb2ap3_thumbnail_58639012_2319362924942583_1704575264542949376_o.jpg
of Belfire still in my hair
and knelt in a circle
of hawthorn and roses
to bless my brow, cheeks,
and neck with dew.
I heard the sound of
hooves on leaf and stone
and saw three deer leaping
away through the woods.
I lifted my arms to sun
exhilarated with wild enchantment.
What a blessing it is to live
right here, right now.

Good May Morning!

This week you might wish to pick or buy flowers for your home, to add touches that give you a sense of warmth and hominess, or light candles or diffuse oils near you while you go about your household tasks.

“What greater praise can I give you than to call you green? Green, rooted in light, shining like the sun that pours riches on the wheeling earth; incomprehensible green, divinely mysterious green, comforting arms of divine green protecting us in their powerful circle…”b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_5184.jpg

 --Hildegard of Bingen

There is a companion audio for this post available here.

And, a free May Magic Ritual Kit here.

May we be green,
may we each be healed by flowers,
time to ourselves to sit on the earth and sing,
and the simple, everyday beauties
and miracles that surround us each day.


Happy Beltane!
