A Prayer to the Lunar Eclipse

new-moon-1

I had forgotten about you.

But you were always there.

Still,

a speck of something that never

went away.

Maybe I forgot

about you

because I was too afraid

to face the darkness that still lingered

behind my closed door.

You don’t serve me though.

You don’t make my days full

or wondrous.

And so,

upon this time

where the Moon’s bright face

is shadowed,

I ask for the strength

to let you go.

To move through

to a new place,

a wilder, freer place.

Even as the black falls across

the White Orb as full as can be,

the constant

guiding light of our Mother’s Nighttime Face

is ever there.

Bright One, Shadowed One

who asks that I look deep,

bless upon me

the Truth,

the Magick,

the Power.

I am ready to face you,

to see you for what you are,

to let you pass through

me.

Sweet Moon,

I heed your message.

I face the closet door,

and I see the Shadow,

and I am One Light

too strong to be diminished.

Blessed Be.

Earth Mother

Dedicated to She who is bigger than name.

Her breath lies over me,

soft, firm, deep exhale.

The strength of her beauty

pushing, bending, not breaking the frail.

She carried the world inside,

protected in her womb.

She let it run free

yet always its guide.

Swift feet and faces that bloom.

They sing their praise

through hollowing and rain.

Through chirps and thunder.

Wondering creeks

each a vein.

In her embrace.

We are part of her,

neither below or above.

Stories to Tell

To not write, to not use my words, would be as if to no longer breathe.

Magick is in the Words

I love to write. In fact I’ve made it my career and it brings me so much joy to share my creative works with the world. Here I will be posting mostly poems and short stories, with maybe a few excerpts from my novels thrown in.

The paranormal, the supernatural, the romantic, the spiritual, the horrifying, you can find it all in the poems and stories I will post. While most will be work friendly, if any are NSFW I will always give a heads up. Enjoy the dark, romantic, and mysterious tales!

For more tales and tomes, you can peruse the Stories to Tell category.

Enjoy Loves!
