Full Moon to Dionysus

Tonight was Oaken Circle‘s full moon ritual. Dionysus was chosen as this moon’s featured deity. Togas were the encouraged dress for the evening, and the pot luck had an Asian flair. Participants were asked to bring a poem or artwork of some sort in honor of one of the arts patron deities.
I, alas, did not make it out on this beautiful blue moon night. I stayed home with hot chocolate and blankets with a thumpy head and sore throat. However, I did craft a poem to share:

fox skin
trickster’s mantle
bringing truth in mischief
unfettered nature flows from wine
Bacchus

A small glass of elderberry wine seems in order before bed.

Another Samhain poem

a cinquin this time:

Samhain
final harvest
pumpkins and apples bright
like autumn leaves before the dark
winter

restful sleep
elusive shadow
always drifting
just beyond my eyes

dreamtime

NaPoWriMo # 21
crystals vibrating
resonating with chakras
colors bring healing

NaPoWriMo # 22
horse foals
leggy babies
scrambling upright, wobbly
seeking, searching, nursing at last
spring gift

NaPoWriMo # 5
