NaPoWriMo #8

at Winter Solstice
the darkness begins to yield,
with dawn on Imbolc
sap, life blood, climbs from the snow,
the Spring Equinox
brings the warm winds to the land,
glorious Beltaine
rainbow of fertility,
Summer Solstice sun
midday heat brings fruition,
Lammas, bread rises
the feast of the corn maiden,
the Fall Equinox
second harvest, thanksgiving,
Samhain, thinnest veil
farewell to the fading year,
as the wheel spins round again.

Another Samhain poem

a cinquin this time:

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

Samhain Blessings

a single candle
flickers bright in remembrance
this Halloween night
as the wind wails its lament,
keening with me, sharing grief
