Lunae Memoriae

My Lady sails through silver sky,
Her pale skin, a shade of light,
She glows in brilliant radiance, my lover faire.

With gentle grace she wanders through the night,
Her gossamer gown flows ‘round about her feet,
Her footsteps leaving stardust in her path.

She sings with laughter, starlight song,
Her voice, a gentle shining mist,
Whispering the mystery.

Her soft touch, cool as evening aire,
Her kisses shimmer on my skin,
Gifts of music, soft and sweet.

Dancing through eternity,
My lover faire,
My Lady of sweet memory.

To the Queen of the Abyss…

Once upon a time, you were brilliant and beautiful.
Full of power and blessed with privilege,
You danced upon the stage of life,
full-glorious in the light, admired by all.
Desiring all that you could see,
All that you desired was yours.

Vain and entitled, life was a game and you,
The Queen, reveling in your mastery of it,
played with abandon and the carelessness
of one who has never known the truth of sorrow.

Confident within yourself, and in the rightness of your power,
you played with your puppets
and tossed them aside when the next pretty thing caught your eye.
For the desire of some sparkling token,
You used your power to have what you desired,
 and destroyed something of true worth.

Did you know it then? Or did you only discover it after?

Now you stand, in your silent isolation, as cold as the corpses you left behind,
Hooded and cloaked in darkness, seeing nothing, making no sound.
Your grief and despair wail unceasingly, surrounding you,
filling your cavernous Temple of Sorrows,
moving upon the rushing waters swirling continuously at your feet.
These are your powers, your sorrows, your purpose.
These are your children and your treasures, this sound and this temple.
Here in the Abyss you reign as Queen.

You followed me for lifetimes, unseen, unknown,
lifetimes more have I carried you.

The time has come to bid farewell,
But my heart is reluctant to lose you. 
For what if, without you and your sorrow,
my heart is empty, or I have no heart at all?
You have been my companion, a part of me, for so very long,
how do I abandon you forever?
Will I still know myself without your sorrow in my soul?

 I must let you go,
I must cut the thread that binds us.
Unless I do, we will always dance together in the darkness.
I must step forward into my purpose, my future,
Into my power, and the light.
You have taught me well through time of many lives. 
My heart and soul will remember you,
even when I am free of your sorrow and your grief.
I promise you that what is remembered lives.

And maybe someday we will dance together in the light.

Falling into the fire...

I had a dream…
You were there, offering me all that I had once desired…
Offering me the chance to fall …
back into all the old patterns and habits of my past.
Offering me the opportunity to return to the veil,
that hides me from myself and from the light.
I woke knowing that I could not have you,
or risk returning to the shadows.

I told myself   “Do not fall in love with him.
He is too strong for you.
You will lose yourself again.
Do not fall in love with him.”
But it was already far too late…

I fell, Oh how I fell…
And I am falling still…
It matters not that you are not in love with me…
or that you cannot be.
It makes no difference that I am strong enough without you,
Or with you, or that I am not with you.
or that you wear the face of God, or that He wears yours.
I no longer know which, and it no longer matters.

For I am strong enough to love a God…
and to stand in the light.
I no longer need to hide behind the veil…
I can stand and fall and fall and fall…
And still I stand…

I stand in the light no matter how I fall…
The falling is no longer to be feared…
The fire inside your mind, your heart, your soul…
Sparks the flame within my own
Your body sets my own on fire
And so I fall …

into the magick of falling
in love with you…
and I stand in the light of the fire...
even as I fall…

Bear

Sleeping deep within the Mother
You walk the dream-time
Traveling the star-road
Through the void
In the forest of the otherworlds
Wisdom-stones beneath your feet
In silence and power
Instinct mingles with intuition
Finding truth and emerging into new light

Eclipse


Your shadow passes silently over me,
hiding me from the light and warmth of the sun.
I shiver and glow with the colour of my passion for you.
Until the dark and shifting clouds hide you from me
and I fear I shall never see you again.
Terrified and cold.
Then you leave me and pass by.
And I am bright again,
if not so warm.

I lay upon my bed...

I lay upon my bed,
The light turned out an hour ago,
The embers shimmer and glow inside,
The waves rolling off my skin,
Light the shadows all around.

I think of you and in my mind,
I hold your body close.

Although my heart would be for you,
A place of love and healing,
My mind tells me that what you need,
Is not what I can offer.

I focus on your pain,
On my desire to transform
That sharp thing,
Into something else.

As intense and overwhelming,
And consuming as my need.

My body and my soul want you still,
Even in your darkest hour.

To feel your force,
Your frustration and your anger,
Your loss and grief and despair,
Pouring into me,
Purged and purified.

To be battered in your arms,
To feel your violence and your hope,
To feel your control,
And your abandonment of it.

To feel your hands around my throat,
Pressed against the wall,
With no escape,
No choice,
But to surrender to your will,
And be conquered by your power.

Wishing Well Love Spell

I cast my wish into the Well,
And as I do I cast this spell.
I call to me my match, my mate.
I call the one who is my fate.
I call to me my own true love,
By Sun and Moon and Stars above!

Invocation to my Patron

Gwynn ap Nudd
Dark Father, Lord of the Storm
Leader of the Hunt, Guide of the Dead
Guardian of the Cauldron of Annwfn
I come to you in the Dark
I cry to you in the storm
Hear me and Lead me home
Gwynn ap Nudd
Rider of the winds, Lord of the Dark
At whose feet my ancestors sit
I call to you in my despair
I am your child, I am in need
Embrace me in my weakness,
my ugliness, my fear
hear me and lead me home

For the Wild God

Cernunnos

Untamable Wild Spirit
Undeniable Force of Life
God of Carnal Pleasure and Passionate Joy,
Laughter and Love.
Come to me and Take me.
In that place of ecstasy
Where there are no boundaries to separate me
From all that you are.

Samhaine

We call the names

The bell is rung

The veils are thin

The spirits come

We speak with them

And they with us

In perfect love and perfect trust

Our honored dead

Beloved guides

Share their truth

From the other side

We share our feast

And bid them well

From this mortal land

Where we now dwell

Healing Spell

Doubt no longer rules my mind
Grief no longer chokes me
Fear no longer rules my heart
and Loss no longer wounds me
Hope and Joy and Faith and Love
These things shall now replace them
By Sun and Moon and Stars above
My Spirit now reclaims them.

Mabon

Equal Night and Equal Day
Gather apples while we may
Down into the Dark we go
Deeper Mysteries we would know
To Rise again into the Light
Equal Day and Equal Night

For the Dark Maiden




Maiden Huntress
Bloudewydd,
Flower-Bride by magick made
to be the Bride of Light
yet your sovereignty never surrendered.
You chose your lover by your will
and sent the Eagle flying.
by Magick turned
from Flower-Bride to Night-Hunter
silent-winged Owl-Goddess
flying unheard to hunt the dark
sharp-seeing and swift
talons pierce soft fur,
warm flesh, fluttering heart
surrenders to your grasp.

Lammas

The strength of summer moves forward,
Toward the harvest of first-fruits we go,
When the corn and the grain are now taken,
Their great sacrifices we know.

Though the sun keeps on marching toward darkness,
We are grateful for all we receive,
For the life and great blessings we’re given,
In the great giving Earth we believe.

Midsummer


The Sun in strength shines warm and bright,
The Earth in green bursts full with life;
The veil now thins, the night descends,
The faeries dance in starlight bands;
and now begins the growth of night.

Beltaine


Flowers ‘round the Maypole grow
Dancers weaving to and fro
Sunshine warms our Earth and hearts
Lord and Lady take their parts
Bringing all fertility
To our world, so mote it be

Ostara Prayer

Lord and Lady of Spring’s return
Come to us that we may learn
Of warming earth and growing Sun
Of greening life that newly comes
Into the world that we may see
and hope in love, So mote it be.

Ostara

Equal Day and Equal Night
Earth is Greening
Hail the Light
Life within our world is growing
Hope within our hearts is glowing
Equal Day and Equal Night
Earth is greening
Hail the Light

Oblivion

The demons lurk around me, surround me,
creeping in the darkness,
in the quiet of solitude,
inside me they hide,      
and wait to over-come me.
I run, wrestle, try to escape, to chase them away.
But still they come,
like bad dreams,
the night-mares I have
when I am awake.
Reality comes too close.
I seek oblivion, my refuge.
I pursue it everywhere.
Finally it comes to me,
slips over me like a blanket,
the demons are purged.
Gratefully I rest,
and am safe.

Waiting

At midnight I sit among my candles and incense,
music and wine, waiting.
I think of you driving in the night,
and I wait for you to come to me.
I hear you at the door, before you are there,
and then you are, and you come inside.
You don’t have to talk, just lay beside me
I hold you and you sleep in my arms.
Every night I wait, every day I wait,
for the day that you need me,
the day that you want me,
the day that you love me,
and I wait for you to come to me.
