New Year, Full Moon
Moon has many myths and mysteries. She has long been a symbol of the female power. Those who connect to the pull of the Moon are said to be "lunatic." The word took on the meaning we have today when medical science used it to describe the behavior of psychotic patients whose symptoms increased with the phases of the Moon.
In many Indigenous cultures, Moon was the symbol of the Wise Women and women in general. A woman's cycle is known as her Moons.
The ending of the past year and the beginning of the new year were blessed with a Blue Moon in December and the Full Moon on New Year's Day. The pictures below were taken on New Year's Day...Moon was playing hide and seek with the clouds.
First Full Moon of 2010
Wolves raise their heads in primordial chant.
Two Souls at the edge of a rocky shore
Await communion with the Infinite.
Raven, atop the ancient hemlock,
Heralds the magic moment.
At Horizon's edge, the Golden Orb
Slips silently into Midnight’s arms.
Eagle soars high above
And the Souls dance into Eternity.

BLUE MOONS AND PURPLE ROSES
Somewhere just after we give up
anticipation of things hoped for
and begin to allow acceptance
to fill the space left
by dreams unlived
bring new realities
like a bed of Purple Roses
bathed in the Light of a
Blue Moon at midday.
These moments seem too fantastic…
consciousness often explains
away the joy and wonder, so
we step aside and let the
moment pass wondering
why our hearts are breaking.
Hold hands with Serendipity
learn to hear her whispered plans…

Stepping into the Confessional of Night
The Heart opens.
Dreams too real to believe in
Come pouring out.
The silent Confessor
Neither absolves nor condemns…
But sits in the Cathedral of Midnight
A golden carpet
Into the sea blue infinity.
Bound on and endless journey.
