    Ode to a September Moon

    Ode to A September Moon By Brandi-Ann McAuliffe The Sky is dark, The Moon is full Goddess calls me To Her will. The Wheel turns as we Descend I watch the Moon of Purification Ascend. Chill in the air frosting Her Silver glow Still Her Magic She does bestow. Awen streams from Mother above Guiding our hands with Her Divine love. A stillness within, A calm in my heart Once again The Moon shares with me Her art. Brandi-Ann McAuliffe (Ursa Arcanna)  joined the Sisterhood of Avalon at Calan Gaeaf of 2016.  She lives in Montreal Quebec with her 10-year-old son and works in health care at the Children’s Hospital.

    Descent – a poem

    DESCENT By Robin Corak The darkness is calling me again Mysteries creating a hazy veil I dive into an ebony sea And am plunged into midnight waves I gasp for breath And desperately struggle to ascend back to the safety of the surface Slowly, subtly, my fears turn to fins And I am swimming through the darkness like an undine Singing to my demons Calling them to attention and then soothing them to sleep Sifting through the shipwrecks of my past Excavating the wounds of my soul Salty tears merge with the saline sea The water gets darker and darker and yet My iridescent scales flash like lightning, offering brief…

    One Woman’s Thoughts – Part 6

    One Woman’s Thoughts By Susan Morgaine  #6 Freedom is an illusion We are tied by tradition, chained by charade, stymied by society We are held back, pushed down, shut up, demeaned, defiled and defrauded Do this; don’t do that Say this, don’t say that Behave like this, not like that We might give you this, but we’ll take that back Don’t speak your mind, speak mine Thoughts of your own? Keep them to yourself Do what we say, dress as we say, behave as we say Dying inside? We don’t care We always get our way Freedom is an illusion.

    Flying with Blodeuwedd

    Flying with Blodeuwedd By Christina McClendon Breath deepens In and out. Lungs expand In and out. Eyelids close and the waves appear. As the wave crests, I see Her face. And then She is gone. Another wave comes, again, Her face. The curve of Her smile, the wisps of hair under Her hood, The wide large eyes of Blodeuwedd. Stillness. Complete Bliss. Perfect Unconditional Love.
