The Candle Garden

27 Apr

A candle cleansed,
Dressed and blessed,
I walk to the altar
To plant another candle
In the candle garden.

Lighting the wick
To send positive energy
Towards its chosen task.
Done in perfect love,
And perfect trust
Is all She ask.

Flames dance
On the candle wicks,
Left and right,
Back and forth,
Up and down.

A bright blue candle for protection,
A light blue candle for peace,
A dark blue candle for justice,
A green candle for healing,
So many colored candles
Each with its own purpose.

A candle for my wife,
A candle for each of my children,
A candle for each of our parents,
A candle for our extended family,
And a candle for those who’ve passed. 

A candle for Tunisia,
A candle for Yemen,
A candle for Egypt,
A candle for Libya,
A candle for Syria,
And a candle for the protestors seeking freedom.

A candle for Israel,
A candle for Palestine,
A candle for Iraq,
A candle for Afghanistan,
And a candle for our troops.

A candle for the Americas,
A candle for Europe,
A candle for Asia,
A candle for Africa,
A candle for Australia,
And a candle for the polar regions.

A candle for earth,
A candle for air,
A candle for fire,
A candle for water,
And a candle for all pagans. 

A labor of love
Is this candle garden,
Yet with sorrow,
Not joy do I watch it grow,
Sending out positive energies
To combat the negatives of the world.

And I think to myself,
How many more candles
Must I plant
In the candle garden?

In The Grove

14 Mar

In the Grove
of ancient Oak,
there is a clearing
where the goddess, to me, spoke.

Where the tall emerald grasses sway,
as the winds whistle and play.
The wide shallow brook babbles,
as over precious stones it travels.

Rusalki with wet green hair,
In a circle dance.
I do stare
as in a trance.

Sitting on my chair of stone,
I know in my heart I am not alone.
On a stone chair across the table from me,
She calls my name and ask what I see.

Goddess, Mother,
I say to her.
This grove of oaks is within me,
My personal sanctuary.

She smiles and moves a chess piece,
My turn now, and move I must.
For in here I am at perfect peace,
And give to her,
perfect love, and perfect trust.

Bitter Apples

8 Mar

I went to the barrel
And reached down in,
To pull out an apple
To liven my grin

But the apple was bitter,
Turning my grin to a frown,
And this bitterness I shared
with everyone I met in town

Soon the bitterness flowed
Across rivers and seas,
Causing strife and discord
Spreading like a disease

Almost too late
I realized what I’d done,
By sharing my bitterness
I clouded the sun

But clouds having silver linings,
This is how we learn,
By taking responsibility
For our actions, wisdom we earn

So I reached into the barrel,
For an apple so sweet,
From this day forward with lightness
And smile people I will greet

For The Moon

20 Feb

If we asked for the moon,
would you give it?
An outrageous request,
you would say.

What about tolerance,
and acceptance?
Are these beyond your
reach to give?

Because we do not
believe as you,
do you deny us our
connection with the Divine?

We are witches, yes,
priests and priestesses too,
honoring the divine duality,
God and Goddess.

Use not your religious faith,
as a reason to treat us ill,
when you should treat us
as you wish to be treated.

But if the moon is all you can give,
we will gladly take it. For even one
act of giving is an act of tolerance,
acceptance, and love in the Divine’s eye.

Into The Silence

16 Feb
Into the silence
I do go,
When to me the world has lost sense,
And the Akashic Record I seek to know

Into the silence 
I do go,
Through meditative trance
A quieting of mind I undergo

Into the silence
I do go,
To give mental healing a chance
And connect to the universal flow

Into the silence
I do go,
When spiritually I need a boost,
The God and Goddess I seek to know

And when I'm old many years hence,
Learned the lessons I need to know,
Into the silence
I will go

Cry Freedom

5 Feb

Rage! Rage at the injustice done,
To our people at home, in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Rage at the ignorance and fear;
A chaplain recalled and denied transfer.
Rage! Rage at intolerance:
Our symbol denied issuance
on the gravestones of those
whom gave their lives for freedom.
Rage! Rage at religious bigotry:
Freedom of religion means freedom
for all religions,
in our constitution it is writ.
And when the rage is spent,
negativity is grounded,
and a calmer head you have,
cry. Cry for those whom deny you your chosen path.
Cry! Cry to the Mother for strength.
Cry for the ignorant and intolerant.
Then, march. Lift your head high!
And march! Physically or mentally to
the capital, do march. With candles lit,
let the light of knowledge shine. Drive
back the darkness of ignorance. March!
March with your brothers and sisters of all religions.
March with candles held high,
and cry, “Freedom!”
