Tides!





Every day the sea

blue grey green lavender

pulls away leaving the harbourโ€™s

dark-cobbled undercoat

slick and rutted and worm-riddled, the gulls

walk there among old whalebones, the white

spines of fish blink from the strandy stew

as the hours tick over; and then

far out the faint, sheer

line turns, rustling over the slack,

the outer bars, over the green-furred flats, over

the clam beds, slippery logs,

barnack-studded stones, dragging

the shining sheets forward, deepening,

pushing, wreathing together

wave and seaweed, their piled curvatures

spilling over themselves, lapping

blue grey green lavender, never

resting, not ever but fashioning shore,

continent, everything.

And here you may find me

on almost any morning

walking along the shore so

light-footed so casual.


~ Mary Oliver.

#PoeticThursday . . . . To A Rose







Ah! Beautiful Rose!
To me thy petals oft disclose
The flaming Beauty of the tender rays
That in the Master’s Sun I praise!
.
Beautiful Rose–sweet Rose of tender Truth
That all is Life Forevermore! Oft in my youth
Beside thy ope’ning petals I would lie
Wrapt in the Beauty of thy softness! I
Would gaze upon you as a lover would, and you
Would sweetly, earnestly my raptures view!
.
Ah! Rose! Most Beautiful Rose!
In thee so tender–God’s Repose
Must surely be–so pure, Sweet Rose, art thou!
Dear Rose, accept my humble praises! How
The love of thee remains, Sweet Rose–in absence, too–
For thou art pure, Kind Rose–all pure and true!
.
BY CHARLES HINE RICK HUBBARD.

Full Moon Blessings!





The Full Hunter Moon in Aries on October 13 can stir strong and challenging emotions. This
will be a time of rather high energies due to a celestial alignment of Moon, Sun and Pluto
forming a T-square pattern being at the same degree in their corresponding signs (Aries,
Libra and Capricorn). These energies can trigger some negative reactions, dramatic decisions
and angry resolutions. So, try to stay grounded, neutral and calm. Let your wisdom, not fear
guide you through challenges, shifts and transformations. Remember, that every storm
eventually runs out of rain, so this powerful celestial energy will recede cleansing the space
for new beginnings.

#Omens&Symbols . . . . The Triple Goddess




The Triple Goddess or Virgin, Mother, Crone represents the phases of the Moon.
The new Moon, the full Moon and the waning Moon symbolizing that everything
in the material world has a beginning, comes to fullness and eventually ends . . .
but there is always a New Moon or new beginning.

Listen! the wind is rising




“Listen! the wind is rising,
and the air is wild with leaves.
We have had our summer evenings,
now for October eves.”

~Humbert Wolfe, (1936).
