Lacy White

  Presentation1

Sunlight flows
Through lacy white
Slim and strong
Delicate grace in sight.

Gentle green peeks
In between
Dark stained wood
On branches birds
Fluff feather and preen.

Nature’s Life lay hidden
Within bough and bark
Summer’s hand is calling
And His brilliance of
Light has left graceful mark.

The photo was taken at Ridley Creek State Park. I stopped to take some photos  after visiting my Mom.

Maiden’s Cauldron

IMG_2054

Come dance round my cauldron
Come smell herbs burning bright
Come take from my energy of
Youth, fertility and might.

I wait for my consort
The wild youth of
Nature’s fecundity
In passion’s heat the
Cauldron’s flame will
Rise and burn strong.

The union of our passion
This act of creation
Its desire and will
These are the fruits of
The fires that burn
All season long.

Inspired by our Beltane Ritual at Ridley Creek State Park today.

May’s Promise

persephone_2

Morning sun rises
Spreading fingers of
Light calling me to rise
It’s time!

The wind blows gently
And I hear the song of
Wind chimes telling me
It’s time!

The birds chirp eagerly
As wings flutter in
Trees that are greening
Every day because
It’s time!

The delicate fragrance
Of newly budding flower
Wafts through the air
Etching ribbon’s writing
Its time!

I walk on warming soil
No longer frozen from
Cold winter’s touch
It’s time!

Sunlight lingers as
Hours stretch into
Eventide and flaming
Orb of Father Sun flows
Gently into a warm
Night that whispers
It’s time!

May has come and the
Beauty of floral
Colored gown and
Hair of golden sunlight
Holds in her verdant womb
Of fertile growth season’s
Greening of life and land.

This is her cycle’s yearly
Promise that now
It’s Time!

Happy Earth Day!  I came across these wonderful galleries featuring the photography of Paul Devereux. Enjoy!

Welcome to The Enchanted Gate

???????????????????????????????Nature Flows On Paths Unseen
Leaf And Turning Of The Green
Animal Breath And Insects Fly
Hawk Claims Mastery Over Sky.

Here I wait and here I hold
Close to my breast Nature’s
Stories as they unfold.

With open mind
And open heart
I step through the Enchanted Gate
And the quickening of its mysteries
Within my being it does start.

Welcome to the Enchanted Gate Blog.  I will be posting poems, photos and tributes to nature in all of Her glory as she dons the new mantle of each season.
