Halloween Blue Moon

Halloween, Samhain, All Hallows Eve when time changes from our self-focused linear concept and stretches us across generations, across space and time in the repeating cycle of nature.

To celebrate, Mom and Dad and I visited family graves yesterday. We visited four generations as well as our own waiting plots. We touched their stones and their hearts touched ours. To make the day, and the moon by which we drove home, even more special, the last Halloween Blue Moon was on the day Dad was born in 1944. It’s a birthday moon. A moon that links generations, that remembrance in our bones. Happy Birthday Dad!

Halloween Blue Moon

Full Halloween moon
blue moon of my father’s birth
76 years ago
that precious light
on the night of the hunter
hunters moon
Orion with drawn bow
venerating this minimoon
swung far from earth
pulling us heavenward
calling all Saints
calling all Souls
calling ancestors
to commune
in the light of love
of trees and sky and genetics
Rutting bucks
led by moonlight and ancient instincts
trip through the cemetery
where waiting
near the windchimes and gnomes
our chariots
where our bones will rest
and our souls
will rejoin the moon.
