Halloween Fire Circle

What a wonderful experience celebrating Halloween/Samhain night with local women. Spiritual, connecting, female and moon energy rolled in with learning a Druid Dance (seen in Outlander) and ancient songs to the beat of circling drums. Below the poem is a time exposure photo of our dance. Enjoy the poem!

Halloween Fire Circle

Druid dancers
saged clean
with candles a loft
bless the earth and sky
in Celtic rhythm
under the blue, hunter’s moon.

We are the lorekeepers,
fire drummers,
women of the moon.
Gather on Samhain night
encircle the wind-whipped fire
singing
“Bones”
“Come sing with me.
“Bones”
“Dance by the fire tonight.”

Lavender tea on our lips
sharing gratefulness
and stories of the hero’s journey
lying in the ivy scented grass.

All is one
conferring with ancestors, ancients and goddess.
In truth,
we are the goddess
we are the trees,
wind and moon.
Ashes to ashes,
dust to dust.
