the green man reaches up
to touch your snow-feathered shoulder
and you hold him in your pale hands
and take him into the dark places
binding him in a lunar eclipse
as you honour the enchanted union
with the son of the land
queen and daughter, wife and sister
you have many names
indulge in the sunlight, accept nature’s gifts
grateful for the positive glorious energy
the earth shares with us
We’ve officially had the worst summer in years – with many places experiencing lower than usual temperatures, rain, and lots of wind. It improved a little during February and has certainly been better the last couple of weeks, so I’m looking forward to more sunshine. Today is the start of Autumn, and we often have some glorious days during this time of year.
Interesting that I chose this photo and wrote this verse back in December, without really thinking about the seasons. But this is exactly what I need now.
