In ancient belief control of the seasons was a battle that took place at the solstices between the Oak King, ruler of the growing half of the year up to Midsummer and the Holly King, ruler of the dying half up to Midwinter or Yule [around 21st December]. They fought for the hand of the Earth Goddess who became the bride of the victor until the next battle.


Eternal Cycle

He stands
All powerful,
Holly.
Strong,
Unyielding
Rigid,
Brittle,
Broken.

He stands
All powerful,
Oak.
Strong,
Unyielding,
Rigid,
Brittle,
Broken.

She watches,
And waits.

 

 

Peace and Light,

Sue Phillips and family.

"The Eternal Cycle" is poetry's must complied.

Never rest Your pen; don't let Your quills dry.

HAPPY HEALTHY HOLIDAYS TOO.
>>>>>>>>>>>>> < < < < < < < < < < < < < < < <

Perseverance and love form the greatest ammo of humankind, and the catalyzer of the chemical elements that generate the energy used by the doers when they drive the vehicle of success on the road to winners' city.

Drink the dews of happiness in the conclusion of your work.

May You enjoy a Memorable SEASON.
