The Beltane is recognized as April 30, May 1 and/or May 5 based on Pagan, Celtic, or Astrological influences...it is when Sun reaches the halfway point between the Spring Equinox and the Summer Solstice.


Beltane
the half way
of equinox spring and summer solstice
its a bright glowing fire
magical in its ancient rites
beauty, pleasure, abundance
graced to those who seek
its sacred, intimate energy
 
May Day queens and Jacks in Green
radiate their goodwill faces
the solar lunar cycles smooth
the lavender blooms and
poetry wafts the fairies and
spirits of wood
winding ribbons of braided souls
water loves fire and earth mates air
chanting “blessed be” to vitality
 
healing rhythms of winters drain
celebrating spring and all her rain
this lion purrs and combs her mane
 while you light a candle for this Beltane

This sure has me purring, Debby... I had no idea about this Beltane stuff and I have just celebrated my 50th on the 4th, on the day that Saturn appeared so close and bright in the sky and the picture of me pointing at it shows my fingers almost on fire, captured in some eery light! :)) A wonderful mix of pastoral, spiritual and cultural references here, and, for Earth Girls like me, time to kick off the shoes and go hug a tree! Thank you for the fruitiness of this. Kate xx

Swimming in a Pagane Sea where gods are humans and humans are gods, where the sun will reach the upper point searching for the moon hiding in the shadows.
The golden calf is happy.
