Harvest Twilight

Smoke, I bid thee

to the winds

to the heavens

wafting gracefully

as these offerings to spirits and ancestors, all

Liquid splashing down to the earth

libations for the presence of aerial and earthly gods

as witness

to this late harvest rite.

As the dawning of the blood and amber draw near

moving away from the sun

the earth, in her darkening embrace

Shall we light our fires

to remind us of the eternal flame

that burns long and bright.

Autumn’s days are an awakening

for hers is the hour of twilight

the shadowed borealis

that lies between space and form

Shine for us this night

as we draw forth – with soul food

to honor the twilight of the universe

the time, in-between the shadows

the shallowing of the veil draws near.
