And acknowledge her wisdom ~ respect her power.
I shall pause, remembering with honor, my ancestors.
Their lessons thru the ages, now mine,
As mine will pass one day into the future.
The full and perfect moon above, icon of magic and mystery
I will marvel at things known only to those of ancient ways
Turning towards her harsher, harder side
I will pause
Charged with the gift of another year
Of striving. Learning. Sowing kindness.
And once again I am reminded of precisely
How important ~ and unimportant ~ I am ~ amid it all
Single thread in the fabric that I am...
