I ... entered the poem of life, whose purpose is ... simply to witness the beauties of the world, to discover the many forms that love can take. (Barabara Blackman in 'Glass After Glass')

At Samhain

(Admonition to myself)

As the veil thins
between the worlds
notice you’ve spent the month
honouring the dead,
recent or old.

Take a moment now to reflect
on what was said today
by a healer: Spirit
isn’t finished with you yet
on this plane.

You’ve been wanting
to take things more quietly,
you’ve been feeling
tired and old. But it’s only
those 2012 changes coming.

Instead of this draining,
summon
that zingy young you
that you’ve been and are.
You’ve got more to teach.

And as the veil thins,
say hail and farewell
to your dear dead, then
with your hands on your heart
regenerate.
