The simple celebration of the Maypole dance is one that I have done many times.  My tradition takes a 25 ft. piece of colourful ribbon and we write what  we desire to plant/bring/create/fertilize into our lives to come to fruition.  I also write what I am willing to let go of to give space for new seeds to be planted within me.  We tack it to the pole and weave between each other singing sacred chants to the Earth and to Spirit of Spring unfolding.  This year I will not be doing the literal Maypole dance, and I will be writing what I desire to seed in my inner garden.  How I might fertilize these seeds of kindness, compassion, goodness, and well-being.  

How about you?  What do you wish to plant and seed in your life at this time?  What do you want to come to fruition?

 

BELTANE HAIKU

 

Chant the seeding wish

Rainbow ribbons weave the pole

Spring green opens wide

 

Thin between the worlds

Dance sacred earth and heaven

Cast the blessing song

 

Weave the wish to truth

Let go of lost beginnings

Feel the dew refresh

 

Renew in Springs call

In meadow green dance the dance

Let love find you now
