Candlemas/Imbolc


Imbolc.  Candlemas.  Today marks the time between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox.  It is time when the Spring begins to stir in the frozen.  She hears the season’s cycle whisper in the steady quiet.

Earth holds the seeds

Frozen, suspended

quiet in the Winter rest

Readying

 

Even in the dark freeze

Green stirs before awakening

hidden in bark and root

Whispering

 

The Sun gives his tease

Winter holds his freeze

Closer comes the Spring

Celebrating

 

Between the worlds green sleeps

Still in the stillness waits

A season cycles to feel her turn

Rising
