On Beltane

On Beltane


Sky Father is weeping


soft cold tears


that nourish the Earth Mother


during her labor pains


Birthing new greens


birthing new growth


birthing new life


to walk and dance upon her.


Like the Moose


dancing on gangly legs


across a landscape of tussocks


soggy with the juices


from the belly of the Mother


They fill their bellies


 with the leaves of water lilies


She birthed

especially

for them……..

We saw them while having breakfast, slowly wading through the wetlands across from the house.
