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


for them……..

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