Blogging for Brigid

So, I was over at the blog, The Gods Are Bored and came across Brigid Poetry Blogging. "What is this?", I wondered. So I followed the trail back to Anne Hill's Blog o' Gnosis which kicks off the 5th Annual Brigid Poetry Festival. I couldn't pass this up and what better way to welcome Imbolc!

So, in honor of Imbolc and the Goddess Brigid(most associated with the sabbat) I will post a poem I wrote for Imbolc in 2003.

Beautiful white bride
of the countryside
Your sweet perfume
Doth fill a room
Flowers do bloom
In honor of you and your groom
And we dance again
Dance again

You turn to me
Say, "You must follow to see."
I take your hand
Together we greet the land
"This is where the magic grows,
here is the seed you must sow."
And we dance again
Dance again

Lord and Lady gave blessing
And I did of their asking
In the newborn light
We said farewell to night
So the wheel turned again
And the Lady did call me friend
And we dance again
Dance again

A new year, a new song

Many years ago I started a tradition with my best friend. We would get together on New Years or closest we could and do a small ritual. The main ingredient for this little ritual was a song. We would both pick out a song for the new year. Something that was inspirational to us and projected what we wanted for that new year. This year I am without that friend. However, I have acquired a new partner in crime and we plan to get together soon to do the same. The problem is I can't find a song! This could perhaps be because I am not sure what I want for this New Year or the fact that I just can't find a song to inspire me. So, despite the New Year here already I will still search on for that song.

Anything special you like to do as a New Year's tradition/ritual?
