30th December 2020
Tonight’s the last full moon of 2020. The Wolf Moon. The Elder Moon. The Moon of long midwinter nights.
Re-posting a poem from last year. This one made it into my Book of Shadows! :-)
Long night moon, last light
Lend your shine
to the crown on the maiden
Guide her steps
as she seeks the shadow hidden self
Wolf moon, silver light
upon dark lands
Lend your clear sight
to the eyes of the mother
Guide her hands
as she steers her den and pups through winter
Elder moon, eternal light© REDCAT
keeper of mysteries
Lend your divine wisdom
to the heart of the crone
Guide her words
as she teaches the young and prepare to move on
Written for this years last full moon on December 12th.
