The Power Enfolds
by Doyenne Solace Arcanna ShadoeWalker
Age Group: Adult
The Power Enfolds
Its dark now and the silver light of Luna coats everything with a gilt edge
the air is cool , not yet summer warm and it softly bites my skin,
Still shy after all this time aware of the marks of time
not vanity really ... but the awareness of being a Crone now
Slowly/quickly the shush as silken robes fall to the ground with shy smiles
and giggles of proud young Sisters skyclad for the first time
Softly The Lady's Maiden calls us to the Circle
Brushed/Caste and Invited all the same as decades gone past
Hands clasped laughter replaced with solemn purpose
The drum beats to keep time the heartbeat, , , the Mothers heart
Candles shimmer drums throbs a warm breath .... She is here now ...with us
The Lady's Maiden smiles and our steps now fly
Smiles and hands now entwined ... The Power Enfolds
Voices now calling chants old and ancient beyond time
Luna's silver light enfolds, encloses and energizes
Now we dance on the drumbeats
Blue smoke sends our chants spinning high
Firelight flickers blue and orange higher now snapping crackling
Sheer white light the sheen covers the dancers
as though we were all gilded in The Lady's light
Tresses swinging braided , twisted , oiled and unbound crowns
Halos of colour and curls ... clouds of shimmering tresses
Our only cloaks floating now swinging in time
And the drum slows
and the fire dies
and at once all the dancers feel the cool night air
Soft voiced the Lady's Maiden gives our thanks and dismisses the corners
and the Circle is severed and time again begins
Quietly robes are once more worn and voices rise "Do you need a ride?"
And everyday life has resumes though the air is redolent with power
Sisters glowing with power called down, soft and gentle smiles
show that The Lady's soft touch...has blessed us all
The Maiden greets and blesses each Sister
a few quiet words and the soft touching of hands
fingers softly entwin and eyes dark with Power and Secrets
This has been a Ritual a Calling a Rejoicing Reaffirmation
And we are once more connected Sisters, Elders, Teacher, Mentors
Woman all .. Sisters all.. in The Lady's Light we are once more one
