I heard the music and saw the Maiden

by Magus Thorn Darkweaver

Age Group: Adult

I heard the music and saw the Maiden
Magus Thorn Darkweaver
A hand-fasting to remember dedicated to Ginger and David
Endless happiness to you both and to lady Arawaine Healingwind My fellow survivor of the chaos

In the deep bitter chill of early morning that joyous Sahaimn day I woke and knew this would be a stress filled day the balancing the packing the youthful bride and groom everything spoke to me with a mark of doom the preparations were chaotic the trip was bitter cold but the night before making this endeavor I did something of old I went to my alter to the high ones I did pray to give this pair of lovers a wonderful wedding day I prayed to Mother Gaia for her blessing and Ares to give me strength I prayed for Aphrodite to give the union happiness and length I prayed to lady Hecate Mistress of the night as the old year draws its close that she would allow the new one to have light and having offered up these prayers with a glass of wine I noted and I slept hoping that everything would be fine. In the morning we packed in the darkness before dawn and packed ourselves into the truck and then we were gone. The winds the were bitter cold so cold I had to use a spell I used the charm of making to keep from freezing oh well we acquired the guests and bride and groom oh what a what a fright-full fit we were lucky all of us had a place to sit. The company it was pleasant though it was also very squished not quite accommodations even a mouse would wish. When we got there I had hope the morning it was fine and as we all dawned our robes among the oak and pine I felt a wonderful sense of peace that was momentarily mine but knowing weddings as I do I knew that it was fate and thus my theory was confirmed our priestess she was late well we waited yes we had our games a few sword fights mine game set and match and again I let this hope of mine begin to thaw and hatch but then as if to spoil it I heard a thunderous crash my beautiful staff hit the ground with a sickening smash the jewel had lost its place upon the beach wood pole leaving nothing a the top but the jewels socket hole no matter said I all things happen although my magic was suddenly sapping I had used so much energy to keep my warmth and keep away the rain suddenly the breaking of my walking stick seemed a great amount of pain we headed to the ceremony among a grove of trees and there I felt a soothing light eastern breeze the ceremony was beautiful stirring heart felt words but as the bells rang for the wind suddenly I heard the strangest thing to say the music of the ancients had began to play a choir of ethereal voices with their own blessings to say then at my shoulder I felt a gentle a gentle hand and felt a her kiss upon my cheek lady Aphrodite had come by me to stand she whispered in my ear and thus I stepped forward and gave the blessing to the couple though it was through my words the feast after was a marvel and joy was every were though no-one knew my secret joy until they read this page a wedding is a blessing no matter how chaotic it may seem that night the goddess and that music waited for me in my dreams and through the years I will remember and deeper homage I will pay for the goddess Aphrodite visited me that day.

Author's Notes: This is dedicated to a most stressful sahiamn and I am glad to have been able to spend it with those i love to the bride and groom endless happiness and to my own dear freind arawaine thank you for surviving the handfasting with me I cherish this day not only as the wedding of two of my dear freinds but as the day a goddes visited me enjoy
