The Wheel of the Year
I have been shown how to walk the Earth
and travel through the distance of time.
Listening to the voices of the trees each year
I learn from the whispers of my ancestors.
The wheel turns and time moves forward
bringing with it another new beginning.
At the New Year I ask for help
with uncrossing the binds of my soul
so come Imbolc I will be prepared
to receive the blessings of renewal.
Ostara springs forth fresh opportunities
and I sow the seeds of prosperity.
At Beltane I learn to love myself more
and awaken my inner passions.
Midsummer connects me with the wild woods
Where I grow the energy of my spirituality.
Come Lughnasadh a heavier lesson is bestowed
that of receiving great wisdom.
With the passing of time into Autumn
comes death and the necessity for transformation.
Samhain brings release and increased humility
which in turn expresses honor and well being.
When the year comes to a close at Yule
I know that I have reached the end of a cycle.
My goals now complete
the extinguished light is yet reborn
and the wheel begins again.
