~ Northern Autumn~
The wheel has completed another of it's infinite turns.
Waning light and impending darkness in brief equipoise
as the ripe goddess mother passes to crone
and the forest god prepares for death.
Honor the toil of countless ancestors
Honor the fecundity of the earth
Honor the motion of the wheel,
keeping true the balance of growth and decay.
Accept now the soil is dying
warmth is ebbing
cold lies ahead.
Celebrate that the wheel will continue to turn.
