#50. Poem: A Season of Time’s Re-birth!
Happy New Month; new beginnings, new endings, new moments…
Poem: A season of time’s rebirth!
Hush! No noise, no fights, no tears
Hush! Hush! be still, for heaven’s sake
This is not the season for regrets or pains
Today is the sacred, soulful, silent eve
When old hurts, shame, guilt and fears
Are buried away by the promise of the verse
Sung from the hidden hearts of the universe.
Our hearts and spirits lift up in awe at the music
Melting away all the disappointments of yesterday
This is the sacred night of the cross-over
When an old dusk and a new dawn kiss
And make up as a sign of new beginnings
When the day stays up, alert, wide-awake
She is pregnant with the awaited unborn
A full cycle is gone by and so we wait
For the one who comes in the middle
With hopes and dreams offered up in faith.
This is the season of time’s magical rebirth
A new moon arises and the old is put to rest
So call everyone in the tribe, let’s all rejoice
Six stars are revealed from the hidden dozen
Come, come, bearing offerings and gifts
Baskets and buckets of everything desired
Let us gather and celebrate the journey so far
Dancing and singing in praise and worship
As we welcome and usher in a blessed new month!
