Solstice Ritual

Stain your wish in crimson ink Light a candle bathed in red Watch it burn, don’t blink When the sun fades and stars wink The moon shines overhead Stain your wish in crimson ink The night is long and shadows slink Let the flame banish doubt and dread Watch it burn, don’t blink Pour yourself a fiery drink Pen the desire in your head Stain your wish in crimson ink Light your paper and watch it shrink Declare what you have left unsaid Watch it burn, don’t blink Wait for dawn to turn the sky pink The sun emerging from a cloudy bed Stain your wish in crimson ink Watch it burn, don’t blink

The Bite

The moon bathes you in a glow Eyes flutter and breathing slows Flowers shudder in a vase Thin shadows caress your face A silhouette looms in the door You wonder what it’s looking for Fog presses against the window panes You blood thunders in your veins The shadow looms with outstretched hands Time slips away like sand

The Full Moon Will Rise

The sun slinks low to hide I breathe in the cold dry air The full moon will rise My search will take me far and wide Carrying a silver prayer The sun slinks low to hide The dimming sky offers a disguise Among the trees tall and bare The full moon will rise Stars will be my only guide Leading me to his lonely lair The sun slinks low to hide I’ll wait for the whites in his eyes My silver flash tearing through course hair The full moon will rise The woods will echo with cries From the beast I must ensnare The sun has slunk low to hide The full moon will rise
