Mabon- Second Harvest

Golden spell dreamer
weave your spirit
amidst the turning of the leaves.

The in- between light
and long shadows of your song
still warm the forest floor.

A time for remembering
for being still, at rest now
to reflect and renew.

Your heart will harvest
all that has come
and will now drop away.

Your hands share the bounty
of all that has been sown
now freely given away
to all who desire.

Prepare to sleep
but first celebrate the fires
of Autumn's soul
Mabon second harvest!

This coming Saturday is the Autumnal Equinox- a turning of the great wheel once again.  My son is getting married on the Eve of Mabon and on Saturday we will celebrate with family and friends and will usher in the new season with gusto and a giving away that symbolizes the season!

This entry is for the Three Muses challenge "Autumn".  Imagery from Dover books, K&Company art papers  Lorie Davison, Christine Rennee bird woodcuts all blended and  painted in Photoshop.

This is my entry for The Three Muses challenge where the theme is one of my favorite colors "Turquoise". I use turquoise so often in my art, my home, my wardrobe, jewelry, you name it.  I am very drawn to it's visual energy and sense of both warmness and coolness at the same time.  A perfect complement color is copper which  with age and exposure to the elements turns a beautiful '"patina green" or a natural turquoise which I have tried to capture in this digital piece.Imagery here from Dover, Finecrafted designs with lots of photoshop painting and filters.
