The coming of the light

Imbolc by Marja Lee

Happy Imbolc from Myth & Moor, as the Great Wheel moves from winter to spring and the days slowly grow lighter.

"To open our eyes, to see with our inner fire and light, is what saves us," writes Linda Hogan (in The Woman Who Watches Over the World). "Even if it makes us vulnerable. Opening the eyes is the job of storytellers, witnesses, and the keepers of accounts. The stories we know and tell are reservoirs of light and fire that brighten and illuminate the darkness of human night, the unseen. They throw down a certain slant of light across the floor each morning, and they throw down also its shadow."

The beautiful Imbolc painting above is by my dear friend and village neighbour Marja Lee Kruÿt. You can see more of her work and read about her painting philosophy here.

Happy Imbolic Terri!

Love love this painting and join you in anxiously waiting for Spring and that coming light. Thank you so much for sharing th9s!

Even In Winter

Oh Sun! late in the day,
sleek dancer of light
you circle around

the birch tree lending
its bare branches
a veil of gold.

An aura
suggestive of Spring
when she turns homeward
tumbling her hair
into wind and water,

the brightened
breath and flow
of all things.
