Today is Samhain, a feast day for Celtics to say goodbye to one half of the year (light/harvest) and welcome in the another half of the year (dark/winter). This day also coincides with All Saint’s Day, a day set aside in the Christian calendar to celebrate those in our lineage who have passed on. Christine Valters-Painter has a wonderful article about Samhain here. Below is my offering to you… a poem to consider the liminal spaces of our lives.


In the
thin places,
sacred
and profane
near.
Their
energy
vibrates,
whirls
around
death
and life.
Ancient
and newly
birthed
blow whispers
at one another,
wind tickles
their ears.
When
night falls,
dreams lure,
whisk away
to another
space:
the narrow gap
of rebirth.
