Time, Energy & Writing

Dear All,

Season’s Greetings & Blessings Be!

Time energy diagram

I apologise for my long absence, Winter’s bite has bitten me deep, taking all of my energy and leaving me just wanting to huddle under the duvet & hibernate! Alas this is not a possibility with a young family and a business to run and, of course, Christmas nearly upon us. All of this, plus other goings-on, has shunted my creative Mind to the side, which is currently ‘shelved’, like that jar of yummy stuff that peeks out from the back of the cupboard, half-hidden, half-forgotten. Mentally, I want to write, I want my Creativity flowing again, and as I go about my day I come up with various ideas and lines and themes… but I cannot get the oomph together to actually sit down and craft something formed out of this. When I have the time, I don’t have the energy… and when I have the energy – yep, I don’t have the time! It’s incredibly frustrating, but I have learnt to ‘go with the energy flow’.

I hope that after the Solstice, once we reach and pass the shortest day of the year, and with Christmas behind rather than ahead of us, my time & energy will regain somewhat & I will have the right balance to pick up the metaphorical half-forgotten jar of yummy stuff from my mind, open the lid, scoop it out, and dollop a nice big portion on to the serving plate!

I hope you are all well and looking forward to your own Christmas celebrations, I am still trying to read Blogs, am catching up slowly, thank you for your understanding & forbearance!

Festive & Solstice Blessings,

Heidi

Winter’s Price

Winter Crone

Bitter tears unspilled scorch the throat
Frozen anger burning, making me choke
Feeling bitter, cold, uncaring, tough,
I want to run, hide, give up – had enough.
Oh Child, child, can you not see –
Winter’s Beginning has a grasp upon thee
What you have been given in Summer and Spring
Has it’s Price that I am now exacting
The Crone whispers with Her knowing smile
Every year I forget Her Price for a while
She is the balance of Light and Energy,
Yet always Her Winter resides deep within me.
You are my Daughter; I am in your bones,
Your Heart and Mind thrum with the tones
Of Spring’s gentle opening, Summer’s passion;
Autumn’s subtle slowing – and Winter’s retraction.
Cold; darness; ice-
Winter’s call to pay the Gifts of Summer’s price
Like the roots in the earth digging deep
And creatures obeying the call for hibernation sleep-
You too feel the need to withdraw and retract:
To retreat from the world and from it exact
The price it pays for your love that you gave
No more will you want any souls to save
Now is the time for me to pay Winter’s Price:
Too much energy expended means I’m burning ice
No more energy to give – no more to restore
Like sap freezing in every tree’s core.
I am Winter; I am The Crone,
I am the dark night, cold, alone
Ask nothing of me for I am not for giving
I am the lesson learned of the pain of Living.
Know well the Price she asks is worth the paying;
She is not cruel but wise and knowing –
For we must take back energy to our own selves
Rest, think, contemplate for our Future’s wealth.
Yet ’tis hard for me as an emotional being,
I feel the Love I kindled leaving
As Winter’s depth bites at my mind
Just as the moon affects the sea’s tides.

 

The Fate of Old Man Winter

The_Holly_King_by_ArwensGraceOld Man Winter’s weary head droops,
His rheumy eyes closing, his Time almost done-
His gnarled hands seeking support as he stoops
Cold breath sighing as he watches Young Buck run,
Coming to challenge the Old Man’s rule,
Virile and sure of himself, bringing warm breeze
Encouraged by the Spring Maiden’s enchanting call
Trying to dispel Old Winter’s lingering freeze.
It is time now the Old One knows, as his power fades
To let go, recede, and allow the Spring God to come
For wise is Winter, He who walks like unguligrades,
Gracious is he, to release his cold grip with the setting sun.
Nights grow warmer as the Young God’s powers rise
And his passing brings the birds and mating beasts
He stalks through glades hunting his Maiden prize
And flowers bloom ‘neath His feet like Springland feasts.
Old Man Winter nods his head, smiling for he knows
That this is the natural order, the wax and wane
Of each Season’s time – in balance only Nature’s bounty grows
And He departs silently, waiting in death, ‘til His next reign
