Today darkness surrounds me. The new moon has risen and the sun, eclipsed, offers no light.
Darkness surrounds my thoughts too:
Today I truly walk with the Dark Mother. Through the shadows we journey during this dark night, knowing that dawn will come, having faith that we have not been forsaken by the light.
Today I am Persephone as I travel to the Underworld. When I return I shall hold the seeds for a brighter tomorrow.
Today I am alone.
And alone I breakdown, break apart, break away.
Spinning, I fragment in the darkness as facets of my being fall away. Some facets are ripped clean, torn from my existence like and ill fitting skin. The faster I spin, the more I lose until I am afraid that when I stop there will be nothing left.
And still I cannot cease.
My falling shards shine like fractured glass, a splintered mirror, a shattered truth, a broken dream.
Today I embrace the dark veil. I am the Morrigan. I am the battle Raven. I am Lillith.
Today I am a thing of terrible radiance.
Because the truth is
There is perfection in the breakdown.
The beauty of the rain is how it falls.
Today I welcome the shadows so that Tomorrow may see the light.
Tomorrow my seeds shall grow.
