Have you ever noticed a tree standing naked against the sky,
How beautiful it is?
All its branches are outlined, and in its nakedness
There is a poem, there is a song.
Every leaf is gone and it is waiting for the spring.
When the spring comes, it again fills the tree with
The music of many leaves,
Which in due season fall and are blown away.
And this is the way of life.

Samhain Blessings to you and all those you love.
As we enter the dark half of the year, Mother Nature reminds us that death is a sacred part of her endless cycles of life, death and rebirth. We let go and honor what is dead and dying, knowing Spring will return.
May today bring you the blessings of the ancestors. Take time to honor them in some way.
