    Default Happy Samhein

    Samhain - Care2 eCards, Free Online Animated Greeting Cards

    Happy Samhein to all Celts, mystics, and those who are those things but just don't realize it yet.
    Here is a Samhein poem I wrote especially to share with my friends at E-I. I hope you enjoy. x Dolly

    A Scorpion's Dance
    By Dolly Darling C. 2008

    A cold blue sky shines down on a man with coal black hair
    Holding his carved pumpkin, he smiles and looks to the lake.
    Trees gently blow and whistle through red and yellow leaves,
    And blow him the memory of a song he heard three Octobers ago -
    A song of waterfall, harp, and beautiful women;
    A song for October darkness and embracing morning light.

    And his memory formed into a shape!
    And this memory took his hand into hers.
    Kissing his knuckles, the women of waterfall and harp song sang,
    “Do you want to make love to me tonight or do you wish me away?”
    “I want you to make love to me; to bring me to the waterfall;”
    “I want to see the intensity in your eyes when you look at me.”

    “I remember a Halloween night, when you danced with fireworks.
    You looked so happy and ecstatic and I felt so much love for you.
    I watched you dance, a scorpion under the full moon’s influence,
    As you leapt over two firework fountains, mocking and teasing fire.
    Two hurdles of sparkling pink, blue, red, green, and gold light...
    You leapt and screamed and danced with Samhein delight!”

    “And your eyes threw that light into the enchanted forest,
    Enlightening the forest’s shadows and secrets of the night.
    Your body, so shiny and illuminated – I had to touch you!
    But your tail stung me with brilliant, colorful, ecstatic poison!
    I fell to the ground with your deadly bolt of lightning –
    Stung by your Scorpion tail, felled by your electric kiss.”

    “You cast your spell on me three October moons ago,
    We buried my heart under those red and yellow forest leaves…
    But I am near you now, “Scorpio”, and I would make love to you,
    With an intensity of one who has been hungry for far too long!
    Now, feed me my king! Blow your breath of life in my mouth –
    I would kiss you all night and wake the morning in your embrace.”

    And so he set his pumpkin aside and touched the women’s ghost.
    She felt of the wet silk on morning blades of grass,
    She felt as the moss that grows up the Oak Tree’s limb,
    She felt of the cold heat of a true love’s kiss,
    He kissed her blushing cheek and whispered her fate -
    “If you can’t have the one you love, then love the one you’re with.”

    Default Yes that is Killarney Lake

    And I would wish on a star to be there this day. I did spend a halloween night in Killarney 3 years ago, and I had a Spanish boyfriend who was young at heart, and when I brought him up to the watefall and lit the sparklers, he began to dance and twirl around and leap over them. It was so beautiful to watch. I fell in love with him at that moment. Sadly, being loved was not what he had wanted in his life, and he broke up with me, as he had only been interested in being fuck buddies. I still think of him and every October I remember his dance with fire. I cherish all the beautiful memories that I have had with my lovers. I am so grateful to have had such lovely romantic experiences in my life. I'm glad you liked the poem

    Default The reason I learned to play the harp

    Was because I was a big fan of Loreena McKinnett and to be honest, her style of singing was like mine, and I knew, yes I just knew that it was my destiny to play the harp. I'm very familiar with all her albums and songs. I even know some cool little stories about her that I learned from her friends. She once went camping in Ireland and used her harp case as a sleeping bag!

    Id love to go see a Celtic festivity or Druid meeting. I once found a meeting area for Scottish Picts in an old Oak grove in the highlands, and there were blue swirls on the trees, the Picts symbol. I camped there and woke early, hearing the bird called a coo-coo bird, and it's song really was with the most haunting voice I ever heard. This was a beautiful memory of mine. It feels so meaningless sometimes to be in New York, living on the luxurious Madison Ave, buying Armani, Etro, Chanel, Gucci... sometimes i would give it all away, just to have a spiritual connection again with nature, living in the country and meeting others who feel the same.

    There is a season for everything. I was there, now I am here, maybe again I will be there.
