All Souls Day


All souls day
The balance of the year spent
The day half dark
Half light

The Wiccan says
Greeting of the pagan
New Year

Glorious day
Sitting upon my stoop
The day not hot
Not cold yet

Oh, if I could
Just cast a spell
To hold this delicate balance
Another week.

(c) J. Binford-Bell

    Sounds so sad, in a way, knowing these beautiful fall days will so soon give way to dreary, overcast, snow-laden ones! And that the year is indeed almost gone...where has our time flown?


I appreciate all kind comments on my art and poetry.
