Their mouths move, but nothing gets said I can see them now, the upright but dead Giggling and giddy, filled with heavenly cheer Offering to pray for everyone here Look in their eyes and shocked you will be For there is no soul in there to see~ They’re occupied, or missing, or bloodlessly gone All […]
Tis not easy being a witch So many want you to scratch their itch Woe is me, for I work nights Riding my broom at lofty heights Women all want a love true spell Men tell me I’ll go to hell Herbs and magick, one two three It’s not that easy to be me Dashing […]
For decades I slept or rushed through multitudes of splendid golden sunrises, I was unresponsive to the delicate dew kissed bird music of dawn and I overlooked a million enchanted glitter-spun moon beams. Having a Grandchild made me magickal again~
Midnight moonshine Buttery Bright Silver whiskers Light the night Beautiful cat Walks in grace Fur and Purr Near my face Sweet he is Dear and whole This mystical cat Calms my soul
The crone’s door is open Night and Day The crone’s heart is open All the way Oak tree legs and mossy hair Fat soft arms that hug with care She dances deep within the night She sings and conjures till the light Silver charms upon her weeping tree Roots and tinctures all for thee The […]
The merry ole crone is out for the day Broom propped “straw up” while she is away. Her skirts are cotton, she smells of a rose. By her violet door, herbs and flowers now grow. Sage and Rosemary sizzle there in the sun The labors of summer, yet to be done In her heart, she […]
The Naked Crone Knows too much Cares and Cannot care A cape of fog Dropped in delight She leaps naked~above and below Licking the flames Bells on her fingers and toes Cauldron Bellied Star Eyed Warm wand hands Fired up Twisting, bending Glowing, knowing, teaching learning and growing~
I will you well I will you strong I will you protection From all harm Three time three I will this now Lord and Lady To thee I bow~ So Mote it ever be Thoughts of care And Love from me~
I am calling from the hill Feel me now, and feel me real Take my hand and come my way Know my heart by night and day Save your body and save your soul Save yourself, so you’ll grow old Feel Her rain and feel Her heat In your head and in your feet Feel […]
I am thinking of Little Ralphie and sending him light and love and many loving angels to watch over him always.
The candle burns So mote it be Fire in him Flames in me Ever burning Popping bright Our sighs together slash the night He takes me in his arms to see What his love has done to me When he does I want it all His blood, his seed His lust, his need Earth and […]
I have recently fulfilled a nine knot spell. The matter or the intention of the spell is of little importance, as are the details of the spell. However, the glorious side effects of the “casting” of the spell are what I am going to focus on in this posting. Witchcraft is a joy for me. […]
My friend Lil Ralphie is back on the streets tonight. Here I sit listening to a sleeping house, I am unable to sleep. I am thinking of where Lil Ralphie might be sleeping, I am asking myself “is he safe, what might he be eating, is he hungry, how will he have coffee when he […]
As some of you know I was “gifted” an orphaned kitten on the 15th of April. He still had his cord attached and his eyes were fused. He has grown and he is thriving. Blessed Be.
I write on The Experience Project as well as here on Ralphie’s Portal. Our dear high one “Ralphie” has asked me to post this story here on the portal. I wanted to preface this story by clarifying what EP sisters are, (Experience Project sister witches and friends) Now, here you are~. It is one of the supreme […]
Birdsong and a fine black cat Here I sit where I’m at The trees are lit with glowing gold Waiting stories that must be told Coffee and cream held in my hand Before me sunshine, mountains and land Let me consider over this day What tunes to hum~ What words to say? Let me gather the glow […]
On April 30 into May 1st we Pagan types celebrate Beltane. Beltane is a fire festival honoring the return of the earth’s fertile phase. Beltane is most usually celebrated around the fiery fingers of a robust merry bon fire and dancing beneath a colorful maypole. I have read that “back in the day” the fertility […]
This little kitten was discovered in an old lawn building that belongs to one of my childhood friends. He was found in a cold dark corner alone, his nose was raw from rooting in the dirt, his eyes were still tightly fused, his umbilical cord was still attached, he was clearly a new born, he was hungry, […]
My Evening Bark pressed to my face A solitary grace An altar with deep roots Far beneath my boots My flesh is old I know But still I need to grow I’m ever filled with passions These things get me through the night I have no shame, for I know that I am right I will light […]
This “Lost Puppy” image from rulingcatsanddogs.com really spoke to me!
I find that my favorite people are those that love themselves. They’re easy to be around, and I know that if they love themselves they have forgiven themselves, therefore, they are likely to forgive me when my humanity gets in the way of my good intentions.
Here it comes, let go of the night Choose a fresh path, welcome the light Smile in the sun, give it a go Bless all the weeds For they too must grow I am a witch as common as mud I know of your secrets They run through your blood You’ll never fool me Not […]
It is midnight, I raise my east window, to find that it is raining hard out there tonight. This witch’s home is filled with soft music and candle light, the dogs snore. My body is tired but my mind isn’t ready for sleep, my spirit is at peace. An alert black cat named Salem just climbed onto […]
Someone is firing a gun Somewhere Someone is teasing the keys of a piano Somewhere Someone is writing a best seller Somewhere Someone is laughing Somewhere Someone is starving Somewhere Someone is scared Somewhere Someone is pushing a broom Somewhere Someone is playing Somewhere Nuns are sleeping Somewhere Rosaries tangled in their fingers In their […]
We have many choices in life, we don’t think about this often, but, we truly do. From the moment we roll from bed, there are choices; diminutive details of our lives are all about our own choices, but, we fail to claim this as a truth, we fail to take personal responsibility and ownership of […]
May you always have walls for the winds, a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire, laughter to cheer you, those you love near you, and all your heart might desire.
I am a proud West Virginian. I grew up here and I live here. I have lived other places further north and further south. I’ve visited New York City; I’ve also visited the west coast. I’ve been around this country. I’ve seen a little bit of this and little bit of that, but West Virginia […]
Bunnies and lambs frolic in the glen Sunlit earth, turned once again Shoots and buds show smiling faces Native greens now take their places Sparrows and Robins busy at their nests The forest is alive with feathery chests Warm the ground, bless the seed Give us Goddess all we need Dance and sweep Chant and […]
When I awaken to the crooning of The Mother I know that I am loved When I am alone but not lonely I know that I am loved When a four legged friend sleeps in the hollow of my belly I know that I am loved When his tired eyes light up after my kisses […]
Awareness comes with age; this is yet another motivation to rejoice these mid-life years. Mindfulness, consciousness, and responsiveness are discoveries that embrace me within the reassuring arms of perpetual renewal and daily amazement. Every day I find myself pondering some novel state of being that I totally missed in my youth. More than once […]
