Around the Corner: Countdown to Mabon!

Getting so excited! My favorite season of fall is just around the corner. My hubby and I wed in a legal Handfasting on Mabon of 2001. Believe it or not, it really wasn't planned that way. We both wished to get married in September and the only Saturday my dear friend and Wiccan High Priestess could officiate for us happened to be on Mabon of that year. I am convinced that it was definately meant to be!

I'd like to share with you all a poem I had written this past Spring for a blogger friend of mine who lives in the Southern Hemisphere and therefore celebrates Mabon while we Wiccans and Pagans alike living in the Northern parts are celebrating Imbolg and Ostara. I hope you enjoy it!

Painted Leaves
Colored bed beneath my feet,
The crisp, fresh air grows cool;
Painted leaves adorn the Earth,
All under Modron's rule

Aging Goddess; powerful, wise
Autumn's picture, Nature's guise
Celebration of beauty,
 the wheel turns on;
With painted leaves ~
'tis Blessed Mabon!

~ Lady Caer Morganna


  1. It is so special, that you and your hubby were wed on Mabon of 2001! I agree it was meant to be! Such a beautiful poem my friend!! I love it! Hugs ;o)

  2. I believe that love and Nature can't be denied, so yes, it was meant to be. So happy anniversary in advance!

    And that poem, yum! I close my eyes and see gold, read and beautiful brown leaves ready to walk the Wheel of the Year ;-)

    I love the colors of your words!

  3. Kim, your poem makes me want autumn right NOW!! Beautiful. How great to be married on such a special Wiccan sabbat!!
