Loving You through the Veil

I want to start Witches in Fiction 2015… Death Rites and Remembrances (the pre-party) with love that dares to see the light through the darkest of times. The following poem, inspired by Sunshine Shelle’s “Til Death”, feels just right to my Muse and witchy heart.

“Loving You through the Veil”

My words taste of you,
sing your scent into my dreams
until my all is you and me


Last spring, I rained
morning after morning…
and at night

summer scorched your absence
into my skin.

I await the fall,
when October thins
all barriers,
and you feel me, still

loving you through the Veil.

Something Witchy this Way Comes…

…and it’s carrying stories, poetry, crafts, paintings, myths… lore and rituals associated with celebrating the memories of those whose flesh has left the world of the breathing.

I’ll start sharing pre-Witches in Fiction 2015… Death Rites and Remembrances posts, this coming Saturday. The actual party will take place on October 17th. The pre-party posts will contain poetry, entries inspired by this year’s theme, fiction and giveaways.

The giveaways will include paintings and a gift voucher from Sunshine Shelle, a tarot deck from Three Cats and a Broom, something wee and witchy from Gothic Miniatures, a loved one honoring chest from Eliora, homemade soap and lip balm from Alchemy & Ashes, a smudging mist from Touch of the Goddess, a witchy mini-tea set from Rhissanna, a painting from Magic Love Crow, and several surprises from the wickedest witchy writer of them all.

Until then, say hello to our sponsors… welcome October… if you have any questions about Witches in Fiction 2015… Death Rites and Remembrances, feel free to ask them here. And because parties feed on people, do spread the word, my Wicked Luvs. 😉
