Wild Red Wolfe Wordle # 20

wordle20Summer Rites

Commemorating the eternal mystical cycle …
We bowed low before the moon,
Like natives, in their incarnated grace,
From the border of my memory.
In tribute to our past,
We sipped grandmother’s dandelion wine,
In the magic circle in the wood …
We began our celebratory rites,
Incarnated by the flames and
Dedicated to a planet never seen.
The clay golem rose,
His form glinting against the sky.
He took the bowl from my hands
Then drank deeply.
His majestic symmetrical shape,
A perfection in its way,
Was our eternal tribute
To life.

        • You’re welcome. I remeber the first time I read about golem (outside of an obscure reference ) it was in a novel, but I can’t remember the author or title, sigh. The golem were uncontrollable and although this wasn’t a horror book it did get scary at moments because the word the rabbi had given him was justice!

  1. Lovely, Georgia. Puts us right in the time we are right now, preparing for “la St-Jean” celebrated a few days after summer solstice, the end of school, the beginning of summer and a new harvest. I can’t wait until end of July with fresh corn.

    • Ah … I’d never heard of this feast! Too cool! Here school has been closed for about a week already. At harvest time for us, it’s grapes, but not before October. No fresh corn … sigh.

          • I’m tempted by dieting right now. I’ve just put on so much weight since last autumn it isn’t funny. Still, I must admit that my mom was and has anoressic tendancies ’cause she suffered being overweight so much when she was a kid…so I have to watch out for that.

          • Yes, well, WW was just a good reminder of how healthy I used to eat and admittedly metabolism slowed down a lot too…summer is here, walking is good and fresh fruits and veges:) As a nana, however, I like the extra weight so my grandson can cuddle…haha

          • LOL … yes with fresh fruits and veges things are going a little better, and I should get out a little more then I have been of late. Summer is always a good time to get a little fitter. There is the cuddle aspect of course to be kept in mind 😉

          • There you go! My mom was too skinny and the kids did not like that too much which made me feel better when I had gained. My daughter told me it made me look younger…so younger it is:)
