The Magic of The Dragonfly: Poetry in Motion

Red, Devil's needle, Or luck bringer with kind eyes? Ancient, sweet fellow, Sacred magic bestower, Change tumbling on fragile wings. I added the last line as the dragonfly has such a short life like the butterfly and change can be fragile unless we encourage and nurture it and learn to be our better self. Recently, …

Draw a Bird Day: Grackle

Spend some time with the ‘magical’ Grackle! Painting and poetry by Kerfe. Can’t you feel the energy?

Every beach vacation comes with its own bird. One year it was mockingbirds, one year a very vocal cardinal.  One year, crows.

This year we were accompanied by grackles. They would sit on the railing of the beach house speaking in their rusty tongue, lined up like soldiers. If one turned, all turned.  Once they saw someone was paying attention they would vocalize a bit more and suddenly disappear.

On the beach they appeared ahead of my walking path and waited for me, foraging in the waves. As soon as I caught up, they flew off ahead again.

Although it’s natural to see their iridescent strutting as a variation on crows, grackles are actually part of the lark family, related also to blackbirds and orioles.

But they do have a connection to crows—all back birds are said to know magic, to live on the borders of the possible unknown.

Slip Into Mabon

Slip
into
Mabon and
celebrate the
rituals of the
season by sharing food,
counting one’s hidden blessings,
honoring the mother goddess,
filled with an endeavor to succeed
by remembering our ancestor’s truth.
