Samhain Goddess by ArwensGrace Samhain Goddess by ArwensGrace
Happy Halloween everyone :D

"It is Samhain ...The Night of Shadows.
The Circle is cast around the fire,
And through the darkness, we glance,
For the veils are thin, in this sacred night!
Ancient voices around us,
Whispering old and forgotten songs,
While we dance the Spiral Dance,
To meet Her.
And there She comes,
The Lady of the Gate!
Power and compassion evolving us,
As a dark but comforting wave.
Beautiful Queen of the Dark Night!
With Her mantle of raven's feathers,
And eyes deep with wisdom.
Cerridwenn!
She opens Her arms,
in a welcoming embrace,
We feel around us the flow of love,
Of Her Eternal Grace.
And then we hear Her voice,
Melodious and grave,
That speaks from inside our soul,
As an echo in a cave.
Blessed Daughters of My Heart,
I hear your prayers from afar.
And that is why I came tonight!
Do not despair when the times are hard!
Do not abandon the Path you found!
For time has come for My return,
And you, Loved Ones, shall open the way,
Singing my name as the ancient bards.
I am always with you, do never doubt that!
I am the Old and the Young One!
I am the Keeper of the Gate!
I am the Master of Time!
I am the Dark Goddess of Death!
I am the Bright Goddess of Dawn!
I am The One!
I am Cerridwenn!"

I love this art print. Are you Angie Latham from www.celtic-photography.co.uk  ? If so, thanks for giving me permission last year to use this in a dark moon ritual I was constructing.

I found this image online years back when I set my first steps on the pagan path...
Love it and thank you many times!

I've seen this around the web before and I really loved it. I'm glad I finally found the artist. This is a beautiful piece and obviously perfect for Samhain.
