what began as year-long challenge has become perpetual until further notice
Samhain marks the beginning of winter, the darker part of the year. It is a time when the wall between the worlds of the living and dead fall away and the souls of departed ancestors are encouraged to join the tables of the living, for an evening.
As in most Celtic-based countries, in the Antipodes, Samhain (All Hallows Eve) is held on October 31, although technically – because of the seasonal opposites – Beltane (30th April/1st May) and Samhain are the other way round.
“Samhain at Jane Court”
Cats fought and loved on the doorstep
I forgot it was Beltane
actually, Samhain, here
on this big
the nights drawn long enough
for beloveds to show themselves
etched against the dark
at a reasonable hour
I went outside
and the cold cloaked me
like a tea buddy
clapped me on the back
you’ve turned everything off
in the studio”
but I had to check
and all the way outside
in the yard
and on the way back
in the dark
even the cold left me to it
and I felt watched
and I thought of the membrane
like a skin over cooling milk
like the third eyelid of a kitten
or the body twitch from the dream that wakes.
