The Duat into Summer

Gemini Sun, old Gemini Moon.

Keeping the idea of light alive all through the deepest night of the year – candles burning against the dark on East and West altars.

Until the morning, five-to-seven, when the Lord of Light arose once more. The Child of Promise born to us by the Great Mother.

Suddenly, the Liquidamber trees are bare; skeletal branches outlining the perfect tree-shape, the duat against the ice blue sky. A doorway into Summer.

As slowly, slowly, with the creeping pace of a pendulum at the furthest reach of its swing, the daylight hours start once more to increase. And we traverse another turn of the spiral, outwards this time.

Yellowwood, Silver Oak and Razor Wire: NorthEast corner. The sun’s there somewhere.
