Samhain is almost here,
This is my favorite time.
The day when I can be myself,
And no one seems to mind.
A day of ‘trick or treats’ –
You will see a ghoul or two.
With the thinning of the Veil,
A ghost or two may slip through.
If the moon is full and high –
To those like me, this is good news.
Rituals, potions, and chants times three –
Bonfires burn to thwart negative ruse.
A day of open speak –
Unanswered questions breeze in on truth.
Spell casting will be a specialty –
Honoring those that came and went well before you.
However you choose to see this day,
Whatever you choose to do –
Whichever name you choose to call it –
Samhain is a part if you.
