“Beyond the visible, Mother Moon
slips behind a starry blue blanket,
turning dark, she recedes in order …”

Dear Poets and Dreamers,
Guided by a dream at Imbolc, like a moon-gazing hare, I followed Mother Moon throughout Her eight phases – Dark Moon, Waxing Crescent, First Quarter, Waxing Gibbous, Full Moon, Waning Gibbous, Last Quarter, Waning Crescent – a difficult task following the death of my father on Day 15 and the onset of war on Day 24. And although the muses knowingly kept these events out of my poem, know these events will be forever remembered under February 2022’s ever-changing Mother Moon. ~ Love and light, Deborah.
