“Tipp tapp, tipp tapp, tippetippetipptap, tipp, tipp, tapp.”
Fox came tiptoeing across the gold and silver studded frozen crust, there in the opening where the mountain was sloping downwards. Or climbing upwards – depending on how you see it, where you are coming from , where you are heading.
She burrowed her gentle white-orange head into my flank.
“Love, love, love. I am always where you are. No need to search for me, just listen with tender ears and you will hear me walking in your heart of hearts.”
Crisp hymn, being spun out of the silvery fullmoon-sky, spreading like warmhearted mist across the heavens, in between the pines, filling the space around us.
All were gathered. Folks & peoples, tribes & clans, beings & spirits, four-leggeds, winged ones, two leggeds and down at the lake swimming ones. From all dimensions, all times, all stories, all songs, all traditions. As if we were surfing on a wave of blessings, yet we all were still.
The full moon moved closer. How was that possible?
The nine women walked out in the centre of the crowd, drumming, their moonstone and granite adorned belts making connection with the light of the moon, with the soul of the granite cliffs.
The song pf the trees spreading upwards, outwards as the whole forest keyed in.
Home. Home. Home.
Us. Right here. Right now.
The heart-diamond seemed to explode inside my chest. I tossed my head back, let the first unruly howl out from so many more insides than just the one in this body, from so many centuries, eons, lifetimes.
As we all harmonized I could tell this was not just our song. This was the song. The birth. The letting go. The honouring. The becoming through being.
I looked around me.
White, beautiful, beautiful White. Ever wise, ever loving, ever there, ever stubborn, ever true to herself.
Fox. My HeartFox. Gentle, sturdy, determined. Loyal to love, joy and what she cherishes above nothing else.
Raven, dear Raven. No one makes coffee like Raven. No one calls in Odin and White Wizard like Raven. No one has a sense humour like Raven.
Jake. Always there. Never forgotten, never forgetting. Not needing a task or a template. Happy with being the company, the glue.
Wizard. White Wizard. My dear companion, protection, and witty elder.
Melvinia. Me. I am there. She with the ornamented shield. She who walks with wolves at night. With my clan.
The moon greets us all. We greet her. The silver and gold mist parts by her glow. There, in the mirror of dear Moon, the reflection of Us. All.
The reflection of New Earth.
