Illustration for Luna Arcana Issue 2 – Walking

This illustration was created to accompany this poetry:

Walking the Land
by Penelope Sitter

Spirits walk this land. Here where native feet
fell before, where ancient lives passed, now we walk.
Now we in thanks take hold where we long to know
who held and were held here.

Dreams inhabit here. We dream life shared once
for all. We dream with those who long before
dreamed here. Day by well-lived day as we build
we know their spirits strong here.

Light shines searing bright here. As thick clouds drop
desert rain to bless and bring the life of spring,
we know and we praise rain that wets and
light that blazes here.

Spirits walk this land. We honor them and all
they loved: the sparse creosote, the gold-gray sands,
this rocky life. With coyote, snake, hare and hawk,
we now stalk here.

Hunab Ku – The Giver of Movement & Measure

Solstice Blessings, may the light shine deeply within You~

Prayer to the four directions by Valum Votan:
From the East, House of Light,
may wisdom dawn in us so we may see all things in clarity.
From the North, House of Night,
may wisdom ripen in us so we may know all from within.
From the West, House of Transformation,
may wisdom be transformed into right action, so we may do what must be done.
From the South, House of the Eternal Sun,
may right action reap the harvest so we may enjoy the fruits of planetary being.
From Above, House of Heaven,
may star people and ancestors be with us now.
From Below, House of Earth,
may the heartbeat of her crystal core bless us with harmonies to end all war.
From the Center, Galactic Source,
which is everywhere at once, may everything be known as the light of mutual love.
*Oh Yum, Hunab Ku, Evam Maya E Ma Ho!
Oh Yum, Hunab Ku, Evam Maya E Ma Ho!
Oh Yum, Hunab Ku, Evam Maya E Ma Ho!
