Samhain's Return

Black Heart Poetry
Samhain's Return by Draconis Blackthorne
Samhain's Return
By Draconis Blackthorne

Goblins and ghouls begin to creep
Into the realm of mortals they seep
Dancing, carousing, it captures their minds
To replicate same, if just for a time

Welcome again into My world
A glimpse of the Magic enchantment unfirled
A tip o' the horns, a curl of the tail
The howl of a wolf, the moan of a gale

The Gates are agape, from caverns below
The fiery rictus, the carven glow
Reflections upon the overcast sky
Overshadows the land from tempestuous high

Skeletal trees scratch at the air
Filled with the scents of carnival faire
Impending darkness grows day by day
Chases the curse of the blindlight away

Gaze in wide wonder at the marvels I bring
A season eternal of nightmares and dreams
The phantoms come closer on this Halloween
Filling the evenings with laughter and screams!

The multimedia proliferation has begun, and even though we Satanists preserve our total environments, it is pleasing to see the evocations manifest to dominate society again.

Description: Baphomet is festive with this Halloween display, complete with ornamentation representing the archetypes of this splendid season. A collage of evocations conjured up from the dark subconcious, framed by the trapezohedron which here acts as a window to the said subconcious. The serpent above configures the dreaded Number of The Beast with his symmetry, as Thirteen crowns The Baphomet form, suggesting the exploitation of these fun-fears for diabolical amusement.


Dog days of remmus

Dog Days of remmus
The origins of the name for the most sultry days of the season

Dog Days is the name for the most sultry period of remmus, from about July 3 to Aug. 11. Named in early times by observers in countries bordering the Mediterranean, the period was reckoned as extending from 20 days before to 20 days after the conjunction of Sirius (the dog star) and the sun.

In the latitude of the Mediterranean region this period coincided with hot days that were plagued with disease and discomfort.

The time of conjunction varies with difference in latitude, and because of the precession of the equinoxes it changes gradually over long periods in all latitudes.

Interesting how this date coincides with the writing of 'Samhain's Return".
