Hallowed Light

8 Comments »

Listen to this song:

We are stars fallen down to earth
Kissed-cold with darkness, burning.
We reckon out each moment from our birth.
Finding new ways to shine.

Band together, earthly ones!
Blend your brightness whole, and sing!
Reclaim the wings of angels, strong,
Bring forth now, the change!

We are the ones

We seed the earth,
With hallowed light.
The core burns through
This longest night.

There is no apocalypse to come,
No messiah leads our journey
There is now this chance to turn the wheel,
For sleeping ones to rise!

Band together, earthly ones!
Blend your brightness whole, and sing!
Reclaim the wings of angels, strong,
Bring forth now, the change!

We are the ones

We seed the earth,
With hallowed light.
The core burns through
This longest night.

We are these sleepers, waking from long night.
We are anointed ones who claim this sun.
Dawn now. Shine now. Burn brightly. Live.

While working on my annual Winter Solstice poem, I realized – Monday morning – that it was really a song. I contacted Winter of El Mundo Bueno Studios to see if he had any time to work on it. We spent a couple of hours on the project Monday afternoon and this is the result. While we may go back in at a later date to finesse some things, for now, it is my Solstice gift to you. If you care to make any donations to Solar Cross for our various projects, it will be appreciated, but not expected. Click on the link at the top to listen! Blessed be.

    I love this! The message of this song deeply mirrors the conversation that I had last night with a Christian friend of mine. We were speaking on the origins and mythos of Lucifer. I embrace the truth and power of light and the awareness that it brings! In fact I am actually feeling the stirrings of a ritual to honor the Luciferian rogue deity for the solstice and the return of the sun to our lives! Thank you for sharing this beautiful poem and affirming that this conversation is one that is being had beyond myself.

    Thorn, thank you for this! I cannot think of a better Solstice Gift! :) I seriously LOVED the music, the lyrics, everything! And I can’t wait until I can hear it play in my local Goth music club, lol! (no, really, I can totally see the crowd I hang out with completely grooving to this on the dance floor…!)

    Hope you are well!

    I love that voice … just shared it … somewhere … anyhow, one suggestion … the cricket high-beat-per minute part sounds a bit underwhelming, liked the pace, but … how about more of a trancy shimmering melotronic sky going over the top of all of that bass offered here … dunno, might be a bit messy … just being beautiful mindsy today.

    Yep, gave it to Layla Occupie Mom on FB as something to as a portion of today’s Occupational Festivus … um … nativities … also this, your pronunciation of the word, “apocalypse” in song was exquisite … totally agree, as well.
