winter

The Sleeping Village

Night time.

 

The moon appears, faint in the distance.

 

Darkness has settled,

 

Heavy like a blanket.

 

It is cold outside, a sliver of winter.

 

Warm inside.

 

Heat comes from a sturdy stove;

 

A fragrance of home,

 

A reassuring lull,

 

The promise of morning.

 

The village sleeps.

Winter Night

Night falls,


 

The sky dark and silent,


 

The moon in the distant,


 

A crescent barely visible.


 

The temperature drops,


 

A freeze that hovers,


 

Tormenting, merciless cold.


 

Winter.

Deep In The Forest

Deep in the forest.

 

A coat of snow.

 

An outline of sun,

 

Peeping through branches.

 

Zero temperature.

 

Static stillness.

 

A wooden hut,

 

Surrounded by snow.

 

Shelter.

The Winter Poem

Winter, the longest season of all.

 

Deceptive sunlight.

 

A hint of frost.

 

Snow may fall sooner or later.

 

The evenings continue to draw in early.

 

Dawn is delayed.

 

The winter stillness lingers

 

Raw and deep and icy cold.

SEASONS IN HELL


 

 


Season Lucifer

Upon the longest night of The Year, we celebrate in darkness, and all therein, as hellfires burn to warm the flesh into salacious indulgence, yielding to temptation and feasting with delight, the pleasures of the earth lain forth for you, The Devil's Legions, the harvests of The Seasons in Hell, and before Satan's myriad manifestations, reflected in the shadow speculum and projected by the Demon Eye, visions of what was and is to be again, emerge from The Mind's Abyss, & vast subterranean cavernous lairs.

The Season is Lucifer! Lend us Thine Infernalight! 

Upon this High Unholyday, the apex of Satanalia, 'neath a Full Moon & Meteor shower coursing, The Lucifer star glows with infernalight in the Eastern Sky, pointing the way to The Gates which shall be opened! Daemon Brother Krampus has come forth! Within the Void of deepest nocturne, bring forth the sacrifices to blaze on through the night!  

HAIL SATAN! HAIL LUCIFER! SO IT IS DONE!

In Nomine Satanas,

Warlock Draconis Blackthorne
Noctuary, The Black Earth
Winter Solstice LIII


RITEHELLEMENTAL MASS



Author's Notes/Comments: 

Just shortly upon the summit we celebrate the incarnations of Dionysus {Lust}, Mithras {Strength}, & Horus {Wisdom}, collectively regeneration!

Seasons In Hell

With the opening of The Gate, Hell has come to earth
Blackened 'neath the Krampus flames, He has emerged 
Glorious by Draegon wings resplendant
For by the Hellmouth of The Draegon the land was made The Abyss
Allowing the Winter Daemon to emerge through the portal upon this very night
Invocation bringing forth and taking form
The Draegon's wings did fan the flames to spread His Hellement forth
For by the call of many minds & by directive force, The Shadowmancer brought him forth, & so The Spell was done

As the black lion travels forth upon the earth to and fro, devouring whom He may
As every sacrifice inspires further strength & might
May the Hellfires burn! May the Demon winds flow fierce! 
And by the sign delivered & possessed, the manifestation transpired again and again!

Omens alight the nyte sky with dread visions manifest
Satanas arises high to call forth His Witches' best
Macabra! Mystique! Pandora! Synthea! Dementia! Arius! Sinistra sublime!
On leathern wings to ride The Beast, unleash The Draegon's Eye!
Sup The Chalice, Thorn & Vine, Pitchfork scepter in cleft & thigh!

In Nomine Satanas,

Warlock Draconis Blackthorne
The Black Earth, Infernal Empire
Satanalia Winter Solstice LII

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Hellfires warm cold flesh unto the sentiments of Lust! May the devils come forwards, covorting with salacious abandon, to indulge in debaucherous abandon, 'neath the approving gaze of Baphomet.

Frost

Folder: 
Just For Fun

Frost lies on my windowsill

From winter's frozen rain

Makes waking up now just too hard

And looking out a pain

Because inside is nice and warm

With coffee or coco

Perhaps I'll just go back to sleep

And dream about the snow.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Yes, it's early, but I was thinking of frost and it popped into my mind in a flash.

Beneath Krampusnacht Moon

Folder: 
Satanalia

Krampus DemonHellfires burn... The scent of flesh
Wailing on the demonwinds
The beatings of Abyssal skins
Echoing of bones
Blood upon the bramble thorns
Trailing to the foggy Pit
The bells are rung...

Chains echo from below
Krampus Demon, Winter Devil
Eyes aglow in the dark
Outside your window haunt

Prepare the sacrifices
The saintly one denies
Hellmouth opens wide
Into The Cauldron, Feast of Beast
Offering complete
Beneath Krampusnacht Moon

Hills of fire, build the pyre
Bodies on the spikes
Dread shadows arise
Cloven hooves arrive
Upon Krampus night

Unholy procession
Through the snow and flames
Calling to your name
Pentagram of blackened coal
Brimstone, sulfur soul...

Inferno rejoice tonight
A nubile harvest of plight
Devoured and enslaved
Beware those phantoms in the shadows
Branded with The Devil's mark
A lesson learned of fear and dread
Or never to be seen again
Beneath The Krampus Moon

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Demon Brother Krampus comes forth with yulefire in his wake

The Off Grid Life

the off-grid life.

untied from the shackles of strife,

2017, the modern existence,

getting on the property ladder, how does anyone have a chance?
20, 25 or 30, forced to work to pay every bill,

going to work all hours, struggling to find a way, a life against our will,

needing the money from any form of work, mostly unprogressive, unhappy 
life passing by, frustrating, anger, decreasing self-worth, causing individuals to be snappy

unfulfilled, potentials are not met, working a job all day, unable to progress,

money is the key factor, for bills to be met, let me digress.

often they still aren't causing pain and suffering, stress and depression,

homelessness is rife through the country, a feeling of regression,

a feeling of being stuck, how to retrain and improve your careers?
speak to friends or family and the same conversation, doubts, and fears
if only another option was available,

one that was accepted and not just for the vulnerable,

the homeless, the people with nothing,

but how is this existence different? it is truly crushing,

once you can see that your life is consumed with working for money,

the soul has passed, your energy too, it can get so hard it's not even funny,

but who understands? in the face of consumerism, higher purchase, loans, and debt,

who is living a life, truly satisfied, and their dreams are met?

Not all people living off-grid are rich in cash!
but they aim for other needs; security in food & energy, it's worth a bash,


 

a growing transition for many people too,

it's not just for the hippies, the spiritual, it's for people like me and you,

think about it for a moment or two...

who would you be without your car, house and your possessions?
is that person you portray the real you? or do you blend in so people don't ask questions?
are you honest with your family and friends?

or do you sit behind a desk wishing it would end?
there is a wealth of knowledge of old traditions,

from a time when they lived without these conditions,

the conditions of social media, advertising, marketing ads or vlogs

when screen time didn't consume every waking hour, and children were fascinated with tadpoles transforming into frogs.

hours spent outside, climbing trees, playing at the park,

not allowed home unless it was tea time or had gotten dark.

 

a shift is happening, ecotherapy, wild schooling, bushcraft, and hikes,

forest schooling, homeschooling, people walking and out on their bikes,

scientists are noticing the effects on children's behaviors, reduced health issues,

ADHD,  also a boost in self-awareness, positivity, confidence and mental health issues

is it easier to sit a child down to hours in front of the tv, or ipad?

than it is to spend a few hours playing down the park with dad?

or baking a cake with mum, the importance of these skills are being misplaced,

in this consumerism world, with employees a number, in a life so fast-paced.

 

Off-grid living, the communities hidden away,

all they want is a parcel of land to look after their needs, but hey,

that's not possible, 'cause where will the local council get their tax,

with the community, living off the land, growing food and chopping wood with an axe,

the need and usage of government-owned services would become minute,

living simply and within your skills of the land, renewables used, an abundance of fruit,

food preserved in many forms, jams and chutneys, frozen meat,

enough food to last year-round to survive through winter, or in the heat,

the food produced off the land, tending the garden, and grown for nutrition,

the most important for life and health also said to aid in remission.

off grid homesteaders, don't need to take the flack,

with health as the focus, working outdoors to provide, lowering the need for prozac,
comments from shallow minded people need not be said,

the power of community, working together, I want to spread,

to include children in the transition, of conserving nature and our wildlife,

 

the tranquil setting amongst the seasons, watching the stars, that's my type of nightlife.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This is my first time sharing my poetry, (after a few friends encouraged me that I should) please be kind and send your thoughts.

Also all words are opinions of myself in the modern world that we live in. 

This is not meant to cause offense, harm, upset to anyone, and if it does please understand that is not my intention.

 

Many thanks,
