Poetry – Bealtaine Beacons


Bealtaine is when we light the fires

Not just for our desires

The things we want and need

Whether in poverty or greed

But simply to connect, to communicate

To let folks know that they are great

That we miss them, that they matter

That we can’t wait to have a natter

Or share a coffee, or a walk

Or sit in silence, no need to talk.

The world isn’t open just yet

But as Bealtaine passes, can we set

Our beacons alight and say

We are here

We care

And so we share

Our Bealtaine beacons with those

Who feed our fires the most.
