Today's challenge topic is:  SAMHAIN or CATHERINE

Cradled in luxury
A beautiful woman
Traumatized by men looking for Carol
Heroically rescued by Vincent in Central Park
Energetically overcoming the trauma and
Rising out of the dark of despair
In Vincent's arms
Now transformed, to a warrior woman
Ever in love and crusading for what is right
------
Shadows and mystery
A cloaked form walking the darkened streets
Making its way to a balcony lit with candles
He takes his hood down from over his head
A lion's face, instead of a human visage
Intense look on his face, watching the doors open.
Night time sharpens, heightens each sensation...

Safe places left behind
Affection grows between kindred spirits
Moonlit magic bewitching the heart
Hallowed hours joyfully embraced
Ancient stories come alive
Impossibilities hold no sway
Nighttime welcomes every dreamer

Catherine

Bravery never dormant
Engaging all worlds with her hope
Authentically herself becoming herself
Ushers in the light of love
Takes help as well as gives it
Yearns for family

Cut and beaten,
Afraid and dying,
Til rescue materialized.
He brought her Below
Even though Father objected,
Renewed her spirit,
Imparted hard-won wisdom.
Now she is his light
Even in his greatest darkness.

Spirits from other worlds
Allowed to roam the streets,
Mingling with humans.
Halloween night -
All things are possible
In the magic of this night,
Night of wonder.

"Can I lead you through the dark
As I claim you as mine tonight?"
"There is no darkness, Vincent, when you're with me;"
Her trust both humbling and sending my heart soaring,
Every fear, every doubt, falling into the abyss of my forgotten aloneness...
Ready at last to surrender it all, light and dark,
Into her loving heart, into her open arms,
Encountering no resistance, accepting, treasuring it all...my Catherine.

Vicky     2/8/2013 5:49:21 AM
Smiling in anticipation,
Anxiously waiting for nightfall,
May not contain the elation
He feels knowing they'll have it all...
As the moon, stars, sounds, smells, and her,
In every fiver of his soul
Need no further confirmation...
