    All Hallow's Eve


    On All Hallow's Eve…




    Halloween may seem like it's all about costumes and candy, but the holiday — which is relatively new to America, having only become popular in the early 1900s it's roots began in pagan beliefs. Dating back about 2,000 years, Halloween marked the Celtic New Year and was originally called Samhain, which translates to "summer's end" in Gaelic.

    Some Halloween traditions, such as carving Jack-o'-lanterns, are based on Irish folklore and have been carried on throughout the centuries, while others are more relatively new.

    Black Cats

    Often used as symbols of bad luck, black cats grace many Halloween decorations. The black cat's bad reputation dates back to the Dark Ages, when witch hunts were commonplace. Elderly, solitary women were often accused of witchcraft, and their pet cats were said to be their "familiars," or demonic animals that had been given to them by the devil. The myth follows that Satan turned himself into a cat when socializing with witches.

    Jack-O'-Lanterns


    A fun fall activity, carving Jack-o'-lanterns actually has its roots in a sinister, tragic fable. Celtic folklore tells the tale of a drunken farmer named Jack who tricked the devil, but his trickery resulted in him being turned away from both the gates of heaven and hell after he died. Having no choice but to wander around the darkness of purgatory, Jack made a lantern from a turnip and a burning lump of coal that the devil had tossed him from hell.

    Bats


    Medieval folklore also described bats as witches' familiars, and seeing a bat on Halloween was considered to be quite an ominous sign. One myth was that if a bat was spotted flying around one's house three times, it meant that someone in that house would soon die.

    As Samhain drew near, I wandered through Teos

    Amassing trinkets and herbs for decorous altars

    While crossing unfit lands, beings of the night lurked

    A serene light blazed forth amongst a decaying lab

    I felt drawn to the light, urging me to step closer

    Raising staff to part veil, unexpected change occurred

    No longer a mere seeker of baubles and plants

    A power pulsed through me, altering my very aspect

    Dark clouds separated, revealing changes without

    I had become one of the inhabitants of Shaiya.

    A dagger of illumination led my marshy footfalls

    As beings of unrest mischievously followed the lead

    Enlightened paths edged by briary bone-strewn hurdles

    Hungered beasts lunging forth from grassy notches

    Bare and aged hardwoods ribbing rivulet shores

    Gothic statuary guarding abandoned pantheons

    Daringly welcoming all to enter forsaken walls

    Darkened halls silently leading towards unseen forces

    Winged creatures, bodiless spirits, restless zombies

    Abound within the ancient corridors and dank chambers

    Abominations reaching for the mortal life within

    While winged nemeses darken seeing eyes along the way

    Dragons pushing passerby towards ensconced exits

    Hidden within bouldered bends, a companion found

    Coulrophobia escorting weary feet in horseless wagons

    Winged foes armed by fiery hurled orbs protecting

    Sword carrying walking bones guarding golden chalice

    Totems standing tall warning of forsaken villages

    Moats of blood encircling emptied precious towers

    Poisonous spiders chasing through dimly lit passageways

    Skeletons following soon victims along bloodied floors

    Forces of goblins joining hunts for unsurrendered life

    Spidery webs offering little hope of sought protection

    Smoking dragons enshrouding sought out entrances

    Clouded mines, ensnarled supports, graveless spirits

    Only shambles remain left from a chaotic devastation

    All these areas I searched, all these things I witnessed

    As I gathered my herbs and trinkets for an altar's rituals.
