We sat on the beach for three hours or more, watching in awe as the huge orange orb rose in the southeastern sky. She shimmered and danced for us as the tide went out in ripples and waves. Her reflection on the water sometimes looked like an undulating snake and sometimes like a bellydancer, We sang to Her, and in response Sister Heron came flying out of the darkness to circle round between Her in the sky and us on the beach. Later we were graced by the presence of Owl and Bat and Mouse. We lifted our stones nestled in a clamshell up to Her and asked for boons to be granted. We thanked Her for the blessings of our lives. We giggled and laughed and played in the warm water. We left before midnight with our hearts very full.
