Dionysus/Bacchus/St. Patrick/Celtic tree month of Nuin ends/Egyptian Day

Trefuilnid Treochair, the national day of Ireland. The feast for “the triple bearer of the triple key,” the trident-bearing Celtic divinity assimilated to St. Patrick, whose sacred plant is the shamrock.

The Pagan Book Of Days, Nigel Pennick

A Coat — William Butler Yeats
I made my song a coat
Covered with embroideries
Out of old mythologies
From heel to throat;
But the fools caught it,
Wore it in the world’s eyes
As though they’d wrought it.
Song, let them take it
For there’s more enterprise
In walking naked.
_________________________
Go back,
Go back to sleep.
Yes, you are allowed.
You who have no Love in your heart,
You can go back to sleep.

The essence of Love
is exclusive to us,
you go back to sleep.
I have been burnt
by the fire of Love.
You, who have no such yearning in your heart,
You can go back to sleep.

The path of Love,
has seventy-two folds and countless facets.
Your love and religion
is all about control, deceit and hypocrisy,
you go back to sleep.

I have torn to pieces my robe of speech,
and have let go of the desire to converse.
You who are not naked yet,
You can go back to sleep.

— Rumi

The Lovers
will drink wine night and day.
They will drink until they can
tear away the veils of intellect and
melt away the layers of shame and modesty.
When in Love,
body, mind, heart and soul don’t even exist.
Become this,
fall in Love,
and you will not be separated again.

— Rumi

“When you’re in these kind of different circumstances which you find yourself in where you feel so alone with all of the aspects of life for which you’re so frustrated, it’s not because of anything that isn’t human. Humans do these things. It’s just that you’ve been separated from that which you really want.” — T.S.
