* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

WHERE HAVE YOU GONE?
by Elspeth Sapphire

Lifetime companion...
Where have you gone?
I thought that your place was at my side forever,
Your warmth beside me in my bed.
Now I find myself watching for you
Hearing a noise at the door ....
But only finding empty air and memories.
Funny ... it is the things I hated
That I find I miss the most.
I find myself saving tidbits
But how do you feed a spirit?
I remind myself of cycles;
That death is a beginning ...
And never an ending ...
But I am only too aware
I am barren and alone.

Oh, where have you gone?
Is that your touch brushing by?
Or will you live within me ...
Until that day that we meet again.
Oh, lifetime companion....

As is ours.

 
I am behatted and my candle is lit.

I don't know of any poetry written for or by Marilyn (which might be a fault of my memory, rather than that there is none) but her story "The Washer at the Laundromat" is not inappropriate here.  All three of those we remember today was, each in her own way, a warrior.

If you want to participate, please post in here. Everyone, regardless of religion, is welcome to participate. If you can't participate at 8pm your time, feel free to pick a different hour, I can promise you that neither Chavi, Elspeth, nor Marilyn would have been sticklers about the time.

 
I'm in.

Thank you, Sunflower. I think that's quite appropriate.

I couldn't find a lighter (there's one in my room, but I'm avoiding the construction area in the hallway) so I have three battery-powered tea lights going.  I figured they wouldn't mind much.

Thanks for linking it, Sunflower.

I am behatted as well, and my candle is burning- almost burnt out, actually, so I need to go replace it.

My candle has been lit for about an hour and will burn all night.

No avatar hat for me, though.  That's beyond my current technical abilities. But I have a real hat on my bedpost to remind me.

I have one of hers hanging on my dining room wall:

~~~

The crowing of the cock has brought a rending.
And the rising of the sun has set to mending.
All the terror that the fearsome one was sending.
Now the barking of the dark at last is ending.


~~~

It is untitled. She left it as a comment in a thread here. It spoke to me at all ages. It helped me. So I asked her if I could use it in a painting and she very kindly obliged. She wrote that she sometimes left little things like this around the net. How awesome is that?! What a wonderful person.

Absent is present in my mind each morning when I see that poem.

Me too.
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

Candle lit at 8pm; I'll continue to burn it until I go to bed. No silly hat on my avatar; beyond my capacity tonight. Wearing one in spirit.

Lyric and I had a candle burning from mid-morning until 10pm last night. This is hard every year, but it is particularly hard in years when we have just lost long time friends from TC.

I had a candle lit from when I got up at 5.30am until I went to bed at 10pm.

You are right. It really was difficult this year.....

Sorry I didn't have a chance to check in last night. I had a candle burning from 7pm until about midnight.
