I wrote this piece a few years ago for a public Beltane ritual. Like so many others, we were feeling the exclusivity of the hole/pole/cup/knife polarity and wanting to make this blessing something that anybody could get into. Without further ado:
May this Beltane bring you the wildest delights, the most delicious dark dreaming, the sweetest pleasures! So mote it be!
