Irresistible Magic by Janine M. Donoho

Crepuscular rays illuminating deer skullEven when you grasp the science,

Magic persists.

Light and shadow bending through a natural spectrum as

Crepuscular rays illuminate a snag.

A deer’s skull–

Past meets present.

Brocken spectrum lighting the trees behind meBrocken spectrum casts silhouettes against a fogbank–

The legerdemain of branches like fingers.

Ridgeline trees materialize. 

 What lies before you?

Prismatic light shining on Egyptian Goddess Ma'atEgyptian Goddess Ma’at in prismatic light–

Winged to balance feather

Against soul.

Take her into yourself.

Medusa snag in light fogMedusa snags reach out to

Sustain you in


Embrace the enchantment of

Circadian glamours.Fog illuminating snag with deer skull

True North by Janine M. Donoho

Anna's Hummingbird

The science of true north

Bundles in magnetic snouts

Of rainbow trout or the 

Cryptochrome eyes of Anna’s Hummingbirds.

Even cows align along axes north-to-south.

Lacking their animal magnetism

I face into polar winds

Cascading from icy fields

Where Auroras shimmer.

My shivering hounds race toward me–

A locus of heat and comfort.

Aurora Borealis
