Winter Solstice

I'm ready for the return of the light.  How about you?

This wee poem is a few years old, but still serviceable.


Thoughts on the Winter Solstice
21 December 2006

The sun came up
And the sea of fog brightened
And the milky light of the streetlamps
Paled in the reflective atmosphere

Last night's rain cleared the air
And this morning
The breath of the sea flows in from the west
Yes, it is winter
And again
We move forward into spring

Happy Solstice, friends.  Let's set an intention for peace and joy worldwide.  We all need it.
