Winter Solstice


Dark mornings

Twilit chill

The countryside bleak with silhouette trees

Snow falls

Moods drop

And sunshine falls off with the tilt of the earth

Bleak are the days as the midwinter reigns

Humans need symbols and signs to survive

Lighting a candle

Or pleading for warmth

Opposes the fear that lie deep in our souls

Will the sun turn away?

Will winter prevail?

Then a glow in the dark

Brings hope and prevision

And meteor showers

Proclaim it will be

A cold moon can’t stop the manifestation

A cycle will end, and another begin

The sun won’t desert us

Aurora returns
