The earth tilts away from the light
So we must lean forward
And light candles.
After a year of change
that is both welcome and unwelcome,
And a year of rising up and sinking down,
of community and solitude,
of creation and bureaucracy:
All very interesting
And really, a little too interesting.
May you be blessed with light in the darkness, warmth in the cold, glitter in the snow and a joyful winter solstice.
