Winter Solstice

Sharing a little poem I wrote for the Winter Solstice in 2006...

Original painting by Matt Armington as inspired by poem. (Thank you Matt!)

Solstice Night

The moonless air is still
and dark.
Shadowless we wait
with eyes skyward
and frozen breath
into the night.

Deep within our souls
we ache
with desire to embark
upon the timeless journey,
of night into day,
dark into light.

All wings must rest
marking the time
until the heart calls.
Suspended in slumber
time for flight.

Crystalline silken threads
on winter dreams
by cryptic mystic spiders
lacing lives and loves
within a fragile web.

Diamond stars sparkle
from the shadowed realm
point to awakened roots
taking hold within us,
slender slivers of hope.
