Winter Solstice

Winter Solstice
pastures of plenty
are dormant in the north
asleep, on pause
for a few days of thaws
then light is re-awakened
and begins its return to full strength
our inner light
responds to each day
shining forth
as a presence on display
able to illumine
for others the Way
a way of walking together
towards a new year
feeling the power
kicking up to new gears
balancing speed with the presence of love
into winter we emerge
being the peace we dream of
