Winter Solstice 2021

"The edge of the solstice,
the barren darkness,
the wheel.
Nature knows 
that every cycle 
must return
to stillness and silence.
That every inhale 
has an exhale.
That every ending
births a beginning.
That the light
always returns
to a future
beyond imagination."

-- Victoria Erickson, Edge of Wonder

I am looking forward to the extra bit of daylight each day!

I like the short days. I don't get much done but I like feeling that I don't have to.

This is a lovely poem I had not read before. I love its cadence and tone. Thank you for sharing it here.
