Winter Solstice

Today, space for contemplation

The slow time

Time for mind wandering

Time for cleaning

A peaceful day

Clear blue skies

Cool and crisp air

Quiet waters and wind.


The ashes

Swept from the hearth

New fire lit,

Some days this I would

Compare to Cinderella work

But today,

Today, I am

(At this point my youngest daughter woke from her sleep, I was going to keep writing but think maybe this is more fitting and contemplative for the shortest day and long night and the season’s turn back to the light).

Happy Solstice with much love
