Winter Solstice

Clear, crystalline skies

lit by the Night Beings

that lived so long ago

and still we see their light as though it were

their yesterday

 

And, now, the beginning

of a tomorrow

that begins

a new season

a new cycle

a new year

 

Newness,

like the crisp

fresh

frosty

air that startles the senses

 

Newness that is, itself,

fresh and glistening

in the darkness

of the unknown
