Happy Winter Solstice, or Yule! Of course, our spherical planet also gives us the beautiful symmetry of the Summer Solstice (Litha) being celebrated now by our Southern Hemisphere friends.
Some of the ways many of us are celebrating were published a few weeks ago. For me, between wrapping presents and other final preparations, it’s hard to find time to prepare this short post! In addition to those, Here is a video poetry reading for the Winter Solstice. Happy Solstice!
That’s quite a wonderful poem — thank you. The poetry of light and darkness is irresistible, but it’s tempting to reduce that to a simplistic “good vs. evil.” I appreciate this perspective of honoring the darkness.
Happy Solstice! Merry Yule! May we embrace the darkness as in the poem.
I wish everyone a happy, healthy, peaceful, and creative 2017. Renee
Very beutiful poem!
