On a gust of icy air
Marking the sacred solstice
Decorated with bells,
Candy canes, fireworks

Arriving under cover of night
With jeweled stars above
And snowy vistas below
Gaia’s children safely asleep

Winter came, softly
Like an old blanket
Abating the sun
Eclipsing the moon

The fire of life
Has cooled to an ember
It will shine brightly soon enough
But for now

  1. There is an image of a winter day, late as sun is setting, in with anticipation of something yet to come. Santa maybe?
