“On this cold, dark Winter Solstice day”
Posted: December 21st 2018 | Posted in News and Insights
As Winter Solstice reminds us all about the beginnings and endings of life, here’s a short poem that sums up the phase so simply for me:
“On this cold, dark Winter Solstice day
we await the birth of the sun,
to take us into longer days
with more light for everyone.
From this the shortest day of the year
is the promise of hope and light.
The wheel ever turning onwards,
takes us through the longest night.
In between the end and the beginning
the sun stands still it would appear,
before its return northwards
and the start of a bright new year.”
