Midwinter greetings, everyone!

From today, the days get a little longer, the nights a little shorter, and the Blessed Sun returns. This is that day of turning wheels and dancing light returning, the winter solstice. From this day, daily, the night steps a pace back and the light steps a pace forward.

Blessed light and darkness
Here where your balance
Is tightest, where the tension
Moves close to breaking point,
You turn, and return
Coming back with the coming spring
To the spinning wheel of seasons,
To the balanced moment, to
The next imbalance; ever on,
Eternal, swaying between
One stress and the other,
Extreme and extreme
And all the continuum between
In blessed living dancing, in
Light and darkness.

Happy Winter Solstice, everybody!
