Midwinter's Day

Midwinter Greetings to all!

Midwinter's Day

From tomorrow
We start back up the hill
And the year
Will remember the idea of spring.

From tomorrow
The fallen leaves
Begin to break down, renew the earth
As their fate demands.

From tomorrow, the day
Is a few seconds,
A few minutes,
A few bare breaths of time longer than today.

From tomorrow
Though the full moon wanes
The empty year
Begins to wax again.

And the world’s strength
Gathers anew.
