The Winter Solstice
The shortest day of the year, when it was believed that the Sun stood still in the sky... 
…then the next day continued on his way, and the days began to lengthen!


… I knew
winter was in store for every leaf
on every tree on that road.
Was inescapable for each one we passed.
And for me.
It is winter
and the stars are hidden.

"The Pomegranate" ~ Eavan Boland

Winter Lake

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything,
That's how the light gets in.

            “Anthem”~Leonard Cohen

Stonehenge Solstice
“Let the sun shine in.
Open up your heart and let it shine on in.”

            “Hair” ~ James Rado
