Winter Solstice

Unfold the day.
From early darkness, back to early darkness, there are but short moments touched by the sun.
This is the day the Earth pauses
Takes breath
And yearns for sleep and rest after a long year.

Fold up the year
Pack away regrets and might have beens, sigh over moments lost, and let them go
This is the day that marks their end
Take breath
And take a moment just to be who you are.

Stand still, like the sun
Be still, like the Earth
Take breath.

This is the day for endings
This is the day to wait
For new beginnings and a new start.
Fold yourself around yourself
Simply be.

The sun will rise again tomorrow.

And so will you.
