Winter Solstice

Celebrate the return of the sun
on the winter's solstice

"The wheel of the year has turned once more,
and the nights have grown longer and colder.
Tonight,the darkness begins to retreat,
and light begins its return once again.
As the wheel continues to spin,
the sun returns to us once more
.....even in the darkest hours,
even in the longest nights,
the spark of life lingered on.
Laying dormant,waiting,ready to return
when the time was right.
The darkness will leave us now,
as the sun begins its journey home.
...the light of the sun has returned to us,
bringing life and warmth with it.
The shadows will vanish, and life will continue.
We are blessed by the light of the sun."

-Patti Wigington

My Christmas Haiku

as foretold the son came forth
 the light of the world

  1. Great writings, filled with natural wisdom.

  2. I am writing a story about a witch..wiccan...and have been doing research on such ...I love the connection to nature that a lot of this has...
    I do not worship nature
    but observe and honor its beauty and comfort and joy in my life
    I found this explanation of the w solstice and liked it and thought I would share it..thanks

    I love the daily evolution of the sunset...

    Although did I mention I have over 3 feet of snow on the ground? :)

    Merry Christmas Suz!

  4. I really loved this post and your choice of photos! It makes me think about the spark of creativity that lies within all of us, sometimes dormant,sometimes bursting forth in an inferno of flames, but always there, whether we know it or not!
    Here's to the days getting longer again!!!

  5. 3 feet of snow!!! oh my..we got 5 inches last night and I groaned
    Snuggle time girl....
    Oh Robin..I love those photos too..of places where ancients celebrated the arrival of the sun through openings in stone..and the carving of the three wavey circles..awesome
    You are right the sun really goes no where..it's there..it's we who move..winter is the time for life to rest be dormant and to get ready for the calling of the sun..to come forth
    You Robin, have more than a spark of creativity in you! I've seen your artwork...here's to the Sun and for winter's resting time
