A Poem: Solstice Prayer

by

comment

Winter solstice dim yet star-bright carry us through the deep of night

let not the darkness demolish our faith let not the darkness eat our hope let not

the darkness drink our joy

let not the darkness suffocate our knowing let not the darkness poison our hearts

Winter solstice dim yet star-bright carry us through the deep of night

allow the light to shower forgiveness allow the light to tender healing allow the light to open our hearts

allow the light to render us whole allow the light to bring us home

Winter solstice dim yet star-bright bless us through the deep of night
