Solstice Blessings

Message_1499569181268and the world was ever quiet

as darkness had its grip

a deep silence settled over

the frost and cold did nip.

 

but the sun god is born this day

holly king hands over throne

great celebrations must be had

for the light returns home.

 

and in the starlit wee eve hours

we light a fire and smile

read by lantern and plan our year

bask in darkness awhile.

 

The sun will stay longer each day

the darkness’ breath breaks

the hopeful world is all anew

speak kindly to the fates.

 

Sweet solstice blessings to you all

in firelight friends do meet

transformation is upon us

the light is ever sweet.

 

Happy Yule!
