“Solstice, Bloody Solstice
And it’s true we are immune
When fact is fiction and TV reality
And today the millions cry
We eat and drink while tomorrow they die
The real battle just begun to claim the victory won on
Solstice, Bloody Solstice
Solstice, Bloody Solstice”

(from “Sunday Bloody Sunday”, with apologies to U2)

“The Winter Solstice is the time of ending and beginning, a powerful time —

a time to contemplate your immortality. A time to forgive, to be forgiven,

and to make a fresh start. A time to awaken.”

— Frederick Lenz

Yard Photos Dec 2009Winter Solstice (December 19, 2009, The Woodlands, Texas) — Computer Art by kenne

A solstice night
in the dead of winter,
strategically placed lighting
on the courtyard wall.

Dark shadows imprinted
beyond the naked trees,
in this gloomy season of mists,
concealing signs of winter’s damage,

where only ghosts abound.
Tomorrow morning

the low sun starts
a minute-by-minute journey back,

not behind, but within
it’s new spring companion.
But for now,
nature remains soulfully raw.

Waxing Of The Sun   2 comments

Sunset December 19, 2015 blog“Waxing of the Sun” — Image by kenne

The waxing of the sun, that

moment of solstice when

everything is still,

everything is silent —

an exotic moment of being

with darkness

giving birth to light

to which we celebrate

the relationship,

the moment of being

in the birthplace of life.

“Perhaps the earth can teach us 
as when everything seems dead in winter
and later proves to be alive.”

We were blessed with a little more the a half-inch of rain, with snow on Mt. Lemmon, the day before the winter solstice. Unlike our friends in the north, made weary by a succession of cold, dark days, we are enjoying the desert sun — yes, we are blessed and very thankful.
