Solstice Prayer

As I pondered our seasonal turn to winter, this fell out of my fingers. Happy Solstice to all.

Solstice Prayer

Light a candle against the darkness.

Light a fire, watch it burn.

Beneath the warmth of extra blankets,

dream deeply as the seasons turn.

Feel the light always within you,

your connection to the divine.

Like roots beneath a forest,

we are all intertwined.

Plant dream seeds in the moonlight.

Your heart knows they will grow.

A spring garden of beauty and love awaits you

when it is time to reap what we sow.

    Thank you so much. I always feel like this while I’m watching the Hanukkah candles burn each year. It’s such a lovely season to step back, slow down, and enjoy the time. May you have wonderful holidays and a marvelous New Year.
