Winter Welcome

The longest night of the year

It is upon us once more

A time to celebrate the deep darkness

Even as we move back toward the light

It is okay to embrace this long cold night-like day

To relish this once yearly opportunity

Within this day of the winter solstice

Celebrate the warmth and the light from within

Embrace the yin yang character of a day filled with night

Sing aloud the joy of the new season

Yet watch for longing, attachment, aversion

And celebrate the depths of the soul
