How might you balance what needs adjusting today?
How do you imagine the ‘divine order’ of this life?
When you close your eyes and take a moment of silence, can you see the world a peaceful and abundant place?
24 more days till the light returns. Not that I want to hurry along life; it moves way to fast for us geezers as it is. I do miss the longer days of light. Nature wins. The seasons need their down time, just like we all do. I do get all wintery at this time of year, tho’ maybe not quite so austere. I’m not very austere. Life slows, I feel myself go inward, quieting, shifting the beat of life to a softer rhythm. I imagine what I wish to give to the Earth for safe keeping during these freezing months. What ‘seeds’ (intention) I wish to plant to rise in the Spring greening. Like, planting the seed of gathering my poetry and creating a book. Or, planting the seed of friendship and community. I’d like to plant the seed of love and partnership. What ‘seeds’ might you like to nurture in the silent peace of winter?

Silent winter scape
Bare branch shivers willingly
Roots hold the honey
Lay your seeds to Earth
Blanket in white purity
Reap what you have sowed
Love knows her winter
Cherishes season’s partner
Caress my branches
GRATITUDE FOR TODAY
24 days till the light returns
The gentle patter of rain on the roof
The tidy house
The colorful holiday lights I put up
A great job
