Todays blog includes a friend/author of mine, with the pseudo name, A.M. Salt. We will be sharing my blog for the next month or so. Enjoy our different styles, our different ways we find ourselves calling up the words that feel like they need saying.
WHAT WE IMAGED
Vast is the presence of the infinite
Empty in the unknown
Spacious beyond comprehension
Waiting for a message
Fingertips poised for the tap
The mundane gathers the call
Waiting for the whisper of a gift
Feeling the sureness of words
That the cosmos will deliver
Hard is the buzz of the amour stink bug
In the immediacy of the invite
Hidden in the folds of the curtains
The winged buzz threatens a landing
Breaking into Empty presence
A thief of the silent waiting.
Hands and arms flapping it away
Utterances of unkindnesses
Knowing the creepy feel of that crawl
The awareness now seeks to awaken
This traveler that meets the intrusion
with resistance and a curse
What say you armored bug?
Gift me with your presences
Share the vastness of this Now
I give you freedom in winter chill
As the last bit of life of you
Speaks to the One Heart
In the Empty presence of
The vastness that is in All
Wisdom is in everything

If I ever forget
the trout that rose
behind the biggest stone
in the middle of the stream
the year that just my Mother and I
went to fish camp
Remind me, would you?
Its snout surfaced
to take a Blue Olive
drifted just so over the top of the rock
and spilled into the eddying pool.
Remind me how the orange maples’
reflection shone on its back.

Today is Winter Solstice. The shortest day, the longest night. Tomorrow the light returns. The Sun is called back to light the days.
How will you light your days and give rest to your nights?
What Wisdom is calling to you for you to listen more deeply?
What does it mean for you to feel the fire in your soul?
One of the things I noticed about the numbers of today. All 2’s and 1’s., that all add up to 2. The number of the Priestess, the number of exchange. When one is no longer enough and needs other to share life with, to counsel with, to find a deeper meaning to knowing relationship with other and self. Today is an opportunity to trust your intuition, to understand your accountability in the world you share with others, and to know that you are not ever alone. That you are a Light unto yourself, ever shining, returning to your Source, be that God, Goddess, Oneness, Source, Spirit, you are of that Infinite Light that calls you forth to be your best self, your highest self, Love Divine.
That is this Winter Solstice. The shortest day exchanges it’s self with each one of us. Inviting you to consider this cycle of darkness to light, to darkness, to light. And… that they light knows darkness intimately, as does darkness know light.
Crystalline snowflake falling
Pattern gives meaning
Stories in Seasons do tell
Know your Winter tale
You have always known
Forgotten is illusion
Now is all there is
DAY ONE OF SOLSTICE HAIKU
Short are the dark days
Light keeps her promise return
Winter has arrived
Soul-tis of the light
Gives winter rest to ponder
Till Spring finds her green

How do you stay focused and grounded?
What have you a passion for that you keep putting off?
What step can you take to shine the light on your passion?
My eyes opened waaaay too early this morning. I’m thinking of writing and taking a nap. HAAA.. like that will happen? Right?
Tomorrow will be the ‘darkest’ / shortest day of the year. Winter Solstice, in the Northern Hemisphere, will occur early morning on the 22cd. For me it is a time of reflection on the year gone by, and a time to ponder what I will bring into the coming days of the light returning. Where do I wish to shine my light? How in these coming winter days of quiet and cold will I bring the light of me up and out? What might I focus on, give my light to, in the coming days? Questions to sit with and allow my inner wisdom to find the answers, the flow, the possibilities.
Where in your life needs more ‘light’? How will you let yourself shine?
