Soul of the Solstice

Beneath the growing shadow of this earth,
there is a winter solstice always rising.
Name it love. It energizes action—
in a way that sunshine lends its light to life.
We always reach towards it despite the fact
we may not know it. We may be caught within
the cold of some incredible desire
to compensate ourselves for something we think
we’ve lost. But light is always there and pure
and we are never in the need for its
return—for light is always in its light.
