On Writing

Solstice Poem

the constant dazzle of stars reminds us how to honour –     
the black sky      
the patient moon     
the gathering of light so it can rest
the day with the shortest light 
is the day with the thickest hope
as we fold into the knowing of the night
christmas can be found in every evening’s arch toward morning’s neck –
the promise of love as it passes from the lips of yesterday to now

Thank you poet Mariette for the writing prompt to write a poem using the following words: solstice, light, honour, Christmas, star.
