It has been cloudy the past two mornings, making the start of the day seem even later than it is. As the solstice approached I began thinking about what the next quarter of the year would bring. I like winter as a time to clean things out and make more order to my domestic world. It is also a nice season outdoors here. I may be ready for spring in February, but not now:
Thank the heavens
winter follows solstice.
How could we turn
in the blink of a day?
I’m not sure “the heavens” are really the source of our season of winter, but having turned my mind to them, I reflect on this question:
Where’s Ison? Did it melt
like Icarus” wings? With no comet
will our days be calmer?
Christmas and New Year’s will be over too soon. I wish everyone a happy winter (or summer for my few readers in Australia) season.
