Poem for the Winter Solstice
Here is the poem I will be reading:
No more hurry
Time now for firelight
for church bells
with the cold,
inside of you
a kernel of courage
each day, more light.
- Irene Latham
I can't wait to hear what others will be sharing! What poem would YOU share on the topic of "winter" or "light" ?
And, here, just for fun, is the Little Bear "Winter Solstice" episode. Lanterns and snow angels... and a song! (The night is cold, the snow is cold, Grandmother loves winter, and I do, too!) We loved watching this when the kids were small. :)

Love your poem! I've already copied it for my writer's notebook. I wish I could join your celebration of poetry tonight. I'm looking for a poem I wrote about lights in the bus tunnel. I really need to add labels to all my blog posts!ReplyDelete
I'm sure it was a luminescent gathering! Thanks for sharing YOUR light, my friend. Love that "courage unfurling."ReplyDelete
