Suspended for a moment in time

Midwinter.  
These Solstice days - when time is frozen.

The Sun stoops - low in the cold noon sky


Before turning his face quickly Southwards.

Leaving us to contemplate the gloaming.
As compensation for his fleeting visit.

All creation is waiting -






watching for signs.




The Moon - suspended.
Fullsome and ready to give birth.

 A pregnant pause

In the stillness - we can listen for our own voice.
In the darkness -  we can search for our own light.
In that space- between the breath - we can begin to renew ourselves.


And then - slowly - painfully

The wheel creaks - shudders -
And begins to turn once again.
