Full Cold Moon Solstice

the pendulum swings to the end of its travel

the shortening of days slows and stops

the full cold moon lights the world

the wind briefly holds its breath

the tides come full and stop

a moment of absolute calm

to breathe, to be present

before beginning again

the high holy night

  1. I appreciate this piece, Richard.

    I normally look forward to passing this turning point in the year, eager for the sun to blaze its way back into our lives over the coming months.

    This year, though, I’d quite like to stop the clock for a while. Draw out the moment of absolute calm a little longer.
