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

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.
Yes, bravo, Richard, beautiful.
With peace your words fill our hearts. Welcome this respite in our journey.
