Winter solstice.....

Shortest day longest night
with all that comes about!
All those things I dread and feared
were but gates to the new from my auld
and tired self,
with the light that shines in longer days
the sun with rays of warmth and glow
will bring the joy I thought long lost
but no...lost not they were
but kept secure within the night.
Occult, concealed just for a while
till the night gave way to bright light.

The darkest night must come and go

for us to see the light!

The old I leave behind....

To make space for the new
it's hard I know
I feel
the pain inside
of letting everything
pass by.

Inside my heart
a conflict rise
wanting to hang on
to the pain,
to what I thought I had
yet was so false in part.

There's no other way
I know, but scared
and sad I find myself.

But to let go
is the path, the job at hand
and empty myself
of all,
of everything
that I am.

And by losing all
I may find myself whole.
