On the threshold (a poem for the Winter solstice )




We remember, old friends
the warmth of breath,
on the threshold now
of new beginnings,
ecscaping the darkness
bridging the void,
lighting  fires to rekindle
the glow from within,
releasing again,the eternal surge and flow,
of humanity's embrace,
hands stretched out
travelling light,
mapping the invisible
on this shortest day,
toasting new beginnings
setting course on paths of freedom,
as moon's shadow casts its seed
and the night dances
with the cathedral of earth
and the white bones of winter,
yuletide brings gentleness to restore 
to allow all things to become possible.
