Solstice Night

Shooting star

Tides of hope
will wash ashore
and season’s light descends
Days become the night again
and love stands still in time

We wait until
tomorrow brings
A shadow long before
The movement evermore unfolds
The Word passed into light

Of life before
the beauty knelt
Revealed the manger’s gift
Hope returning to the land
The strangers’ journey came

To be the Star
the way revealed
what evermore would know
the Solstice bending at the knee
Unveils the rising Dove


Standing Still


Three days hence
the sun returns
To warm our worlds
with love

The message always
still the same
Peace rises with
the dove

Upon whose wings
our hearts will be
Forever moved
by light

Tho’ words remain
unspoken here
Surrendered to
the night

Stars passed before
and always will
Remind us of
love is born

Within our hearts
and in our lives
Again on
Christmas morn …
