Aislinn Wilson

Winter Solstice

Lovers gather round red coals

Hold close

Even the eye of the storm must blink

Hold Firm it's lashes

The days can only get longer from here

    May those longer days fill you with joy and love.

        A fine write Aislinn. Erm OK, I shall spoil your hopefulness - Don't worry, it will start getting darker again in 6 months time. I'm an old spoilsport! heehee.

          I think I view life itself as a season, so I’m not so worried.
