Solstice dreaming








Lie still, lie still while the stiff bone-tiredness spends itself in sleep,
while the snow floats by, the solstice passes and a new space opens,
 slippy sugar frosting
over a muffled, breathy hole in time.
Drop down, drop down and dream towards the coming year.

a muffled, breathy hole in time -- oh, exactly!

You make me miss the snow. Happy Solstice dear Jean!

A new space opens...

I always find that I am not ready for the days to already be getting longer. But I can never hold on. Everything is always moving.

Dropping down together into the dark, preparing to emerge again renewed... Rest well Jean x

I love that blue tree! Like some woodland monarch with a tall crown, his arms held out in welcome.

Have a warm, welcoming New Year, Jean.
