Winter Solstice

Winter solstice

Winter Solstice

At the end of a sullen day,
frozen into grey monotones,
the clouds open
to reveal an unexpected gift:

lemon zest and spring butter yellow,
gleaming gold, ochre sand dunes,
egg yolk orange and pumpkin spice.

Sun rays kiss
my cherry tree good night,
snuggling the snowy hill under a
somber purple cloak

a passionate lullaby of colors
swaying to a few breathless beats

flooding me
with certain knowing
that light will
return tomorrow
to banish the
darkness.
