Once Upon a Winter




For all of those on the north side of the mid line

of the slightly-bulged-like-an-unkempt-belly line

this is the short straw

the late morning and the early night

and for some the middle of the all night

and the missing of the light


This is the dreaded in the coming

and the hopeful in the passing

the lighting of the annual candles

and the long night's slumber

this is the celebration of the end

but only because it is the beginning.

Y'all have a merry nice Winter Solstice

and a Good Light to all!

from the black desert

Starts with a conspiratorial grin, then lights the way with a procession of mysterious candles.


Like it.

Didn't read this before gatekeeper. Saw Tony was back, glad he revived. Atmospherically delivered palpable of scene and time. Frank

Gatekeeper, I like how this poem has started, and it's way to the end, but at the end itself, is somehow without sound, IMO. I don't know as I miss there something else. Otherwise than that, the poem is full of great elements. Thank you for sharing it.
