The days have been
and deepening in their intensity
At last, this day, the longest night of the year,
the promise of growing light,
the promise of hope renewed,
the promise of new beginnings,
Tuck into the layers of your heart and
find comfort there.
Tuck into the layers of your being and
find yourself there.
Tuck into the layers of your darkness and
find light there.
The days will now
and create space for your sacred becoming
Stretch out in all directions
Shine your light, your precious love
Share your essence with the world
Without darkness, there can be no light.
