Winter Solstice


when you reach year’s darkest point

that moment you may succumb

when you have set up home in blackness

where hibernation has taken heart hostage

just when you accept it

just when you are done

just when faith is lost

while you ponder all your losses

or fumble to make it out

lighting candles no more suffices

and frigidness takes hold of soul


for that zenith

the day of dark’s creeping retreat

the edging of the sun begins

to overtake its icy grip

keep your eyes on horizon

as nothing lasts forever

the universe always grows

and ever earth will turn, so

shift your gaze to heaven

there the fire will ever burn

~ Emily C. from PoetGirlEm
