Winter Solstice

Winter Solstice; Let The Celebration Begin

A specific point in time;

The shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere,

The longest day of the year in the Southern Hemisphere,

Because equinoxes and solstices are opposite on opposite sides of the planet, so there is no crime.

It happens around the twentieth first of December,

Not September or November, so remember.

The second solstice of the year,

The date varies; alternative gears?

The sun stands still,

But is it at WILL?

Also called as “the day the sun turns around,”

The day it wears his crown.

The earth isn’t far from the sun,

But it is the first day of astronomical winter,

The one and only: the ONE.

For the North and South

An invisible splinter.

Earliest sunset not on the solstice,

But daylight hours increase faster in the North.

Are you ready to celebrate the winter solstice?

Come on!!! There are only two solstices in the year on earth,

Let us celebrate, together,

a new birth.
