Joyous Solstice

December Wine

Decant December wine
best saved for end
of the year
held in joy of anticipation
Traveling the hills on sleigh rides
of old
Reliving the thrills over
fine age and spirit
a day we hold dear
it is worth far more than gold
I see a star pale and strong
hear a wind
made of song
holy choirs singing
There is nothing wrong with desire
Wonders of will, of intensity
wild like the sweet breath
of winter
the joy of being alive

Faery Dance on Mistletoe

Spinning through heavenly ether,
secured on Mother Earth
chiaroscuro, traversing our
holy star of warmth and light.
Meanwhile, Ma and Pa
nestled under sugarplum faery flight
taking respite from endless cares
may take a chance,
become re-aware
for a shining moment.
Swirling stars of heaven
beating Earthly cadence
call for dancing
fueled by faery dust
bright starhaze shine
guiding us
into the romance

Sweet white flakes in flight
Cold, clear-air insight
Beautiful season
Deeply felt reason
to celebrate
of delight
of candy-cane smiles,
St. Nicholas drums
songs of remembrance
and what we hope comes
as dreams coalesce
seeming to bless
like tinselly stars in the night

Sparkly lights
on greenery, crossing above
bright city streets
Bakery spicey
savory and sweet
That holiday feeling
like snow ready to fall
filling us all with
thrilled anticipation
a magical time
to mend all separation
Peace and good will my friends
Smiling through still, my friends
Sparkly and bright
Let it enthrall
