Winter's Solstice

Winter's solstice
descends upon the land
with a deepening
blanket of darkness

marching toward that
point verge
when the earth
and leans again
into the light.

Softening the despair
of the expanding night,
shining stars
appear on trees
outside in gardens,
inside of homes,

as light
breaks the darkness,
as the sun
invites hope into the day,
and the Son
is born into the heart.
