The Light We Shine

Winter Solstice arrives,
we breathe a sigh,
          light returns,
measured in seconds 
until, once again, we
feel the joy 
         of illumination.

This season sings
of radiance, 
          candles are lit, 
twinkle lights abound,
menorah, manger, 
sun, all symbols for 
	  our fascination.

Opening the door
of our hearts,
          we find the light,
hidden within
all along, now bidden,
we are never without,
          our true celebration.

May we breathe peace into chaos, may we enjoy harmony in our encounters. Wishing us all joy in our days and serenity in our nights. May every day be seen as holy as we radiate light into this world.

Blessings and love,

Janis
