POEM: WINTER SOLSTICE

Thursday, December 21st, 2023

Valley Road, Toronto



At the time of a major shift of the annual winter solstice influencing us all, I and three companions, Chirag, Navi, and Arpan, took to the trail on the Rosedale Valley Road. It was a beautiful night. Here is my poem on the winter solstice.


WINTER SOLSTICE

 

 

It is winter solstice this very day

Nights now shorten, nature does portray

While days lengthen to just beyond May

And reach June as weeks pass away

It is an annual turning point

A seasonal juncture, a seasonal joint

A slot in time set not to disappoint

Rather an insertion to bless, to anoint

It's merely a half-year's completion

Yet some curse this very harsh season

Could it be nature's way of treason?

Why the harsh cold?  Is there a reason?

As the north pole tilts away from the sun

We can learn to accept duality as one

Cold, hot, glad, sad, all extremes on the run

They can trigger tolerance, even make it fun





MAY THE SOURCE BE WITH YOU!
