It's the shortest day of the year! Light will now return and it's truly an event worth celebrating. Merry Yule y'all!  beercheer.gif

Sunrise today at 10:14. Sunset today at 14:42. Length of day is 4 h 28 min.

In ten days we'll have 12 minutes longer days already and it will only accelerate from there

Clear skies here too, +1C and a thousand stars in the sky plus another billion glittering in the frost.

beercheer.gif Thank goodness for the weekend, but it's also Christmas weekend and I've been frantically cleaning house and wrapping gifts. I'm going to have a couple of vodka shots and go back to bed. stoned.gif

I can already claim today as the most beautiful day of this winter without seeing the rest of it. It was so gorgeous. It was snowing these huge flakes of snow this morning. I only checked the weather forecast online at 6 am and didn't actually look outside blonde.gif

It was amazing and magical and I regret not taking pics because tomorrow weather troll is pissing on this here winter beauty parade.

Actually we had amazingly beautiful weather before that too, but I don't have time taking pics during those fleeting moments. The sun is barely over the horizon so when it is we're enjoying it while it's out. A couple of days ago I watched the low sun shine through the billion of raindrops frozen to each tip of each finger of each twig of each branch of each birch. It's like diamonds. No actually it's rarer than diamonds.

~~~ Solstice Song ~~~

Glisten , cold cold ground
snow blanketed
Listen ,,
Tell of the Tale ,,
of when as children
we were first Bound ,,
into mystic and set free to be

Garden for our personal Play
Light bringing unto us
our primal love in a way
setting us on a Path ,,
To discover our eternity ,,,,

There ,, Sun low now
colors spreading across
the Brightness of the Snow
feel ,, love within begin to grow
as we become complete

Scent of crackle upon the air ,,
Frosted breath ,,
Ah the Fall of curls in your Hair
breathless overcomes me ,,
watching you dancing
as a Child ,, who ,, first set Free
experiences a new and beautiful
reality ,,,

Up to Sky
we turn our smiles
to wonder at the all of Why ,,,
mesmerized in a Dream come
beautifully True ,,,
Love comes over us ,,
falling into me ,
I falling into you ,,,
embrace ,,, love with all our might
Shortest of Days , fall into
the longest of Nights

Turn ,, see reflections of our love ,,
wading as ripples across this Garden Pond

Sigh ,, into my Heart ,,
To love you deeper than words can say
I commit to you this heart of mine
Give all of me in every way ,,
to you ,,, I hand my being in free will ,,,
Take me child ,,, this desire of my heart ,,,
Fulfill ,,,

~~~ In Life , directions unknown , Our Hearts Guide us freely , we find in time ,,,how much we've grown ~~!~~~
