A prayer on Solstice
As I walk surrounded by the chill air of December, may I feel cleansed and renewed.
May I be blessed as I walk in the clear clean light of Solstice morning
May I feel ready for new challenges as the year changes to the light from the dark.
I ask that nine signs of winter solstice protect and guide my way
Chill of wind awaken me
Morning light excite me
Honk of Canadian geese overhead inspire me
Warmth of friends bless me
Sharing of food nourish me
Love of family bless me and all who I hold dear
Sounds of singing sooth me
Long cozy nights refresh me
Candle flames enthrall me
May I be inspired to create for the enjoyment of those I love
Every day and every night
From nightfall through the breaking of dawn and all the day.
