"Silent For A Time"

Happy Solstice

To those seeking stillness
in the chaos currently draped over
this vast system of dreamers and doers,
I encourage you to look up.
Take time to sit and marvel 
the brilliant constellations of
overgrown spirits inhabiting our skies.
These giant custodians of dark passage
who plea for silence
as they furnish the world
with lighted pause.
A blanket of hope falling to shield us all
of painful words and uneasy opinions.
A voice calling out in the snow;
A quiet reminder
of some distant future
slowly threading its way through this long night
with a rare, unheralded beauty.
