The Winter Solstice is upon us...

picture source:

It’s fast, tears through my consciousness, alive with life and fire,

faster, a blur of colours, shapes, smells, the molten mass of disjointed realities,

faster still until suddenly, everything halts,
suspended, the fog lifts, the ends materialise,
awareness free from the drivel
collected at the wayside of my mind,

and tranquility sinks in,
the quiet I’ve been seeking,
the peace I’ve been craving,

the relief that was dire
to diffuse the implosion of my self
into the midnight ice of the winter solstice…


  1. A moment of stillness we need to grasp at least once a day.

  2. Better if read aloud. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Never been south of the equator ... never experienced winter solstice where U are ... Summer Solstice here ... the most glorious and longest night of the year ... want to make a fie and dance, but fire ban is on cuz of the Fort McMurray fires ... Love, cat.

  4. Stay away from implosions, especially of self. I the coldness puts down the fuse, then have at it. Personally I have been saved from implosion by living North and the opposite solstice.
