Winter Solstice 2014


may the magic of the shortest day
cloak of the longest night
touch your heart
inspire your depths 
and may your spirit glow
with candles snow and stars
until each day grows longer by the light of our sun


lovely solstice
summer or winter 
to one and all
~

this week we had ice crystals
i simply adore them

  10. Look, how soft the candles breathe and flow in the quiet winter-night. Look, how warm the little soul is feeling in the coat of the peaceful sleeping bear!

  11. WOW, WOW, WOW. Your art ,my goodness, what a dream. I will be honest. I'd love to play with a BEAR! To skip along nature, with no worries of attack, with no barriers between us, but pure harmony. Then there's the ice crystals....fabulous moment of seizing the wonders we often miss.

    Tammie Lee, thank you for visiting. Peace to you! Anita
