Midwinter Waltz

December 18, 2013

One of my favorite times of year,
The annual dance of the planets
Treats us to a peculiar courtship
Of our Earth and the shining Sun:
The winter solstice is upon us.

Precarious constellations exhale
Sighs of relief as they are blessed
With a moment of reprieve, and
Let the master of our skies take
Center stage for a dramatic pause.

An exact alignment of purpose,
Our glowing orb hesitates ever so
Slightly before returning across
The vast expanse of blue and grey,
Waiting for a chance to swallow
Us whole and finish the dance
It began so very long ago.
