Happy Solstice

As the sun returns
This midwinter day
Let us remember
That each moment

In the coming year
We can choose Passion over duty
Compassion over pity
And let Love exist

In the spaces between us
The light that shines through the gaps
Outshining both you and me
Our connection

And shinier
Than our efforts alone

And bathing us
In its reflected light
Warming our hearts
And enlivening all we do
