Winter Solstice

Autumn leaves
Chant ancient words and
Secret tunes transposed
by midnight wisdom.

Skeleton trees
Cackle and dance, snake
Pointy twisted fingers
Into a sky that is
Sprinkled with stars.

Smoke and moonlight spill
Scattered trickster fortunes
In shiny crystal globes
Tossed carelessly
On frosted earth.

Hearth and home
 Are hung with shadow,
Shaped and spun
By candles lit
Like little prayers

To welcome back the sun.

 Happy Winter Dreamtime!
