solstice – let there be light

it’s the winter solstice on saturday… we talked about doing a space for it. i’m so glad we decided not to, and i really wish we had…

let there be light

it is
as it was
in the beginning

my world is covered
with rocks
and dirt
with wind
and water

i am barren
breathless
lifeless
lightless

all is dark.

they say you commanded
let there be light

but i think you whispered it
into the night
a plea
a prayer

a fragile hope
and longing

let there be light.

whisper again.

let it be once more
as it was
in the beginning

let light come first
then let there be life
let the rumours of goodness
surround me again.

i am barren
breathless
lifeless
lightless.

let it be
as it will be

let there be light.
