Winter solstice

Holiday skies sunset

The earth has tilted
Night becomes day
Day becomes night
The unconquered sun, turning of the year
Bonfires of pagan and believer
A celebration of the true light
Welcoming renewal and rebirth
Ashes and embers kept for luck
Candles lit to remember, beacons of hope
The longest night comes to an end

    Oh. I can’t decide what I think is prettier.. Your words or that breath stealing picture. Both?
    Those embers that hard to extinguish..become the warmest lights sometimes.
