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

That is so beautiful.
I really think this is a beautiful skywatch Friday post. Happy New Year!
Stunning sky and great words too. Wishing you a happy new year ahead.
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.
Happy new year from a fellow sky watcher and sky lover.
