Winter's Kiss

by Gwydion Ap Alder

Age Group: Adult



The feel of cold wind upon my cheek brings a sense of excited expectation to my heart and the delicious promise of Winter’s blessed advent, for I do love Winter’s Kiss.

Some people dislike Winter, desiring the Summer Sun’s warmth and its longer days instead , but me, I love the short, cold days and the blessings they portend.

Something in the rhythm of winter calls to my Soul, some distant ancestral memory bound up within Nature’s Song, seeking to reconnect me to Her Dance.

Walking in the cold winds, seeing with great delight the snow crowning the distant mountains brings me a sweet sense of rightness and a desire to take my TIME.

I yearn to sit beside a roaring fire surrounded by Winter’s dark mantle of long night, and to then, with relish, feast upon Time to share and Connect with those in my life.

Mankind has sacrificed much to the questionable “convenience” of his Technology, more and faster has become his mantra and time is no longer readily available for him to reflect or heal inside.

Winter is not a time of lifelessness and barren landscapes as so many view it, Winter instead is a LIVING time of pregnant promise, a blessed resting time for Nature to restore Herself.

Without Winter’s pause within the Seasons cycling for rest and renewal, Nature would lack the capacity for abundance, it would fail to thrive and grow and to become what it was meant to Be.

Such is it with man as well, for we are Part of Nature’s Dance.. without time to reflect, without time to lie fallow to renew fertility to our inner Spirit-soil, a thing necessary to our soul’s growth, we languish.

But if we pay attention to Nature’s cycles allowing our Lives to Dance in Rhythm to Her Music, we may Grow and Thrive thereby realizing abundance in ourselves as well as for those we encounter upon our walk.

Man does violence to the Earth as well as to his own Pathway by disconnecting himself from Nature’s Sacred Cycles, We do violence to our very Soul when we ignore the basic necessity of reflection and time to BE.

Man drifts aimlessly spinning in useless circles “Doing” instead of “Being” lacking Connection to Nature’s Blessed Rhythm, with so many hungering for “something” to be a part of, not realizing they already ARE.

Stop for a moment ..or two …, feel your heart beating within your chest, listen to the sounds and sensations as air enters and departs your lungs, feel your LIFE with Awareness.. sense this Moment.

Now reach out with your Heart and all the Senses of your Spirit to connect with Nature and the Universe’s Great Song, reach into the stillness, and listen for the music that’s always present within and without.

Winters Gift is time to reflect, then to walk with awareness across Sacred land , feeling under our feet, and deep within our Soul the delicate beat of Life preparing itself for Spring as it rests fallow beneath the ground.

May Harmony Find You and May Winter’s Gift Grant You Time to Be, Time to Reflect, and Time To Renew Your Spirit!

Blessed Be… ) O (
