Season of Light - 5 Solstice Songs for 2007

by libramoon

Age Group: Adult



gods rest ye

If only that were what it's all about
Communal fire, warm and glowing
Cooking up a feast enough to
fill our bellies and our larders
for wintry weeks to come;
Exchanging the gifts our separate
crafts empower
with wishes of good will;
good cheer, inebriating spirits
raised and quaffed against
chill or fear of night;
If only peace and sensitive portrayal
of the gift of human frailty
were the point and purpose of
a season,
voices pitched to harmonize
for beauty's sake;
If only we could reach into
legendary epiphany,
reach out in simple empathy,
if only we could simply be
merry.



Winter Song O' Mother Sun

Winter homage to our waning Sun
that she will return, feeding us
with light and heat, sweet
energy.
Mother Star, we enchant
thee with ceremony, singing/dancing
in glorious pageantry at your feet,
a synergy of faith and formal prayer.
We are your children, refining
your gift of life, designing
grand structures, grander dreams,
imaging rainbows from your
streaming light;
see how our visions learn to take
flight
under your warm embrace
and on through the night.
These long dark nights, we beseech you,
reach out to join our hands,
sharing warmth of your reflected love,
Mother Sun.






Trees to Dream on

Pine mountain scent
majestic snow-globe memories
ancient beings twixt sky and earth
basking in the waning sunlight,
twinkling night encroaching,
fluttering leaves cast
in white lace and starry splendor.
Long have we lived
cycling through death's rebirth,
seasons of land and sea linked
in living countenance open to
winds of fate and change.
Days have been when brutal cold
demanding sacrifice saw hunt and harvest.
Nights given to ceremony, eloping
frenzied dance, spontaneous gaiety
-- a tribal stew of sustenance
warming spirit and body
through the dark times.
Built on timber, built on years
of sun, storm, forces claimed
and reconfigured to bring us here,
reconnecting, anchoring to tales
told in firelight.
Warm wood, bright tinder,
holding ancient light, charms, secrets,
holding warmth to warmth,
life to life
year to year.





Beneath the Winter Sky

Beneath a veil of painful confusion
Beyond a settling into daily grind
Amidst the stars, in blinding profusion
Hidden in interstices of time
See the glory
Feel the energy
Inhale sweet fumes of delight
A living story
retold through synergy
rekindles our vision through the night
if we but look through a vaster range of sight
Voices in unison are singing
Invocations beautiful and wise
In the distance holy bells are ringing
If we can discern through the disguise
the message this time of year keeps bringing
a life-giving promise from the skies

__._, _.___


Bright lights entice our weary eyes
Spritely carols fill the air
Stories abound of precious losses found, to inspire
Treats so sweet ignite a childlike fire
A season for sensual pleasure
while diving for spiritual treasure
can be such a joy beyond measure
This special time
Make it yours; and shine
like a guiding star
enlightening the darkest skies.
