solstice night

It’s you again, moon of fullness, reminder of the strength of light. Oh how I’ve craved you these past few nights, these months and years of seeming darkness. I’d forgotten how to receive you, how to reflect you, how to hold you in my soul. Tonight, finally, your illumination is no longer lost on me. It brings courage to my darkened heart, dissolves the burrows inside me that I no longer need, and radiates insight into the jumbled maze of my mind. Staring up at you now, drawing in deep breaths of frosty air, I see what you see, know what you know and, like you, have a sky full of dreams.
