To Hold Us In The Great Hands of Light…

To Hold Us In The Great Hands of Light...

Hello, sun in my face.

Hello, you who made the morning

and spread it over the fields

and into the faces of the tulips

and the nodding morning glories….

…to keep us from ever-darkness,

to ease us with warm touching,

to hold us in the great hands of light…

good morning, good morning, good morning.

Watch, now, how I start the day

in happiness, in kindness.”

~ Mary Oliver

On the shortest day of the year, I smile, knowing the journey of the return of the light begins…now. Happy Solstice, all~
