Soul’s Solstice

night sky - winter solstice 2013 
(a shadorma)

Longest night
of the year has come.
Evening star
reminds me
that I am never alone.
You’re my guiding light.

P. Wanken





Written on 12/21/2013 in response to a photo I had taken of the evening star; shared at Poetic Bloomings #134: Season Of Light.  Also shared at “100 Days of Fall/Winter 2013.”



  1. When you folks rave of solstice
    You speak of shortest day
    But down here in the Outback
    We all think you’re astray.
    Try telling that to kangaroo
    Or gold mining tycoon
    They’d say “the shortest day my ass,
    That happens every June!”
