The lights on the Christmas tree through squinty eyes.
The snow quiets the world around me
and I send out love to those that walk there.
Sip a cup of cocoa and maybe a favorite tea.
Light the candles and sit in quietness for just a little while.
The softness of the winter light,
it dances just before me.
A single candle light or a multitude
They soothe my soul.
I take in the quiet times between
a celebration or two.
Savoring the darkness,
I light my candle
and sip a warm cup of something sweet.
These small things are what carries
me through the darkness of winter.
And I BREATHE,
just the softness of my breathe,
the music in the air of the quiet
Take time, dear friends,
delight in the breath, the light,
and blanket your heart with JOY.
