Winter Solstice

She woke before dawn

the streets of the village were covered with snow

a dusting of white on the bare trees

 white frost settling on the grassy fields

coloured lights of the Christmas tree

the only brightness in the early morning

peace drifted down

and joy

and love

and hope for the day

shopping and a movie this afternoon

an early dinner and the Christmas parade come evening....

but for now there was the quiet of a morning


  1. Oh my! That should be a postcard or a wall hanging!
    Thanks for linking up at, and have a wonderful Christmas!

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
