Day of longest night,
from hence the sun's light
Yet the darkness deepens.
The candle flickers.
The shadows dance.
The sweetness of incense soothes.
Music of singing flute
and wind-blown chimes float near.
A crystal reflects the flickering light.
Walk with me to the depths of my soul,
to the darkest corner.
Bring it to the light that I may see.
Let me not be blinded by fear
but with humility and the light of love,
bring forth my Self to the light.
There, I will be reborn, changed again,
ready for a new season
after the long dark night.
