Read introduction

After tonight's winter solstice (3 mins past midnight here on December 22) I do hope to have dry days with some light...
I miss light terribly...

Chasing Light

No sunrise or sunset to admire
only colour is gray in abundance
Hunting for light in open fire,
candles shine in dancing choir.

Seeking warmth for content,
Hot chocolate by hot flames,
And in writing poetry meant
burning candles with scent!

Grasping light wherever I find
like a chase in a treasure hunt.
Ambivalent; gray skies remind
sunshines nowadays left behind

Shortest days we illuminate bright
our gardens, pinetrees, houses
to outreach the likeness of light
unendingly means: day and night!
