In 48 hours the year will turn and minute by minute day light will start stretching out again to claim a little bit more of each day.
Tonight the moon rises later and fuller
through a clear sky, following a day of only partial cloud
Today the greenhouse is cleared of expended strength
ready to be cleansed and polished ready to let the light of the new year bring energy to those within.
Life is ready to spring
but also ready to hold its breath if the wolf of frost calls the time.
The seasoned ones keep an eye on things
While elsewhere life waxes and wanes
