I’m offering a Christmas poem instead of a Solstice poem, but it does involve light! Thanks to Heidi for hosting today and being so creative in rounding up early. Read all the light-filled poems at My Juicy Little Universe.
Wise ones traveled across foreign terrain,
trusting the light of a new charted star.
Hope moved them forward and fed their vision,
to worship the child king their reward.
Angelic voices startled shepherds.
They struggled against fear to understand
strange tidings in a world of conflict –
Peace on earth? Good will toward man?
Love came alive in a Bethlehem stable.
The creator bowed low, a doorway to form
for the royal king expected for centuries.
Yet, nestled in hay, Christ is born.
