The Darkness of Delight



where have you gone?
On this winter solstice
I long for the light
within me to shine on.

Where are the children that delight
my heart and makes me young?
Where are my sisters who makes
the ritual circles using chants,
dance, crystals, and song?
Where are the wise elders who
help me see a brighter day?

Void of meaning, the cold wind
seeps into my bones and throbs.
The thought of death catches
on to my breath as the
commercial madness before
Christmas makes my heart sob.

Where is my beloved community
and the women of my coven who
delight in the powers of Gaia?
Alone in the asphalt desert
the stars no longer shine.
Light comes out of darkness.
As the Earth turns towards the sun,
may I be born again in love.
