The Sound of Snow

She asked me how to describe the sound
of snow falling softly in the mountains.
 
I stood among the flurries until the tears came,
until I couldn’t stop them. Not even
if I’d wanted to,
 
and I didn’t.
 
And, after a good long while, I replied:
“You must let your heart break for want of love. 
You must listen carefully when it does. 
Whatever it is you hear then,
that is it;
 
That is the sound of snow falling,
softly, 
in the mountains.”

New Moon in Scorpio,

Transformative Ruler of Deep water and Deeper emotions.

As we head into the dark of winter, take time alone with yourself.

Take time to go Deep within.

Embrace your strengths AND your flaws.

Embrace it all, light and dark, pain and joy, confidence and fear.

Accept and Embrace it All.

Holy Night

Nightfall

Sun 

falls over the edge of

a silent Earth

reverent day’s end

holy night slides in

and dark expands into

a landscape of dreams

I am full of this night

potent with possibility

in this dark space

waiting for moonrise

 and remembering

the light.

☾☽
