Headline Poem 12/21/14 -- A Song for the Winter Solstice




A Song for the Winter Solstice

You are the wild horse 
I ride carefree on Sundays

You are a canvas for the words
I decorate with green moss 
and blue savage moons

You are my secret sun 
hiding behind 
the shortest days 
and longest nights

You are not afraid 
to scatter your seeds
on the breast of a robin
to make memories 

You are my sanctuary 
of hungry wheat and 
longing warm 
underbellies of home
