Winter Solstice Moon

Winter solstice is upon us, the astronomical first day of winter in the Northern Hemisphere. The word solstice comes from Latin sol “sun” and sistere “to stand still.”

Oh, standing still. 

Ok, Sweet Winter Moon, here goes:

I let go of unnecessary flurry

I let go of a hasty mind

I let go of busy-ness.

I cultivate stillness

I cultivate quietude

I cultivate tranquility.

Your turn.
