Earth anchored trees
Birth beacons
Quiet amid the rattle of spent oak leaves,
fluttering weathered seven-pointed flags
weaving with the feather-topped goldenrod.
Tip-toeing deer 
Fringe of night clear eyes alert.
All is dusted with angel-white snow.

Season of comfort and joy.
We are quiet too
fed warm by pot-bellied Ash logs
softly crackling.
Silent night speaks of contentment,
of presence with the trees.
Fir tree our Christmas symbol
Everlasting life
in this promised moment. 

Reach in
and find earth anchored contentment
warmed by the waxing crescent moon,
moon of positivity and faith.
Between the veil of snow-dimmed sky
and ancestral glow
is the sacred silence
where we confront our shadow,
forgive our shadow
and flutter among the seven-pointed stars
where lies love and kindness.
