Guest Post: Almost 2017

This poem was written by Alex Conall of Sunbow Publications and is printed here with express permission. 

Sun sinks below horizon,
and slowly darkness falls.

Stay awake throughout the night.
Better to light a candle
than curse the darkness,
though one can certainly do both.

Stay awake throughout the night.
Watch your candle.
It might flare or fall.

Stay awake throughout the night.
The sun will rise again.

The time of fear is now,
but the time of hope is here.
Light a candle.
Stay awake throughout the night.
Bring hope.
Bring joy.
Bring sword and bow and axe,
for peace comes not without them,
liberation not without war.
Light a candle.

A Happy Solstice to you.
