Path of Winter

Don Hynes

Smaller Font Larger Font RSS 2.0


The sun begins its journey north

and days slowly lengthen

yet hope is scarce,

a sense of dread

weighs upon the people.

Words can help but not to heal,

something older must be found.

Beneath the earth strength gathers

winter dark in stone lined caves,

not the time of rising but of rest.

Ice can break the oldest trees

but within their roots

the force of spring awaits.

Go down with the rivers,

the deep peace of evergreen.

Restore from the root

and let the well of darkness fill.

What must come will find its way

as we follow the path of winter.
