Shortest Day

Like the moon on the face of dark waters
like the spirit hovering over the deep
like a seed needing the dark to grow into the light
like the darkest hour coming just before the dawn
like new life ready within the womb
may God's face shine upon me as I wait in hope for the returning light
in the dusky daylight hours of this solstice day.
(Prayer from The Celtic Wheel of the Year by Tess Ward.)
