Solstice Dreams

I hope I’m not the only one in the Northern Hemisphere going crazy with the short days.  I just can’t seem to get motivated to do anything.  My uninspired, hibernating offering will be shared with Real Toads for their open link.

Darkest nights mean
deepest dreams
held tightly, close
to heart’s warmth;
solstice celebration
signals return of light.
Dreams are hatched,
given wings to fly,
strengthening with
sun’s returning warmth.
