A Short Winter Day
Tis the winter solstice in the southern hemisphere. A short day when the sun stands still then begins to return making days longer and warmer.
I laugh at myself as a short person writing about a short day. As one close to the ground, who is shortsighted I seek the little things. The solstice reminds we have limited time and light to work with.
With the cool morning it takes willpower to I break free from the doonas clench to walk into a new day.
The reward Vitamin D, endorphins, fresh air, a dog walk on a short day.
Even with the solstice I shorten my day with agendas to be acted on pronto before the sun sets. I loose the moments of being present to the beauty before me, spontaneous time with friends and enjoying the life I am creating. A short self pep talk.
A short day to remind me of the fickleness of finite time.
What do I waste my time and energy on?
What and whom do I want to spend my time with?
What am I short of ?
What is my abundance?
As the sun disappears into the ocean I sigh as a day ends, grateful for this day of winter solstice.
A short sweet ending
Despite what the world news is today there is no shortness of love, hope and dreams amongst people.
