The Enchantment of Midwinter

Hot tea, midwinter and poetry.

Ensconced as I am in the silver light of a near Solstice afternoon, this seems a good way of passing the time.

Outside the jewels of winter hang on the pine trees and the air is cold.

I hear the cars move slowly, cautiously along the frozen road.
A near Solstice Sunday.

Tables high and low in the cottage are decorated with green and candles, a celebration of this dark, still time.

The descent towards the Solstice continues unabated.

For a few days time will be still as the world turns  and the sun completes it’s downward drift…

Willow lies cut and ready to be stacked into neat bundles for basket-making in the early Spring.

The tasks of winter continue to resonate around the cottage, calling me to do their bidding…

Low lies the sun in the winter sky.
