solstice 2012



my heart is dark
as a winter afternoon
waiting
waiting
for the change
in the light
to show
shadows short
and 
the rips and tears to heal



because...

  2. Of course, tht's why they invented Christmas, to keep people from getting too depressed this time of year. As usual, a very good poem.

    Never heard of Daniel Johnston. Liked that second song.
