Morning Shines Late Now
Morning shines late now in the garden,
As the sun rises further south
Not able to reach the height it once did months ago.
We are tracking time with darkness
Traveling closer to winter-to the sacred Solstice
From whence the light will again shine brighter.
A few minutes each day until the earth thaws,
And it is the growing time again.

Each season, I track the sun light rising from spring to summer to fall….and then to the dark of the Winter Solstice. And as winter begins, I know the light will be returning bit by bit, day by day as we get closer to spring and the garden season again.
December 1st started my Seasonal Celebrations meme for the change of seasons. Check out my post at Gardens Eye View, and join in the celebration of the change of seasons, no matter where you are on earth. You can also read an excerpt of my Winter story in the latest issue of RURAL magazine.
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog. Visit them to read some more wonderful verse.
I am also linking in with the I Heart Macro meme hosted by Laura@Shine The Divine that happens every Saturday, with Judith@Lavender Cottage who is hosting Mosaic Monday and with Kara@A Spirit of Simplicity for her Tuesday Afternoon meme.
If you enjoy reading this blog, I welcome you to share it with others. I enjoy spreading the blog love, and I appreciate all who come and read my blogs.
Special Note: The pictures here are of a recent December sunrise in the garden. It started with a orange light against the almost black clouds. The last picture is of the sunrise in the meadow.
I leave you with a few additional words about the change in the morning light. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
