Winter Solstice Poem

Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem celebrates Winter Solstice 2012 in the northern hemisphere, and the Summer Solstice in the southern hemisphere. Lighter days and summer and are now heading northwards, while darker days and winter are  on their way south; to meet half way at the spring/autumn equinox in March. Hope you have a great Solstice, Christmas and whatever you celebrate; and holiday season.
The poem mirrors line for line (outer and outer etc) in the two halves more than the lines rhyming. Here it is:

Mid-Winter Rainbow’s Pot of Gold
dye me grey
December day
winter waves
winds chill down
feather home
heating insulation
pigeons roost
solstice boost
ascended shortest day, midwinter peak fall
skiing ravine
eagles flight
sunshine returns
fleeting promise
wardrobe coat den
spring beckons
January joy
grate my desire
Happy Holidays
