The lavender sky spreads and stretches over rolling pastures and forests of trees.
Along the railroad tracks the mist lightly rolls as dawn awakes
Golden sun rises and the air is ever cool in the December morning breeze
Deer move along the tracks with motions swift on crisp winter grass.
Here at cozy home the dawn wakes me without clock as the lavender clouds drift by
Outside my window a new day begins of promise and light
No window coverings block my view of the large trees and the colored western sky
I mutter silent prayers of gratitude and breathe deeply.
‘Tis too easy to get caught up in past affairs and travesties, harsh pain and mire
‘Tis too easy to become obsessed with what one still desires
But in this moment, my Dear ones out there, be the heart and smile that you would admire
Let not any negative word or thought escape to the world.
Focus, Dears, on what is real and light and bright and sweet, upon blessings, and present here
See beauty in all things big and small, from children to birdsong,
Speak in tomes of love and forgiveness and inspire those that are near, for joy they hear
For your spirit’s light this Yule tide season can be very bright.
