Winter Rest And Feast

Let winter be winter, be ice and fallow.
Let yourself be settled, wrapped in warmth. 
It need not take all of the months; it may only want a moment of your focus, that part of you that needs to seclude.
Then, bring your plate to the feast. Be satiated. Feel it radiate. 
Listen to your heart, listen to all of the hearts that beat and want nothing unreasonable, only to be heard. 
Use the long nights to dream. This is not a luxury. 
Light a candle, let yourself see from the flame to the shadow. 
Ask yourself ‘Where is my hope?’ 

And there your feasted, rested soul begins the work.

Winter sun shines through dramatic clouds, effect is uplifting
