My favorite poem is "Winter Solstice" by Karen Clark I like the winter solstice, time to slow down, reflect, plan for longer days.
From Karen Clark:
"In my mid-twenties, a series of synchronistic events conspired to wake me up in the midst of a corporate, achievement-driven life in progress that neither fed my soul nor gave my joy. I embarked on a spiritual journey of healing and transformation. Although I didn’t know it at the time, I had committed myself to the teachings and ways of the Goddess that underlie and inform the Path of She. In the course of my journey, I have reclaimed the sacred feminine, magic and my own inner beauty and powers as the wellspring of my everyday existence. Through the many threads of my life — graduate studies, a successful consulting practice, intense healing and spiritual explorations, partnership and motherhood, and my Path of She teachings — I have doggedly pursued one intention: to return the sacred feminine and the Goddess back to their rightful place in my waking life, and the waking world."
