Oh Holy Night

gazing out
from the nest 
of darkness…

such a holy hum
on this night

when light and dark
become lovers…

I feel the kiss
before their mouths touch;

electric anticipation;

the magnitude
of their communion;

birthing a brand new world
with every turn of the wheel…

the rustling skirts of my gown
glowing with starlight,
the tender moon
tucked inside my pocket;

whirling across 
the dance floor,

into the arms 
of the 
radiant
sun… 

oh, how I love
to turn toward the light;
(and back to the dark again)

like a selkie 
reclaiming her skin,
slipping into 
moonlit waters…

drinking in this 
liquid marriage
of heaven
and earth;

when everything 
feels held 
so close, 

on this
blessed 
solstice
night
