Jan 2022

Hold a question for this new year…

This year I observed
The winter solstice
With an online webinar…
A gathering of people
Who question our place
In our universe,
In our world,
In our city
In our very breath.

Everyone’s tired
Of our continued
Of body and soul.
Brought to us by
An impersonal fate
That demands
With a never-ending

But exhaustion
Is not a badge of courage,
My dear friends.
We can still question.

Seems the act of
Finding our own question
Can tickle the fibres
Of our personal
And that quest
Can set us soaring…
And the awe and wonder
We discover
Can even promote
Wellbeing for that same
Body and soul.

I invite you to search
Your heart for your own
Your own quests…
And show us all
A new year filled with
Your own
Awe and wonder.

If this isn't nice, what is?
