Advent Sun

.

Even as I turn away
You still shine bright and constant

Gleaming through the short, dark days
Pearlescent behind winter’s shroud

Framed by winding branches
and softening the agony of winter limbs stripped bare

As I enter the deepest depths of winter
You watch and you wait

I promise to return
