Silver and Gold
There's nothing new under the sun - or is there?
I mean, there's nothing new about silvery sunlight at winter solstice - nor is poetry a new form of expression. There's nothing new about friendship, collaboration, or our species' tendency towards creativity and the arts. Right?
But when something comes out of nothing - well - that makes me feel that the world truly is created fresh and brand new in every moment.
I am in awe of Steven's poem, inspired in part by my thoughts about sunlight in yesterday's post. It's a beautiful piece, though the truth is, Steven writes beautiful poetry every single day. So, there's nothing new about that. Wow.
I'm proud to be part of this collaboration, so very proud, you can't imagine. All is relationship, isn't it? Nothing new about that, but when I take part in an artful collaboration of any kind whatsoever, it is so exciting. It feels as if nothing like it has ever happened before.
Pauline (a great writer) is also interested in making a poem about sunlight. Can't wait to see how she articulates her thoughts about my beloved Brother Sun. Willow of the great blog Willow Manor, regularly uses a visual clue to inspire herself and others to write poetry. Now I know how you feel, Willow. Very cool!!
I'm looking forward to the solstice, just like I always do. The return of the light is close now, and though winter solstice takes place every year, that miraculous rebirth, too, always feels revolutionary, unprecedented.
All hail the light. Let there be light! Shalom.
