Happy Winter Solstice

"The winter solstice has always been special to me as a barren darkness
that gives birth to a verdant future beyond imagination,
a time of pain and withdrawal that produces something joyfully inconceivable,
like a monarch butterfly masterfully extracting itself from the confines of its cocoon,
bursting forth into unexpected glory."
~ Gary Zukav

Winter Solstice ~ Alcohol Ink on Yupo
 
"Of winter's lifeless world each tree

Now seems a perfect part;

Yet each one holds summer's secret

Deep down within its heart."
~ Charles G. Stater
