We (Will Seem to) Pause for a Little Spell—Wednesday, December 23, 2020

Today we are in the shift…from the longest night of the year, where darkness drags on and on

Where shadows grow long early in the day

and swirl heavily into the evening

But gradually, ever so slowly, the daylight hours will stretch

(Coyote visiting our yard 😦 )

And the night time minutes grow shorter and shorter

Sunlight will stretch a few seconds longer and longer each and every day

Until the seconds become minutes

Then the minutes will become an hour

At which time we reach Daylight Saving time, where we have a full hour added to our daily Sunlight

But even though the days grow longer,

For two full months, January and February

The days will grow colder and colder

Hopefully with moisture

Called snow.
