Haiku December 21, 2012 Winter Solstice

First day of winter

Wind whips, whistles at window

Temperatures plunge!!

Art Prescription: A low in the 20’s! Well it is the first day of winter! Winter Solstice, also known as Yule, Midwinter, and the Longest Night is indeed the longest night. From here forward the nights shorten and the days lengthen setting off nature’s internal clocks for spring. It’s the most Yin day of the year! Both the astronomical and cultural history of this date are interesting, and  Mayans willing and the creek don’t rise, I’ll be back tomorrow!
