winter solstice comes
bare trees, long hibernation
~ don’t risk bleeding lips
gardens lie fallow
field mice attempting entry
~ long dark frigid nights

Winter solstice—Tuesday, December 21, 2021
The December solstice marks the start of winter, when the South Pole is tilted closest to the Sun, and the Sun’s rays are directly overhead at the Tropic of Capricorn. (The seasons are reversed in the Southern Hemisphere.) The winter solstice is the shortest day of the year.
