“This is winter solstice, the longest night of the year. Darkness reigns triumphant, yet gives away and changes into light. All is cold, and I await the coming of dawn. As the sun rises, the triple goddess once more gives birth to the divine child. In silence and wonder I stand before the sacred cauldron of rebirth, knowing that one day I too must pass through the cauldron and be reborn. For this I now give honor to the triple goddess.”
Found this little piece for the solstice online. Having grown up Christian and then converted to Paganism finding the parallels are so interesting. While in Burning Alexandria, I don’t much allude to the majority religion Christianity, it is interesting to note in my own life.
Burning Alexandria is a work in progress, soon to be published independently by the author. It is a historical Supernatural young adult work of fiction. Follow me here to hear all the latest!
Happy Yuletide! (and Merry Christmas!)
