The Snow Goose Moon is the first moon
of the earth’s renewal, December 22nd-January 19th
From Sun Bear Medicine Wheel
- winter woman is traveling,
- traveling north
- under the dome of a snow goose moon.
- the top of her convertible is down.
- the stars reflect off rhinestone crystals,
- grommets on her black denim jacket.
- a long white scarf trails behind her like the milky way.
- snow falls and winter woman stops her car,
- gets out to walk to the trees above the roadside,
- stands under evergreen pines,
- waits for spirit and soul to meet body,
- waits for renewal,
- waits for winter to leave her garden heart.
- she sits in the drifts
- in a surrounding grove of birch trees,
- watches while her car fills with stars,
- watches the domed world fill with snow.
