Fire and Ice Photography: Month Poem -- December

The winter solstice is a singular event in the year.  For a moment, the planet pauses and turns back to the light.  The grey of November has gone to black. The need to brighten and color the long night is universal and ancient.  The poem and photo for this month proved to be the most elusive of all.   December was the last of my efforts to complete a 43 year quest to document a year in Michigan with poetry and photography. There were many attempts over the years, but nothing ever seemed to work.   It wasn't until the Pure Michigan Travel Blog wanted to publish all twelve months in celebration of Michigan's 178th birthday that it all came together.  I was trying to make it about Christmas, but in reality, it's about the shortest day of the year.  Once the poem came, I still needed a photo.   Just in time, there it was on Main Street in Harbor Springs.
