ursa major, great bear

Ursa Major, by Lisa Lunney

The great bear,
Winter incarnate.

The link
To darkness and light.

Ursa Major

Deep in the season of miracles
The great bear
Wheels overhead.

In the frigid winter darkness
We rejoice in light.

As the frozen ground
Sleeps beneath a crystalline sky.

The great bear
Slumbers in the earth,
Awakens in the sky,
During solstice.

When the Great Bear emerges from deep sleep,

Light and life return to earth.
