The Jaguar Prince and the Winter Solstice

He greeted the new Mayan sun
at the place where the first sunrise
of the day peers over the horizon
but this morning was special, a new sun
for the next 1,500 years,
bringing hope and a release from suffering.

Treasures were planted in sacred places
at the time of the Winter Solstice,
to be uncovered when the first cycle ended.
Now it is a time of enlightenment and healing
a time for forgiveness and love.

Oral traditions kept the story alive
so tribal gatherings were organized
around the world to bind people 
to one another so community 
of humankind can thrive.
