It's so delicate, the light.
And there's so little of it. The dark
Just delicate needles, the light,
in an endless night.
And it has such a long way to go
through such desolate space.
So let's be gentle with it.
So it will come again in the morning.
Translated by Robert Hedin
Into the holidays we go! I'll be back in this space later next week. I wish you all much joy and love for a Blessed Solstice, a Merry Christmas and a most Happy Holiday week!
