At the winter solstice they say
the veil is thin
(Who says that? Who are they
who tell us how the world works)
They may be right, though,
About the winter solstice
the long night that starts early enough
that you can let go
of the spirits
that bind you
to the year just past
as they pass
to the other side

for Lynn Kearney’s memorial

  1. I enjoy the darkness. Since I live in a warm climate, I rely upon darkness for reprieve from the heat. I consider heat to be over 60 degrees. I find sunlight and warmth depressing. Clearly I was built backwards.
