The sun set at 4:31. Our drive home from the urgent care center held none of the cares such a ride would suggest. My son needed a required COVID test to satisfy the State’s requirement for his safe participation in school. Whenever it reopens after the holiday.
Now, the deep of the longest night settles in. The neighbor’s lights defy the dark, as the Yuletide fires of old once did. Somehow, when we want to, we all find a way to hope. Therefore, if we sit still long enough, we will hear that gentlest whisper. When we do, if we are wise, we will bow before it.
Even a single tongue of flame compels the deepest dark to yield. Just imagine what the light has to say.
