Solstice Lamp

The night - that last night - Thomas came home from hospital, I lit a lamp and hung it outside our gate so, as he was driven back to us, he could see home from the earliest possible moment. I couldn't wait those extra seconds for him to know how much we wanted him back.

The dark is good for me this year, a good time to be trying to brew new life.

But still, the tiny lengthening of the light feels like the world hanging out a lamp for me. I will get home. And if I am very, very lucky, I will see the sunrise.


  1. Happy Christmas Lunar - I hope the new year brings you everything you wish for. X

  2. Wishing you many a full cauldron this year, dear Lunar!

  3. Blessings Be...I hope you saw the sun rise. We just have rain, clouds and more rain....

  4. I wish with all the strength in me for your dream to come true. Xxx
