during These dark wintry days
light clings to the fringes.
holy by contrast
shimmers from The edge of storm clouds
splashes its singular message
along wind-blown alleys and dusty gutters
its vibrating glow
spreads from the corners of my prayer shawl
down my sleeves
into my hands
igniting the words I trace
a single digit

Awesome! You beautiful child of light — Love the ending – and the beginning and middle too — all of it and all of you too. Wish you a glorious light-filled day. 🙂
Awww…thank you, my sweet Krishnapriya…feeling the fringes a bit myself lately…but I know affirming what is, turning my face toward the Light, my heart is more likely to open to Its radiance, to feel and express Its glow. Finding your sparkling butterflies here is a delight, a dazzling promise for my day…blessings and love galore to you, beloved friend!
Yes, we look towards light and somehow light finds us. Better than looking at darkness and letting it cover us — at least that is my most, most humble view. love, love and hugs! 🙂
There is always light no matter how dark it gets 🙂

This blows me away, Joan.
I can envision the fringes and the shawl and the covering…
and the word “wintry” is a favorite word for me.
Makes me feel joy and presence. We cannot ignore “wintry” when we hear it.
