Another Chanukah has come to a close – an 8 day festival of purification and miraculous light and before the last of the beeswax melted, I captured these. We are so used to electric bulb but this softer glow was what once lit all our darknesses.

“Even this late it happens: the coming of love, the coming of light.”
“You wake and the candles are lit as if by themselves,”
“stars gather, dreams pour into your pillows, sending up warm bouquets of air.”
“Even this late the bones of the body shine”
“and tomorrow’s dust flares into breath.” ~ “The Coming of Light” ~ Mark Strand
