When the candles are lit,
and the blessings sung,
I sit and watch the wavering flames,
imagining the light of our menorah
reaching through the dark
from our house
to our neighbor’s,
to homes too far to see—
all of them connecting
in an earthborn constellation of stars.
Happy Hanukkah. Merry Christmas. Joyous Winter. Good wishes to all–no matter what you celebrate.
