Balm of Night

DSCF8831

In the space of night

in the disappearance of earthly delight,

what magic alights

what joy brims bright,

bearing witness as Mother might

to our curious rites,

our sad and longing,

our trembling and holy plights.

What salve the night,

what balm the inner light. – TS xo
