First Night of Hanukkah

Take these longest nights,
like a staircase to the starlit sky,
like a winding path
towards that small seed of light,
the coming sun,
the morning breaking into
a remembering…
Falling into velvet slumber,
dreaming
of your true self
the one who greets you
with the waking day,
as you travel on
this long dark road home,
filled with light…

*****

Kindling the Hanukkah lights Milton,
just as you taught me...
I can still hear the rumble of your dear voice...
