Courage on Solstice

Beautiful daughter

in black lace
answers
 the door,

two children 
stand
with flowers,

warm quiche,

they remove
their boots, nod
slowly yes


to visit
her mother’s body,

now empty,

and whiter
than the snow
that falls. Their only

sight from candles,
as the sun
stands still,

preparing to return,
at last,
the light.
