Little Lights

Happy New Year! 🙂

For the past three years when I’ve taken down our Christmas tree I haven’t bothered to pack away the lights. Instead, I’ve strung them up around the living room.



One of my highlights of 2012 was hearing Kei Miller reading in Belfast. The first words of his poetry collection ‘A Light Song of Light’ go like this;

A light song of light is not sung

in the light; what would be the point?

A light song of light swells up in dark

times, in wolf and knife time,

in knuckle and blood times; it hums

a small tune in daytime, but saves

its full voice for the midnight.

Thank you so much for your support in 2012. I wish you all the light you need this year.  x
