Winter Sun

Malca Litovitz
From:   To Light, To Water. Toronto: Lugus Publications, 1998.
"Winter Sun" also appeared in Zymergy Literary REview, No. 10 1991, was painted by Shelley Adler for the Great Lakes Exhibit, Harbourfront, 2001, and is included in great lakes logia ed. Joe Blades (Fredericton: Broken Jaw Press, 2001).


To light,
     to water,
and the flow of birds
through ancient stars.
To the wild sun of winter
     startling the dark green
trees: giants
of majestic silence.
To snow on roofs
and the peace of Sunday.
To quiet and certitude,
     to breathing, to air.
To acceptance, to dreams.
To disclosures of the sleeping heart,
     for air, for light.
