"After Solstice," by Jim Yaussy Albright


After solstice, winter days just beginning to stretch
longer.
A frozen lake under overcast skies. The invisible sun
pours light through the clouds. They gleam.
Beneath the ice and thin layer of snow
light seems to beam from lustrous depths. The lake is
luminous.
The world shines. Two small figures,
dark against the glow,
skim over the ice, arms swinging.
They're skating, skating on
light.
