Sun return

Every year I go out to watch the sun rise on the winter solstice. This year the solstice was at 3am so the sun rise on that day did, indeed, mark the turning of time. The days were getting longer, the sun had returned.

From The Creation of Ea
Only in silence, the word
Only in silence the word,

Only in dark, the light
Only in dark the light,

Only in dying, life
Only in dying life:

Bright the pelican's flight on the empty wave
Bright the pelican’s flight
On the empty wave.

    Gorgeous pictures. I like the LeGuin to go along with, although the substitution of the rather humorous pelican for “hawk” is a bit incongruous.
