the air so clean
in our lockdown days
pulsing through the stars at night
were earthlight weeps and breaks

Earthlight was first published in Ribbons, Spring/Summer 2020: Volume 16, Number 2. A very big thank you to Michael McClintock at Tanka Café and the team at Ribbons for featuring my poem and putting this beautiful edition together.
Wishing you all a blessed Sunday and a peaceful week ahead,
with love from Xenia xxx
