Miracles Welcome

a table of hanukkah candles
In the light of the candles
I hope to see a shift from all hatred,
the homecoming of all hostages.
I hope to feel the warmth of my mother’s memory
and my father’s love.
I hope to sense the dawning of a time
when the destruction of war gives way
to love and wisdom.
In the light of the candles
I hope to hold my children close
for as long as it takes to ensure them
a future of well-being filled with lovingkindness.
In the light of the candles
I hope to see, feel, sense the underlying strength of my people
during these especially vulnerable times.
