A New Light: Hanukkah Prayer

A new light.

Not the one before the ark; the one that burns eternal.

Or even the one that still hovers over creation, in these days of darkness that nearly devour our own souls.

A new light that enjoins us to remembrance and to the mysterious holy presence among us. 

That allows us to behold the limitless vitality of each moment.

And every human being as a dancing flame.

For giving light is the force that frees all of us and with each flicker, redeems the world.
