It’s the middle of winter. It’s time to rest and appreciate another year gone. It’s time to see distant family members, or remember those we’ve lost. It’s also time to look ahead to summer and know that those long days will be with us once again, just as soon as the Earth gets us there.
Here’s a reminder of summer on Westray. It’s a poem in the form of a haiku by Edwin Rendall of the Wheeling Steen Gallery.
