Every year the poet Jim Dodge makes a poem and prints it on the winter solstice at Tangram Press. We look forward to his annual envelope with letter and poem. Unfailingly, the poem provides a bridge to the future. Here are the first lines of this year's poem, titled "The Sanctuary of Light."
When pressed, stressed, fearful, unsure,
Simply slip back to the composing core
Of what you were, will be, and eternally are:
Pure energy vibrating between particle and wave.
