An Elegy for Ukraine

I wrote this piece about a celebration in Ukraine called Ivana Kupala Day. It is a beautiful night where lovers jump over fires, and if they don’t complete it, are not meant to be. And I imagined such things as magic flowers, and garlands hung in hair, being gone from the world.

Thank you Kim Stapf for your beautiful photo.
