Throughout history, humans have celebrated the rebirth of sunlight after the darkest period of the year – The Winter Solstice.

The Longest Night is a poetic celebration of this seasonal phenomena.

“And with the song

of one small bird

and the sun’s answering smile

the journey toward spring

begins.”
