The Polar Night Embrace

In this poem by the Sami poet Inger-Mari Aikio, someone talks – in the “darkest of the dark” – to the polar night, in which lives go out like candles. The polar night in which eyes can embrace, the polar night which doesn’t let go until the sun displaces its darkness.

By Inger-Mari Aikio
