As the World Spins, So Do We

Faramir looks into the untouched whiteness and rubs his tired eyes.

She sleeps...curled up like a fern-frond...born early...at the winter-solstice...when even the light is delicate.

Elboron stands beside him in silence, seemingly contemplating the white puffs of his breath. Faramir looks down and feels a jolt of defiance. This sombre mood is not what she needs.
He lifts his son up and spins him around in rapid sideways motion into the snow-covered field. When he looks back he sees wild circular tracery, filling with shadow as the light fades...on the shortest day.

As the light grows stronger, so will she.
