Beauty in a Deep Winter’s Soul…

28 02 2014

frozen road






I want to see beauty in the depth of my winter’s soul . . .

But all that I see is frozen . . .

dreams, suspended in crystals;

paths, obscured by the blowing uncertainties of my life;

potential, slowly crushed beneath glacial mountains.


I am cold . . .

no one hears my voice over the howling winds of daily expectations.

Is there hope?

A half-frozen stream offers unexpected insight . . .

A soulful rhythm emerging from a quiet, icy surface;

evidence of life flowing beneath;

movement in a frozen landscape . . .


I bend down to listen;

wondering where this Life force has been –- where She is going . . .


She whispers –- “Hope” . . .

I love winters like this…it brings back so many memories of Canadian winters when I was a lad.

Yes, just as you have had your fair share of rain this season, we have had more snow here in the Mid-Atlantic states than normal. Beautiful scenery though…
