Silently Through the Pine Trees Unseen

20180204_121755

When it snows I often think about God,

it must be exhausting carrying

the weight of knowing everything,

all the time

yet He moves silently through

the pine trees unseen,

and when He walks, there are never

any tracks in the snow,

only the peace

He left behind.

The Flow of the Winter Sun

Blue Pine with Snow

When ice flow melds into the ravens’ wings, freezing

and hindering their hate

we will drape ourselves with immeasurable beauty

the pine trees magnificent,

the strength

of the colder air

and the peace washing us

in the snow,

all within

the flow

of the winter sun.

Down by the Lake

100_1584

We can see our breath now My Love, especially down by the lake,

and as we pull close silently

closing our eyes,

I can see the fog drifting

over the water,

as if there is a voice drawing us,

and the trees

are our witnesses 

as we take off our gloves to hold hands,

loosing track of time,

staring then

into each other’s face.

As the Snow Fell Quietly

20180204_121757

There was a presence in the trees, as the snow fell quietly

it nearly took his breath away, this presence counted his scars,

and then there were none

as if he looked back

as a survivor

that could see the air now

a presence that held him

still, he remembered it suddenly

as if it were light.

Yes,

it was called

peace.
