Winter Wings

Blue Pine with Snow

Winter wings usually appear when we are filled with poetry,

walking through the pine trees

in the snow.

But sometimes

oak trees work just as well.

Another Beautiful Season

20181115_103657

Don’t be dismayed if you see a few snowflakes

mixed into the fall colors,

it just means another beautiful season

is right behind this one.

Ain’t that amazing?

The Wind Coming Down from the Mountains

100_5360

As the winter storm roared through the trees, thunder rumbled rolling

through the valley, having been sent down the side of the mountain,

and I realized our spirits are so fragile, we often sense

the loneliness of the wind, with snowflakes swirling,

and yet inside our cocoons, we acknowledge the safety

and that God was never angry, even though

He probably does live in the wind

coming down

from the mountains.
