the saving in the snow

IMG_20150218_234734


At night, soft mercies fall to kiss you;

As you awake and begin anew.

 

Silent snow gathers on limb and rooftop;

A quiet plea to slow the rush – to stop.

 

An alter call to listen to your heart;

To turn inward, searching every part.

 

To remember this: Love wins;

Love covers a multitude of sins.

 

To see the world in soft new light;

Miles of grace-full, endless white.

 

A place to make fresh tracks;

A chance to carve new paths.

 

To become a better Lover,

Daughter, Sister, Friend and Mother.

 

Still, should you fail – as we all do,

Remember; Tomorrow too, is new.

  1. A winter’s version of Lamentations 3:21-26 – nature speaks of the grace and mercy of God. Very well put, Priscilla!
