lace and glory

this season of
the shortest days
the velvet dark deeper 
than memory 
recalls
a hole that pulls you in
fingers harsh, cold
muffled but not
silent
don't linger long
for there are gifts barely 
hidden
how He scatters snow 
like lace, the thick
and thin
creating space
for glory revealed
without apology


prompted by tweetspeak poetry


and hanging out at the pub

This is so lovely. How wonderful to share the beauty at a time when so many struggle to see it.
Thank you!

glory revealed without apology...i like that... being winter - being what it is - no excuses - there's beauty in this

When i see the Sun peek in on a cold blue day..

it's just as exciting..to see as the birth
of a newborn child...

Life is what it reminds me of
brave..and never fully
gone as long as it is
living.
