stretch

I have waited for Spring
steady light spreading
days long, bright
snow chased away
when rains fall hard

cold retreats
yet as my bones
thaw, parts of me
remain hard, frozen
creativity stiff, ice crusted
words, like tender 
muscles need to 
stretch slow, steady
so I shall begin
training, a writing fitness
routine, day by day
making myself accountable
to Him, and to others
spirits in community of warm

I ache for the melting

Beginning on the 1st of May 
I will join Sandra Heska King and others
working our way through Dave Harrity's book
Making Manifest
On Faith, Creativity and the Kingdom at Hand
