[another] winter


[2 Corinthians 5: 17-Therefore, if anyone is in Christ,
he is a new creation; the old is gone, the new has come]

winter.
death.
death all around.
just look at the ground
there is nothing, no life
no sound.
only snow.
only white.
but
be not dismayed
for the white
of the snow
may be a cruel sight
but
this sight can be taken
as a new light!
a light to grow
a life out of the snow
a new life
a new creation
for spring will bring
great celebration!

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
