Winter Doldrums

IceThe sound of the snow

crunching under my feet

the frozen toes and

this loss of heat

has me shaking in my car

and dreams of traveling afar

far away from here.

I can not contain this

migrant heart

when winds of change

begin to start

and here on

an indistinct day

when storms blow in

and make me say

“I’m far too long

on winter’s day.”

A ray of light

on silver thread

finding some joy

when joy is dead

my hand outstretched

and open wide

Lord help me brave

this wintry tide.
