Snow gently falls.
Soft. Still. Illuminates predawn,
Blankets mud, vehicles, naked tree branches, the unlovely and the beautiful, homogenizes. White.
Feathery flakes, wide, irregular, contribute their individuality to the common.
Feels like peace.
Under porch shelter, blanket clutched around burdened shoulders, bare feet, lungs relax into deep, cold pulls and pushes,
Scent and taste of hope, renewal.
Arms of Mercy embrace, comfort, assure,
Good will conquer evil.
Look within, walk your path, steady, true, accompanied,
Break down, restore, break down, restore;
Such is the creation of wholeness.
