Naked trees and smoking chimneys

Line the cold gray skyline

Inspecting the frozen ground through my kitchen window

Small animals have left tracks on my snow covered lawn

Evidence of life in an otherwise dead world


Suddenly a thin ray of sunlight tears a small hole in the gray

Like the precision of a surgeon’s knife

A simple acknowledgment from God

That there is more to life than what I see

I live by faith and not by sight


This too will pass

And I look forward to Spring.
