Extremities



(heavenly angels please remember the words you gave to me)

The truth of my life

One day
walking in an endless blizzard
being totally at peace
white doves descending on me

Next day
birds singing joyfully
the light incredibly bright
the sky indigo blue

What was it?
The wind done carving the ice

What shattered it all?
hurting so deeply

Thank God for the birds
ptarmigan and little chickadees

Yes indeed. And thanks for the journey to the cabin, the picture of your companion, for your skill at observation. It sometimes lifts me up to hear your love for your place on the planet. I float a little. I really like that.
