In the Midst of Winter

In the Midst of WinterSometimes, there are days,

when everything seems pointless,


even as the sun rises,

and the sky is a crystal blue,

and all seems brand new.

It is then, in that moment,

that something beyond our understanding,

opens our eyes and ears to what is beautiful around us,

no matter how we try to deny it,

it comes to us and enters our souls,

ours hearts, so tenderly,

that we once again,

see the world as brand new.

  1. Jim, thank you so much. Yes, it is so and it is that unknowable moment that captures us to write another day. And Bravo to you too for your play that you have so generously shared with us. Wonderful and much appreciated. Karen
