Impressions While Walking on a Cold Winter Morning, 1/5/2017

Posted on: January 5, 2017

It is morning in winter
A teal blue sky
Luminous as the sun prepares its rise
I am standing in a park
Inhabiting the brittle silence of the cold air
The bare trees silhouetted against
The blue glow
Like upturned brooms of witches and warlocks
You can see Nature’s design and chaos
Simultaneously thriving
In the branches of
Each leafless tree
Nature’s recipe
Subjected to the forces of wind and rain
Producing the wonders of life I’m looking at now
They are impossibly beautiful
Their arms outstretched to the heavens
Begging for rain
Worshiping the sun
Beckoning visitors
In need of shelter or home
This might be the image
My mind’s eye sees the moment I die
These trees etched against the sky
Mean everything all at once

Horizon this morn
Cracked its shell like an oyster
Showing off its pearl
